Semey: The Toughest Place to be a Waitress

9 Oct

There’s a BBC series called The Toughest Place to be a … which sends train drivers, midwives and suchlike from the UK to do their job in parts of the world where conditions are less amenable.

An  article from Tengri News  makes the city of Semey, in Eastern Kazakhstan, look like  an ideal location if they ever wanted to film ‘The Toughest Place to be a Waitress.’

The  story told how a disgruntled 20-year-old customer started punching her waitress  because she disliked the way she had been served.  It is true that  the quality of waiting staff in Kazakhstan leaves a lot to be desired, but Kazaxia feels that physical violence is not the answer, although sometimes it is tempting.
