This is your “I have a guest whom had dinner at ABC restaurant and the guest was rude, to the point of being obnoxious to the staff.”

When will service standards in Singapore improve? Sounds as remote as Singapore qualifying for World Cup (This is not about patriotism..this is about realism).

In this tiny country, with restaurants, hotels, shopping malls mushrooming at every notches, appalling guest behaviours are a common sight and job hazards for service front-liners.

Well, it’s time to sit down for a minute and ponder about
