There are two types of waitress you want to tip. The first will climb onto your lap for an extra $20 while the DJ pushes the sounds of Whitesnake through the speakers, and she’ll earn every dime of it. The other, however, is far more dangerous. She won’t take your money, but she will take your life.
North Korean women dream of becoming waitresses, and the job is only available to those who come from the right families, according to Open Radio for North Korea:
“The waitress probably comes from a privileged background,” said a North Korean defector who used to work as a performer in the North. “Only women from good family backgrounds are given the chance to work abroad.”
The opportunity to work abroad is a rare privilege in this reclusive state. Of course, candidates have to come from politically reliable families, but there are other criteria, including the ability to dance and play a musical instrument and a university degree. Most important, however, is that waitressing is for hotties only. If you’ve been smacked around by the “ugly stick,” you probably won’t be allowed to carry a tray.
Oh, and you need to qualify for a license to kill. Open Radio for North Korea also noted that some of the waitresses are spies.
So, there are two women you don’t want to stiff in this world: a stripper and a North Korean waitress. Wait, maybe you do …
