Shahan Ramkissoon warns bartenders this festive season

Don't neglect your regulars for holidaymakers or else...

The locals in any part of the world always make sure to take care of their people during the holidays. 

We say this wearyingly because sometimes locals don't know how to tip and this is a fact of the service industry. But on behalf of the good tippers, former eNCA news anchor, Shahan Ramkissoon has made a public announcement on TikTok. 

In a recent video, Ramkissoon who resides in Cape Town makes a public warning to bartenders, club owners and bouncers. 

He has very succinctly reminded bartenders, club owners and bouncers to be weary of their regulars during the festive season and not to get too carried away with tourists. 

As many of you might know, many people from the service industry get carried away in the hopes of tourists giving them big tips.
