Aunties reserve tables for customers


Many have been economically affected by the doings of Covid-19; Like the elderly who have had to come out of retirement to supplement their income and assuage their fears of burdening their family members. 

Businesses like this bar that’s tucked away in Tha Chang turned the tables around for aunties in the neighbourhood; they’re paying these ladies to queue up and reserve tables for their customers. 


No more waiting for customers


Aunties queue up in place of patrons – sometimes before the bar opens their doors. Bangkok bars tend to overcrowd; this solution thus gives bargoers extra time to get ready and pre-drink whilst giving the aunties some extra money, according to ป้าป้าจองโต๊ะ.
