Dear America, add coat check services!
It was brought up at dinner this evening, how much we enjoy certain things here in Kazakhstan, and what things we miss about the states. One of the number one things we all agreed on was the coat-check services that ALL places offer here. It is fantastic. Especially, since we all have big fur/wool/down-filled jackets that take up a lot of space. Every restaurant you go into has this service. You can find it at the mall. You can even find it in grocery stores. It is a great service. I do not understand why more places back home do not do this. People end up hanging their coats over their chairs, which end up on the floor most of the time. It's also a great way to add additional jobs. A minimum wage job is not going to put the slightest dent in most places, and it is a service that patrons appreciate, and will return to the restaurant because of. Here, they are free. I propose they would stay that way in America too, but knowing my home country, that wouldn't be the case. At least for the time being, I can enjoy this. Thank you, Kazakhstan.
