Thai waitresses fined after serving customers in revealing clothing

Four waitresses were arrested and fined for serving customers wearing nothing but knickers and aprons. The women, all aged between 24 and 34, were hired to pull in customers during the night shifts at the restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand. Thrilled customers flocked to the venue last Friday (November 15) night as they served beers, bar snacks and collected glasses. Pictures of the trio sparked outrage from conservative locals and cops descended on the Paikanyai bar before summoning the workers to the police station yesterday (November 20). The girls and the owner were each fined 2,000 baht (50GBP) for public indecency. New staff will now be ordered to dress appropriately. Police Colonel Alongkorn Sirisongkram said: "We saw the videos and pictures of the pretties working at the restaurant and it was agreed that this was not an appropriate way to dress in public.'' The four waitresses said they received 2,500 baht (64GBP) each for the two-hour shifts from 9 pm to 11 pm serving food and clearing tables. Customers were happy with their costumes and the sales of drinks had increased, they told police. Police Colonel Sirisongkram added: ''When we visited the restaurant the girls were not there but we had enough evidence to proceed with arresting them. They admitted their wrongful behaviour and accepted fines.''
