Hello.... I just arrived in Aruba for a work term and did my first shop for my apartment today. I shopped at Kong Hing. I happened to mention it was my fist time shopping on the island. The young man who helped me to the car with my groceries said 'If it is your first time shopping here you don't know that we don't get paid, that we only work for tips'. I did give him a tip but I really felt he was handing me a line. Does anyone know if this is true? I really have my doubts but want to know for the next time.
(I really didn't mind giving him a tip, I just hate feeling 'new'.)
