Edgar tries to lure people in to Kalypso â€“ the Greek restaurant on Robson â€“ by dressing in uniform and promising free homous or tzatziki with the purchase of an entree. Heâ€™s 28.
ONLY: Where are you from originally?
ONLY: And why this job?
Edgar: I try to bring people inside. Try to talk to them, try to show the menu.
ONLY: Did you know the guys that own this place before you got the job?
Edgar: Yeah Iâ€™ve known them for almost six years.
ONLY: And what does the uniform represent?
Edgar: This is a traditional Greek costume. Military.
ONLY: What do you think about having to wear this kind of uniform for your job?
Edgar: Oh I donâ€™t mind it. For people itâ€™s very easy to recognise. A lot of people like it, and then they come to the restaurant. Thereâ€™s a lot of restaurants around here.
ONLY: Did you ever see Fast Times at Ridgemont High?
ONLY: When Brad gets fired from All American Burger and has to take that job where he has to dress up as a pirate?
Edgar: No, but I like this kind of a job. You can meet a lot of people â€” different kinds of people. You get to meet actors and meet friends. Itâ€™s nice. And I can practice my English, which is good for me.
ONLY: Do you like bubble tea?
ONLY: Whatâ€™s your favourite flavour?
Edgar: Umâ€¦ Green tea.
ONLY: Yeah I like the green tea too. I just had one. Iâ€™m full of pearls.
Edgar: I like it itâ€™s so good. Iâ€™m waiting for summer to start buying them.
ONLY: You ever drink mango nectar?
ONLY: Oh Iâ€™m hooked on it these days. If you like mangosâ€¦
Edgar: Iâ€™m going to try it then.
