What are your bad manners costing you?

One of my major pet hates is rudeness. I cannot stand rudeness in any form. Which is why I LOVE this story about a cafe in the South of France that is charging extra for customers who forget their manners when ordering coffee.


A coffee” will set you back €7, according to the sign, while “a coffee please” is a little more affordable, at €4.25.

If you want keep your expenses down, and stay friends with your local barista, however, the best option is “Hello, a coffee please,” which will only cost you €1.40.

Saying please and thank you is so simple, that there is no excuse at all not to do it. We are ALL busy. Not to mention no excuse for not saying thank you when you’re on the road – how annoying is THAT.

What do you think? Good idea?
