Austin Simms of Roanoke, VA, thought some of his customers could use a little help with their manners. The CUPS Coffee & Tea worker put up a sign indicating that the more impolite you are the more you’re going to have to pay.
The Sandwich Board Reads:
“One small coffee”
“One small coffee, please”
“Hello, I’d like one small coffee please.”
Each phrase indicates what a customer should say to receive the most inexpensive price. The less rude the better. Sometimes we’re so busy when we order our morning cup of joe — or barely awake — we forget that the person serving us is in fact another human being.
