This comic shows estimated average frequency. I wanted to include the pitch drop experiment, but it turns out the gif format has some issues with decade-long loops.

French cafe charges extra for rudeness

5 Comments and 16 Shares

French Rude Cafe

A cafe in Nice, France charges rude customers five times more for a cup of coffee than those who say hello and please.

"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.

The manager says that although the pricing scheme has never been enforced, customer civility is up. Cheekiness is on the rise as well:

"Most of my customers are regulars and they just see the funny side and exaggerate their politeness," he said, adding "They started calling me 'your greatness' when they saw the sign."

€1.40 seems like a bargain for France!

Too bad we can't get newsblur's author to charge extra for your presence.

It's a shame NewsBlur props your eyelids open with toothpicks and forces you to read comments, then takes control over your fingers and forces you to reply to them. That's an awkward feature. :-)

that warm fuzzy was short-lived. renewing the call for a "mute" feature...
