This Cafe Will Charge You Extra For Being A Jerk | Coffee News | Scoop.it

Would you pay nearly $10 for a plain ol' cup of coffee?

At a particular cafe in France, that's how much a cup of joe will cost you -- unless you say the magic words: "Hello" and "please." According to a sign posted in La Petite Syrah, the French cafe charges extra for rudeness.

A reporter for local newspaper Nice-Matin spotted the humorous sign and shared a photo of the various coffee prices on Twitter. A typical cup of coffee with a "Bonjour" and "S'il vous plaît" runs 1.40 euros (around $2), but customers must fork over nearly $4 more if they skip the greeting, or about $8 more if they skip both.
