Manners are free, and quite honestly, I think manners adds to a person’s character. But sadly, some people missed out on that memo.
There are so many people out there who aren’t familiar with basic manners like please and thank you.
It’s their lack of human decency that really annoys me. There is no need to forget your manners because forgetting them can have a big impact on someone’s day.
I absolutely hate rude people, that’s why I always try to remember my manners at all times.
I hold the door open for anyone who is struggling to open it, I’ve even offered someone help when they struggled to get their pram on the train. But it still surprises me that there still is a large number of people who forget that they should remember their manners in situations like this.
It looks like I’m not the only person around who is unimpressed with some people’s lack of manners.
Austin Simms is a coffee shop owner in Roanoke.
He was also fed up with dealing with rude customers every day, so he decided to do something about it.
“I decided because I need to solve all the injustices of the world to start charging more for people who didn’t take the time to say hello and connect and realize we’re all people behind the counter.”
So Austin put up a sign in front of his coffee shop which clearly indicated his new pricing policy.
If any customer was rude and forgot to say ‘please’ when ordering their drink, the price would get higher.
It’s certainly a handy way to make sure your customers remember they’re manners!
I think more places should implement this!
To Austin’s surprise, the sign went viral with thousands of people sharing the photo around the world. a bunch of cameras showing up and it ended up in the newspaper!
Eventually, his sign attracted the attention of a few news stations, and it even ended up in the local newspaper!
Many people agreed with Austin’s ingenious idea. After all, manners are free!
This is an incredible idea and I can’t believe someone has thought of it sooner.
I wonder if more stores will start using this in their own stores!
What do you think about this idea? Should more stores use this?
