At a particular cafe in France, that's how much a cup of coffee 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.
La Petite Syrah manager Fabrice Pepino told France's The Local that the elevated prices started as a joke. Employees of the French cafe apparently noticed an increase of customers who were in a rush to get their caffeine fix during the lunchtime hours.
"I know people say that French service can be rude but it's also true that customers can be rude when they’re busy" Pepino told The Local.

While La Petite Syrah is not the first cafe to implement the idea, we give them credit for using a creative method to get customers to remember their manners. Culled
