French cafe begins charging extra for rudeness... with a coffee costing seven euros if you do not say ‘please’ or wish the barista a nice day

It's said that good manners don't cost you anything and, for the customers of one café, they could even help save the pennies.

A café in the south of France has called out its less well-mannered customers by hiking the price of a coffee if they don't say please.

The Petite Syrah café in Nice, on the French Riviera, is charging customers €7 for 'a coffee', but a more affordable €4.25 for a 'a coffee please'.

But those customers who request their caffeinated beverage with a cheery 'good day, a coffee please' get the best deal of all. Their coffees will set them back just €1.40.

This could be a real money maker. Especially in France, from what I have heard.

Cool gimmick. Probably will pack them in for a while then fizzle

I had almost the same idea, except the employees were required to be rude. No one caters to masochists.

There's a web comic about that.
