Coffee Shop Puts Up 'Offensive' Sign, Gets More Attention Than They Bargained For

One Virginia coffee house is discriminating against certain customers and charging them higher prices. This is because there is a specific code when you go into CUPS Coffee & Tea in Virginia. It’s a code of politeness, and if you don’t follow that code you’ll be singled out from customers who say “hello” and “please.”

"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," Owner Austin Simms told WDBJ.

Out of all of the problems in the world, Simms has a problem with people who don’t go out of their way to be nice. He’s convinced that forcing people to be polite and say certain things will solve the world’s problems, according to WDBJ.

Here’s what he wrote on a sandwich board outside his spot:

"One small coffee"
$5.00
"One small coffee, please"
$3.00
"Hello, I'd like one small coffee please."
$1.75

Simms says he wrote it as a joke and didn’t expect to get so much attention from the sign. However, the photos are at the top of a Reddit online message board now. He had newspapers and cameras showing up at his coffee shop within days of putting the sandwich board up. It’s even been in a newspaper in England.
