A lot of folks can barely function before they have their morning cup of coffee. Before drinking your morning coffee, it can be difficult to be polite to those who we interact with, which is why coffee baristas often find themselves having to deal with rude customers.
Now, one barista is completely fed up with this, and he’s taking action!
Austin is a barista at CUPS Coffee and Tea, and he recently decided to put a sign up outside the business to send a brutal message to rude customers. The sign read:
“One small coffee”
“One small coffee, please”
“Hello, I’d like one small coffee 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,” Austin said.
The sign has quickly gone viral, with people all over the world agreeing with it.
“Good for him,” one social media user wrote. “People need to start using their manners more nowadays. People have forgotten that if you use your manners, you will get what you give.”
“I don’t get people,” added another user. “Kindness is awesome, loving, genuinely caring…that’s life to me. Without kindness, there is nothing. And a bonus, it always always comes back to you.”
“My son still gets odd comments and stares from someone because he says ‘yes ma’am,’ ‘No, sir’ every time,” a third person wrote. “His response to those comments? ‘My mama said that was the right thing to do.’ Manners are important and need to be instilled early. Just sayin.’”
