It pays to be polite

This sign from a French cafe Tweeted by @tokai06, a journalist in Nice, shows that it is to your benefit to be polite...

The sign is giving the price of a standard small espresso when seated on the terrasse or sidewalk.
  • If you only say "a coffee" the price is 7 euros
  • If you say "a coffee, please" the price is 4.25 euros
  • But, if you correctly order it by saying "Good morning, a coffee, please" you are rewarded with the price of 1.40 euros.
Such a deal...
