You can be rude at this coffee shop if you want to be but it’s going to cost you

The sandwich board that stands in front of the coffee shop says it all

“One Small Coffee”” $5.00

“One Small Coffee please” $3.00

“Hello, I’d like one small coffee please” $1.75

If one wants to be rude, then they can pay the price for it.

A little courtesy can really pay off for those who want to enjoy a great cup of coffee at a reasonable price.

The Lesson Behind The Message

Mr. Simms believed it was time for other people to realize that those who are behind the counter are people too.

More Than Just The Coffee

Along with their cup of coffee patrons of this CUPS store can be sure that they will get a smile to go with it at no charge.

The most that the majority of people expect from their local coffee shop is great coffee, but not this.

Spiderman decides to drop in to pick up his morning coffee.

Delivering A Message

Other messages to be remembered

While the coffee shop message was a clever one, there are plenty of other signs that make an impact and tend to get the point across.

Trespassers May Want To Think Twice

It seems that the old traditional trespassing sign just doesn’t work anymore. Really trespassing is another form of rudeness.

This one just might make one think twice before going on property where they are not welcome. If nothing else the humor in it will not allow people to use the excuse they didn’t see it.

If You Are Thinking Of Sign Hanging

Lots of people like to go around posting different signs.

It is not unusual to see fences plastered with yardsale signs or missing pet signs. Not on this fence although it seems to have a double standard.

Treating Rudeness With Rudeness

Some signs are as rude as the rudeness they are addressing.

Nobody likes to have to clean up after someone else’s pet, but perhaps this sign is being more blunt than it needs to be

Rudeness Recognized

It isn’t just among strangers where rudeness can be prevalent

This sign about wine sends a cute message that sympathizes with dealing with relatives that can be difficult.

The Cups Coffee owner made a good point with his signage and really brings to mind that it cost nothing to be courteous and polite to others.

There are times where words can be more powerful than actions. This would be a good thing to remember the next time when one is thinking about being a little rude to their coffee server, or anyone else for that matter.
