A Roanoke, VA coffee shop has been a viral hit thanks to the shop's insistence that customers mind their manners. CUPS Coffee & Tea first began gaining attention when someone posted a funny picture of the shop's menu board.
“One small coffee $5.00. One small coffee, please. $3,00. Hello, I’d like one small coffee please. $1.75,” the board reads.
The image spread like wildfire across the internet. Eventually the story made its way to a newspaper in England. Soon, news crews were rolling up to this little coffee shop.
"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," said owner Austin Simms.
