Angel-in-us cafe gives discounts to customers who order politely

Korean cafe chain Angel-in-us is holding a special discount on the first Wednesday of every month based on the “politeness” of the customers.

Angel in us cafe polite discount

Translated by Netizenbuzz
– “Americano.” (cold tone)… 50% extra charge
– “One Americano”… no discount
– “Please give me one Americano”… 20% discount
– “Hello, OOO-ssi. Please give me one delicious cup of Americano”… 50% discount

As pointed out by some netizens, the “polite discount” is not unusual in western countries. Charging extra on “rude” customers is not a norm tough, hope they are just joking about that or there will be some interest scenes.
