A US restaurant has gone viral for charging customers for asking “a stupid question” during the meal.
A customer who did not reveal the “stupid question” he asked shared a receipt from the US restaurant, Tom’s Diner in Denver on social media and it reveals he was billed $0.38 for 1 stupid Question along with other items, ‘1 Side Mashed Potatoes $2.99, 1 Chick Tenders Basket $9.00.’
The aim is to make customers think before asking something silly, patronising or downright stupid while at the restaurant, Metro reports.
A server at the restaurant simply identified as Sandra said the restaurant has a lot of silly things on its menu. She said:
“It’s just a bit of fun. It’s funny and lighthearted and is just meant to make the customers smile. We have lots of silly things on our menu like that.”
See some reactions to the post below:
‘If I got paid to listen to people’s stupid questions I’d probably be a billionaire,’ one person wrote.
Another user added: ‘They charge you 38 cents? S—, if I charged for every stupid question I was asked, I’d be f—–[g] rich,’ and another person commented, ‘Omg I love Tom’s diner!!’
According to the restaurant’s manager, Hunter Landry, one of the favorite questions he loves to charge for is: “Does the ice have any water in it?”
An ex-employee said: “A lot of times, customers would be disappointed at not being charged for asking a stupid question so they’d ask and a server would then add it.”
