This restaurant found a particularly ridiculous way to make more money, and surfers are furious | Israel today


A restaurant in Sydney, Australia, asked for 20 Australian cents to cut into half a sandwich it was selling - and caused an uproar online • One of the surfers wrote: "Should we start charging for going to the bathroom?" • Believe it or not, this is not the worst case they complained about

The corona epidemic and the economic crisis that is emerging around the world, not to mention the shortage of certain foods, are causing businesses to look for creative and even strange ways to make a little more money.

Just such a case happened recently in Australia - and went viral.

A Vietnamese restaurant operating in Sydney managed to create a wave of derisive reactions after it became known that it was charging its customers 20 Australian cents for crossing a sandwich they bought for two.

Yes, you read that right: Want to eat your sandwich without choking?

Pay a sandwich tax.

"You know inflation is in bad shape when you are charged money to take out the knives," wrote the surfer who started the viral thread on Reddit, which provoked many angry reactions from surfers about the restaurant.

"The customers will vote with their feet, and the place will crash within six months," predicted doubt-doubt another disgruntled surfer.

"Should we start charging customers for going to the bathroom as well?", scoffed another surfer.

"Time is money. The 10 seconds it takes to explain where the bathroom is could be used to prepare the sandwich," he concluded sarcastically.

Special service?

Another surfer in the thread shared that this is not the only restaurant that charges for "special services".

"Every time a waiter came to our table, he charged us 20 cents," said the surfer about his eating experience at a Spanish restaurant in Barcelona.

The prize for the most delusional payment was eventually taken by a surfer who said that on the bill presented to him and his tablemates at a restaurant in Colorado, USA, there appeared a payment of 38 cents for "a stupid question that the waiter had to answer". Well, everyone and the records he reaches.
