Apparently, there’s a diner in Denver which jokingly charges its customers for asking stupid questions
The diner charges 38 cents to those customers who cannot get their heads wrapped around the simplest things.
They even have that written on their menu as a side option.
Of course, Tom’s Diner isn’t trying to offend anyone, in fact, their goal is to add some humor on the menu and it seems that it’s working well. After a Redditor shared a bill with a ‘stupid question’ charge, it quickly went viral.
The general manager of the diner, Hunter Landry, told TODAY Food that they are just trying to have some fun with their menu. “It’s meant to be playful. It’s good to keep things light in today’s world,” he explained. “When we have a good fun table that engages with us or when they ask about the charge, it’s always fun to add it on,” Landry added.
Turns out, the customers love this idea. Some even ask stupid questions on purpose. One customer wondered, “Are there any dues for the turkey club sandwich?” Another one asked, “Does the ice have any water in it?”
A few years ago, the diner’s menu included a few more funny options. For those who aimed for a healthy meal, the menu offered: ‘Skip your next meal’ for $Money well saved and ‘Walk home’ for $ Priceless.
