    Never ceases to amaze me the ways businesses find to turn customers away.

    A restaurant that doesn’t list prices is saying to customers “we are charging too much for the same stuff you can buy at another place down the road. Don’t buy from us.”

    “Market Price” used to be a scam used to multiply the price of some food item to several times it’s actual price on the market. Another way that restaurants told customers “don’t eat here.”

    Life’s too short for greedy stupidities.

    Used to get catalogs that didn’t list prices. They went in the recycling bin. That kind of chicanery says “don’t buy here.”

    Same with webpages that don’t bother to list prices or those that said “call for price.” Time is money and I just wasn’t interested in the nonsense. Such things scream “don’t buy from them.”

    If you have to ask the price you can’t afford it/her.

    I also hate those restaurants that think they are trendy by not spelling out the price, such as “Sandwich, 8.5” instead of “Sandwich, $8.50.”

    I’ll add: websites that won’t tell you the actual price until you check out. I’ll just leave and find another source.

    And that’s another reason why they’re closing all the Piehole’s restaurants….

    Have you ever eaten in a restaurant where only the host’s menu has prices?

    I like the restaurants the post their menu outside the door – with the prices.

    Not sure if that tree restaurant can BE snooty, given the name “Cafe Piehole”… I’ve heard the term “piehole” as a not-so-nice reference to the mouth…

    Many of the little restaurants where I live don’t have individual menus. They’ll have a Signboard with the offerings for that specific meal. Sometimes they post the prices, sometime they don’t. If they don’t, it is expected that you’ll ask.

    On average, a large breakfast will run about $2.00, lunch $2.50 and dinner about $4.00.

    Down here, if you walk away from the table hungry, it’s your own fault.

    Another tip… if the menu has tassels the food is overpriced.

    That good night.. “hug” is directly proportional to the amount spent on supper. If that place across the street has a drive-thru.. that hug you were hoping for.. might be a handshake.
