An excellent idea to encourage politeness – Not the Quality Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day..” Motivation is like food for the brain. You cannot get enough in one sitting. It needs continual and regular top-ups”.
I saw an interesting story in the news about a cafe owner in Nice,Cote D’Azur, France who is offering cheaper prices customers who are polite when ordering. A cup of coffee is 7 euros, but if customers say “good morning” and also “please” then the price is only 1.40 euros. The idea is to make customers more polite and considerate. An excellent idea! Just look around the next time you are in a shop or cafe and see just how rude and unpleasant many customers can be. And even worse is when the continue to talk to somebody else on a mobile phone whilst making a purchase. Charge them more I say !!! Great idea by the French cafe owner, and one which I hope catches on.
A summer’s day in Croatia and the fishing village of Cavtat (southern Croatia) for the photo today. Croatia is also known as Hrvatska, and has a population of around 4.2 million. Tourism accounts for about 20% of the GDP, but unemployment is over 20% as well. It was formerly part of Yugoslavia, but became independent in 1991. It is now a member of the European Union. Interestingly, the money, called ‘Kuna’ was named after a small rodent!! The town in the photo today got its name from the latin language, Cavtat, or old city (civitas vetus). It is now a popular day trip destination for tourists.
