Hey dude, you’re not gonna believe this!
So there’s this coffeeshop in Singapore, right?
Selling plain water for 60 cents and ice water for 80 cents, now how crazy is that?
Customers are complaining about it being too expensive.
I just read about it in the Shin Min Daily, it’s making quite a buzz, bro.
Pricey Water: A Kopi Shop Dilemma
Now, Mr. Tan, a 67-year-old retiree, felt like something was off with these water prices.
He was complaining that the kopi shop was too expensive.
In the article, he stated that the price of plain water at 60 cents and ice water at 80 cents is just not reasonable.
It’s like, dude, seriously?
Neighbourhood Affordability and Local Needs
Ahhh, there are those who think that the price of the drinks should be lower, right?
Like Mr. Zhang, a 45-year-old engineer, said that coffeeshop prices should be affordable and controlled for the neighbourhood.
For some residents and elderly folks, these high prices can be a burden, you know what I’m saying?
Quality vs. Cost
But on the flip side, there’s like this 28-year-old masseuse, Belle, who thinks the coffeeshop’s tea drinks taste pretty good.
So she doesn’t mind paying a little extra.
It’s like, they say you get what you pay for, so maybe it’s not all bad?
Kopi Shop’s Explanation
Still, there’s this coffeeshop manager, Mr. Lee, who said that they had no choice but to raise prices because of their business costs, like rent, utilities and staff.
Customers sometimes only focus on the price hike, but they don’t realise it’s because the shop’s costs are going up too, you know?
Actionable & Practical Takeaways
- If you find your local coffeeshop too expensive, compare the prices before it hits your wallet.
- Consider the quality of the drinks and how much you’re willing to pay for it.
- Talk to or give feedback to the shop owners to let them know about your concerns.
So there you have it, folks. Pricey water at coffeeshops.
But like life sometimes, you’ve got to roll with the punches, right?
It’s a complicated issue, and there’s no easy answer.
Now tell me, what do you think about these water prices?
Would you pay that much for just a cup of plain or ice water?
