Has Anything Really Changed?

Nothing much really since I left.. except for more people complaining about the prices going up!

What really drew my attention though, is the changes in menus and prices in all the outing places.. and the attitude of people working there..

Ok maybe for some this is considered marketing, but for me, I personally see it as a very disturbing way, that would make me think twice before going to that place..
So after lunch, I went to meet with friends in one of the coffee and wireless internet places.. I ordered a small hot chocolate! Who can order more than that directly after having a big day3a meal..

So I was there to pay for my drink, when the cashier asked me.. Would you like any of our cakes with it.. NO
Do you like some marshmallows on top.. NO
Do you like to take another drink.. NO
Do you like to change the size.. NO
...
..
..
and the very last question was : Do you like to order water with your drink..
this is when I thought I can't take it anymore..

And .. well I don't really want to say what happened next!

    It is annoying how some places do that to increase revenue,drive ppl crazy..
    ..but I hope you only criticized the place's policy and didn't rough up the poor employee just for doing his job following instructions.
