Recently an n integrity restaurant has become a hot topic which arouses a controversial debate. A man run a restaurant without any waiter and people who have dinner here can pay the bill as they want to, if the customer think this meal worth 50 Yuan, then he can put 50 Yuan in the box. However, as the owner keep losing money over 4 months, people begin to think this is the customer’s integrity issue, while I can’t agree with it.
In the first place, the restaurant didn’t name the price to each dish, which means the owner let the customer evaluate the meal by themselves. That’s make sense that people pay the money for the meal is always lower than the owner’s expectation. Let along the one who don’t pay the bill, as everyone have different values, and most people have no idea about the cost of the dish, it is understandable that customer pay less money than the cost.
In the second place, the restaurant has on waiter at all which makes the cost lower than a regular restaurant. The customer have to help themselves to have rice and meals, also they need to wash the dish. It makes reasonable that customer pay less money than the owner expected.
To sum up, this is may not be the problem of integrity, but the way of running a restaurant. I believe most people had paid their bills, but they just pay it lower than the cost.
