This photo is from a restaurant in Malaysia.
Talk about a social statement on so many levels!
Can you even imagine this being put in a restaurant in the US. There would be people up in arms.

I love how it doesn't tell you not to give money to beggars, but it tells you why you shouldn't.
I have to agree. It's very simple, but it's deep and true.


I love the little last sign, pretty sure almost all of ATS would be paying RM10 more. (yes myself included)


That sign that prices change based on customers attitude, Man O' mighty, I bet a lot of people working black Friday wish they could have
that sign!

I suppose people are giving some money to beggars outside instead of spending all of it inside.

Or bothering paying customers while they try to order.
Either way, I think they are sharing their answer to these social questions:

Should you give beggars money directly?
Does giving money to beggars directly hurt them more than help?
Do we cause more begging due to our own behavior?

After visiting Seattle, (and some other big cities) I'd say, No, Yes, Yes

Odd question, but why would a restaurant in Malaysia have a sign in English?

I had the same thought! Why in English and only in English?

I love it. They were definitely written by someone who speaks fluent English.

My favorite is the last one as well.

Reminds me of a popular restaurant in Portland called Montage. It’s a Cajun joint with amazing food. All seating is communal. When they pour the water, they purposely spill. When you order a mussel or oyster shooter, they literally shout it to the kitchen from across the restaurant. They literally have the attitude of I don’t GAF. Great place, strongly recommend eating there if you find yourself in Portland.

They speak a lot of English there, same with Singapore.

They also want to be a top tourist destination so my guess this sign might actually be for foreign visitors (Americans and Canadians etc.) that have a big heart for the homeless.

Must not be allowed to tell them to stay out.


Handing people money often isn't doing what is best.

That makes sense. I wish more here had those signs up.

Yet that seems to be the answer to everything here, and we wonder why nothing changes and only gets worse!

I’ve seen places with signs similar. If the food and atmosphere is good enough, people get a kick out of it.

G’s Burger in Cornville, AZ has them. And quite possibly makes the best burgers I’ve ever had.

Mooney’s Irish Pub in Sedona, AZ has them as well. Great late night pub if you’re in the area.

Both are huge locals destinations.

It's directed to those speaking the English....and the first thing the English speakers might do is to get 'ratty' over the sign..thus the whole sign becomes applicable to them in it's entirety.

I'd give it a pass for somewhere more salubrious.

Lots of people don't feel the need to work to obtain things. Ya know that is a waste of a person's free time.

Who would eat at a restaurant in Malaysia is the bigger concern but I suspect panhandlers around their place are like feral cats. Don't feed them and they go away.

Whoever wrote those signs is an erudite native English speaker, likely British (because of arse.)

I know a number of Pub Landlords that would love to put this sign up behind their Bars.

I love it! Takes guts.
Our city puts up signs about panhandling saying they have programs to feed and shelter the homeless.
I see people with signs standing next to the city's signs.
I don't carry cash anymore so they never get anything from me. But my husband is a softy and I guess by these measures an idiot. ( someone had to keep him off the streets) He will turn his pockets inside out looking for change. To his credit he is also cheap and wont contribute bills of any denomination.

True, every person I ever met from singapore spoke english.
I lived in NYC so that happened more than you'd think.

I gave you a star just for working the word salubrious into the conversation.
Does the place look unhealthy to you?

I totally would. Actually the best soup I've ever had in my life was made by a Malaysian cook.
When I saw this place the first thing I thought of was Seinfield and the Soup Nazi.
The soup is so good, they can insult you, be mean to you, and you'd still come back for more.

It's been about 27 years since i've had that soup and I still remember it, and nothing has held a flame to it yet.
It was one of those soups you didn't really want to know what was in it, but it was so absolutely delicious you didn't care.
