Stupid questions could be asked anywhere, and asking such in restaurants is no exception. The reason Tom's Diner in Denver, Colorado, is charging customers $0.38 for asking stupid questions.

The aim is to make customers think before asking something silly, patronising or downright stupid while at the restaurant, Metro reports.

Briefly.co.za gathers that a server at the restaurant simply identified as Sandra said the restaurant has a lot of silly things on its menu.

According to the restaurant's manager, Hunter Landry, one of the favourite questions he loves to charge for is: "Does the ice have any water in it?"

Making clarifications on how the charge works in practice, a former employee said servers do not put the charge on the bill unless a customer requests it.

The ex-employee said: "A lot of times, customers would be disappointed at not being charged for asking a stupid question so they’d ask and a server would then add it."
