Just been reading about a couple of chippies in Bruges that offer locals a discount on their bag of chips. Apparently a tourist demanded a 10% reduction too, but was told no way.
We're used to two tier pricing in Asia where tourist usually pay more compared to locals. I have no problem with this, we are guests and it is only right and fair we cough that bit extra.
But this rule is not the same. It is a loyalty scheme aimed to reward the locals and students, which is more than reasonable. Why should they pay the same as someone on a day trip and only buying frites once?

PS: That said, paying 7€ for a bag of fried spuds? That's over six quid. Bog right off.
