After the Schueberfouer has ended, the official season of “close the f*cking door” officially starts.
Bar, restaurant and cafe customers are being warned about on the spot fines for people who leave the door open after entering or exiting a premises.
Fines can be up to €250 for anyone who leaves the door open or holds the door open for their friend who is still chatting for more than 30 seconds.
The public are advised to remain vigilant and to report any unnecessary door opening behaviour.
Outrage erupted from the clientele of a city centre bar today as a man trying to act considerately, held the door open for over a minute, while his girlfriend said good bye to some friends.
The incident happened just after lunch, after the man’s girlfriend started talking to some friends she bumped into just after finishing their meal.
As they had to leave to get back to the office, the man stood by the door and held it open in an act of selfish consideration while the rest of the clients froze.
“The feeling throughout the bar was one of absolute hatred and disgust,” said one of the clients. “We still hate him, even hours after.”
Bar visitors have been advised by the government not to be complete muppets duting the winter season.
