Ever since Laura Maggi decided to start serving her cafe lattes in a skimpy outfit the lines to get in have being going out the street. Will that be a single espresso or a double?
Oh dear, there seems to be some degree of furor in one Italian town of late. Why you wonder? Let’s all walk over to Laura Maggi’s smashing cafe joint and find out…
dailymail.co.uk: After eight years running a bar, Laura Maggi suddenly found men beating a path to her door.
Not for the quality of her coffee and aperitifs, but because she had started appearing for work in highly revealing outfits.
Hundreds of male customers flocked there day and night, leaving their cars double parked in the surrounding streets.
Congestion became such a problem that the lady mayor announced she was considering an emergency bylaw to limit traffic in the area.
An emergency bylaw?? Why do I have the feeling such a law wont be very well received by half the local population? Flocking day and night? My my one can only imagine how wonderful Laura’s espressos must taste….
But in a sign that some of the local women have had enough of all the attention Laura is receiving (yes she has become a national celebrity) wives are now instituting a tough door policy. A door policy that basically instructs their husbands to never set foot inside Laura’s bar or expect to face uncomfortable consequences at home. Hmm, can anyone figure out why so many wives are up in arms with Laura’s little boite? Surely it can’t be because the espressos she ‘serves’ aren’t up to snuff?
Said Laura recently as a guest on one tv talk show:
‘I don’t see what the problem is – it’s just a bit of harmless fun.
‘If the guys come here what can I do?
‘I know I have upset the women but that’s not my problem.
‘It’s not my fault if guys want to come and have a drink in my bar.’
I agree Laure it’s not your fault and nor should it be your problem. But perhaps the other women in the town might come to like you again if you chose to put on an extra item of clothing whilst tending to your customers? After all you know what they say about modesty- it keeps one guessing…
On the walls of Le Cafe are pictures of Miss Maggi in a bikini on holiday.
She has 5,000 new friends on Facebook while a local poll found that 46 per cent of respondents said partners of her male customers should be ‘asking themselves why their partners prefer Laura to them’.
Well that might be a tricky question for any man to sit down and answer. As we have already suggested in the article perhaps the furor of the town could be assuaged if Laura chose to wear the rare item that doesn’t give it all away in one shot. But then again who am I to tell a successful cafe owner how to run her business? Which brings us to the local mayor, who coincidentally also happens to be a woman. Unlike Laura, Cristina Almici is not in the habit of cavorting in stark dressing. In fact not only has Cristina instituted a series of meetings to see how she can address the mayhem surrounding Laura’s bar (yes the traffic jams are quite serious…) she’s also demanded that her husband never set foot in Laura’s cafe ever again either.
Can anyone guess what kind of laws Mayor Cristina may hope to institute in the near future to bring relief to the crowded traffic streets?
