Pranksters at Starbucks

Some places you go, like Starbucks and Panera, they offer wireless internet access. People are always showing up with their laptops, trying to appear that they really have something more important to do than just check their e-mail.

Some guys brought their whopping desktop PCs complete with CRT monitors with them to a Starbucks, just to be funny.

I was amused.

Here's the story.


  1. That's FUNNY!

    I was just at Starbucks last night where this guy was hogging one of the only two nice padded chairs with his laptop for hours. So not only did he have the ability to surf the web, but he had one of the most comfortable seats in the house. Yeah, the rest of us with our stuffy, old books were shooting him some dirty looks. And he had one of those, "Why are you looking at me? Don't you know that I'm too important to be looked at?" expressions on his face.

    BTW, I was in Starbucks today (yeah, I know I sound like an addict... it was for a ministry-related meeting) and they have a new way of brewing their black iced tea with sweetener. I was skeptical, so they let me try it for free. And, unbelievably, it was even BETTER!! I feel like they just upped the crack purity on the street from 5% to 10%...

  2. Is that not normal? That explains a lot.
