I’m sitting in this coffee-shop, Lovers & Madmen (pictured above, on a previous day), doing paperwork. Here’s the scene:
There are these five college-aged girls that have walked in separately, all of whom know each other. They have come to study/write a paper for the same class, it seems. Their faces are currently buried in their respective laptops.
They have each taken up a table by themselves (one has taken residence at a four-person table). Two have have purchased nothing, one has brought in their own lunch (the shop tries to be very strict about their no outside food policy).
Looking around, I just noticed there are no more tables available, and I just watched two separate potential customers walk in, look for a free table to sit at, and walk out when they saw there were none. Between the five of them, there are 10 possible free seats others could use if these girls sat together.
And as I end this, they have taken a study break to turn in their chairs and loudly proclaim–to their girlfriends at the separate tables around them–gossip about boys (you would never believe what Chris just blatantly posted on Facebook, not even trying to hide it! The nerve!).
Chris (whoever you are), you might want to block this girl. She’s out for your blood.
