Each of the last three shifts, I've had "customers" who order nothing but coffee and then sit forever. I don't understand. Tonight it was the gender indiscriminate coverall lady again, with her daughter and grandson. Last time they came in they ordered food; this time, just coffee and a soda. And they sat, stiffly, not really talking. The kid played some video game, the adults (who look like carbon copies of each other) sat. It was very odd.
I continue to be mystified as to why people would meet at a busy restaurant during the rush, and pay $2/cup for substandard coffee. Go to Starbucks. Go to Dazbog, it's right across the parking lot. Go to a park, or your own goddamn house. Go to a place that's designed for hanging out. This ain't it.
