This is not your # !!@!% Private Office!
My friend and I were sitting at the counter, eating breakfast and talking. This jerk actually came up to us and told us to "be quiet," because he was working! He said, "You know, this IS a bookstore!" His words.
I politely kept my temper and told him this was a bookstore and cafe and meeting place and toy store and so much more. It is all that, what it is NOT is a library or private office. I pointed toward the library and told him it was "that way, down the block." He just walked away. I felt uncomfortable the rest of the time there and was hesitant to talk. My friend was mortified, she was very embarrassed. This shouldn't happen. Are people supposed to eat breakfast in silence so other people can work? On a Sunday, yet?
These moochers are plentiful at the bookstore and other gathering spots where they can mooch on wifi, the bathroom, electricity and free office space. They will keep doing it as long as they get away with it. Buying one bottle of water in four hours does not entitle them to control the place.
Does the Bookstore still have the "no dogs" sign? How about another sign, one that says, "This is not a library or your private office. People will be conversing, sometimes loudly."
In the past we have had Bed Race meetings in the Bookstore with 30 people present or more. What would this moron do then?
