Never been in a Starbucks, and don't own a laptop.

I guess I always thought that that was the draw of coffee houses.  Go in buy coffee, and sit and surf.

Who the *fudge* would pay 6 bucks an hour to do that?

I have a Starbucks in my building. I hate them. Devil

Being able to use a coffee machine does not make you a barista you *fudge*tard!

I found that out the hard way the other day...I had planned to get some "crucial" work done involving plagerizing a bunch of stuff off the intertubes, and then getting some emails out  while "on the road" during a 2hr period that was sandwiched in between two chautauquae on the schedule.

So I figured I'd pop right into a Starbucks and get it all done there.

OMG!! 

I actually went up to the counter and said, "Hold it! Am I missing some top secret password? I thought the Intertube connection was part of the deal with the overpriced cappuccino?"

Lemme get this straight- they have the balls to charge $4 for a simple, and slightly burnt tasting, 12oz cappuccino, then put a tip jar on the counter, and on top of all of that still charge for wi-fi access?

LOL  That kinda sums up my thoughts.  I guess that's why I assumed the wifi was free.

That's excellent.  Or, if you feel more harmed personally and feel like pointing a finger with a broad brush, you can go with the more inflammatory, yet less satirical:

The Starbucks nearest my old house always had free wifi.  More than once, I parked outside and computed in the car to get something out via email by midnight.
