Coffee Shops

Have you noticed whether it is a big name or independant coffee shop with free WiFi they both have two main customers in common the students and the silver surfer both after the free WiFi but most of the other customers differ slightly you have some that use both you have those that only use the big name and you have those that only use the indie ones I have my own theory on this 1) those that use both just like coffee no matter the cost. 2) those that use the big name purely because of that oh they have lots of stores they must be good. 3) those that use the small indie ones reckon you get better value for your money and friendlier staff. I however tend to disagree with the second two and fall into group 1 and use both because I like coffee and you get good and bad staff in both. These are my own observations and opinions.

Fate and her minions

Once again Fate and her minions have conspired against me being able to get out and about as I would like to take photos in the snow the minions I speak of are from jolly old England Arthur Itis a.k.a Joint mangler his American cousin Bronc Hitis a.k.a Windpipe wheezer and French Canadian Deeky Teeker a.k.a the Heart stopper and last but not least C. Oldweather the lord of snow and chill winds so once again when normally I would have lots of snowy sunrises and landscape photos I have had to content myself with photos of my back garden.

View from a coffee shop (part 2)

Then we have the men these are a completely different breed to the women lets start with the most obvious the middle aged man smartly dressed clutching a portfolio case as if it might escape and attack someone all the while looking around both outside and inside before deciding I have come up with 2 reasons for this behaviour 1) should I have a sneaky coffee before going back to work and tell them I got caught in a traffic jam 2) this is my favourite he has lost his job but has not told his wife yet so he is checking to see if any of her friends are around. Then we have the obvious student with that many peircings he looks like a walking jewellery store a satchel hanging over their shoulder checking the coins they have to see if they have enough for a couple of the cheapest drinks so they do not look like total freeloaders as they use the free wi-fi. Then we have the elderly gents and their other half having a treat and a rest while waiting for their bus. Finally we have the male and females like me the daydreamers and the curious just sitting watching the workd go by and letting our imaginations run wild with out ideas and dreams. These were my views from a coffee shop hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed the lattes while I was writing them cheers.

View from a coffee shop (part1)

Well peepssitting here having a peppermint latte watching the world drift by and as the diffeent people pass trying to give them a job that matches tge way they look for example a middle aged woman tidily dressed with her hair in either a bun or pony tail I would say was either a school teacher or some type of office worker self confident but if annoyed a vitriolic tongue and then you have the unmistajable mothers meeting all sitting drinking their skinny cappuccinos and eating brown toast discussing how little Johnny/Jane are getting on at school and then the bitchy comments about others not in their clique such as did you see the way such & such was dressed they looked like mutton dressed as lamb all the while their pre-school angels are running wild disturbing otherpeople with out them even saying stop that it is naughty or come here and stop making a noise, then you have my favourites the mothers who try to make themselves look as young as their daughters some can pull it off but others look like Rupaul or Lily Savage on a bad day end of part one next we have the men.
