I hate you, Starbucks

I went to Starbucks to study today. I paid the newly exorbitant price for a large cup of coffee. I sat down, opened up my laptop, and tried to pull up my budding Labor & Employment Outline.

What came up? A page saying "you can use our wireless service for $9.99 for the day, or $29.99 for a month."

To which I wanted to say something like this.

So I went down to campus, where I am studying in the campus library. Wireless free, parking not so much.

Strangely my work firewall tells me your sound effects are too mature for my young ears. Given the filename, I am not surprised.

This was on state street? Seems silly for them to do such a thing, considering you can go to, literally, any other cafe on state and get free internet. Might I suggest fair trade a few blocks up?

No, this was the Starbucks on the West side. I know that the State Street ones all have free wireless, but if I am going to go downtown, I may as well sit in a library with a nice big table.

The West side offered me the opportunity to not pay for parking.

They seriously charge that much in some locations? That's outrageous.

Starbucks is toying with coming to my community. I hope they don't.

Good for you for going to the library. :-)

Outlines. Sniff sniff. I actually miss law school. I even kinda liked finals time.
