Once in a while, we get to thinking beyond what our next meal will be. Some things about food culture and the behaviors that surround it are really intriguing, no?
Nothing too deep here, just scratching the surface and wanna get your opinion on it.
So, how loud is too loud?
Scenario: You plan a peaceful trip to a local coffee shop with your book, diary, laptop, whatever. You shimmy into a comfy position in a comfy chair, sip your drink, nibble your scone, and settle in for some ME time. Then the guy on his laptop next to you starts playing the latest episode of a guns-blazing cop show without headphones and the empty table behind you fills up with a boisterous foursome of intellectuals debating health care, education, foreign policy, and the finer points of their fresh-baked croissants.
Pondering: What do you do when you’re surrounded by indiscreet, coffee talk?
We’d: Be annoyed. Very annoyed. Although a coffee shop isn’t exactly the library you should follow suit with those around you – and those around you are being quiet – to avoid being rude and disruptive. Most likely we wouldn’t say anything. Afterall, it IS a public place that ISN’T dressed with signs reading “Quiet, please”.
You’d: Leave your thoughts in the comments!
