For the second week in a row, I am on the Panera wifi trying to get some work done. For the second week in a row I am sitting at a corner table so I can use an electrical outlet. For the second week in a row I am getting strange looks every few seconds from parties at a nearby table as though I should not be sitting here.

What? What?? I am working! I am not a sloppy eater and I am neither take two looks goregous or freak show ugly. I am working! I have permission to sit at this table and will continue to do so! What do you want and why you looking at me!?!

Will I do it a third week and chance the dirty looks again? You bet. Now it's science.

Yeah, I used to get looks at Starbucks all. the. time. allthetime (I just loved that when you wrote it the other day). I've done the Panera thing too and received the stare. Weird, huh?

Of course, now at SBux, I'm rarely ever the only person on a notebook so I have no idea why they're still staring.

I get the same looks when I go into Panera with my children.

I've never had this problem. So it must be your Panera. The two I attend have lots of people working like this.

nxnqfoob: A vanity license plate intending to mean: "Nixon is a fucking bastard", but not quite succeeding at conveying that message.

BTW: I think I'm going to do this most times I post on your site from now on.

I think that it has something to do with the corner table, like it's a mob meeting place and I didn't know it.

Scott, please comment often. Your comments are like a hilarious game of Balderdash.

pvomxo--Eh, I have nothing for you now.
