Hoggin' the Seats

Seats in Starbucks seem quite scarce
‘Cause laptop users hog ‘em.
Dirty looks won’t make them move – 
Perhaps it’s time to flog ‘em.

Sitting in a precious seat
For hours seems quite piggy,
Even if they’re doing work
Or tryin’ to get jiggy.

Other people want to sit
When sippin’ brews or snackin’;
No one has the nerve to ask
Those gluttons to get packin’.

Selfishness today appears
To be the status quo.
Perhaps a Starbucks laptop charge
Just might be apropos.

    Hear - hear. I think some of those folks sit there all day long. OK during slack time but not around meal times. Love the poem

    True, quite a few people are doing it. I would sit there sipping my frappuccino then move on. I think they may not have Wifi at home. Great poem, Ilene. Enjoyed!

    That describes the situation spot on. It's great how you gave so much action on seat hogs. How about a Wifi blocking latte?
