Our local costa opens at 5am every day. DH and I go about 7am each Sunday morning for toast and a coffee before walking the dog; theres generally about a dozen regulars there and its a lovely relaxed way to start the weekend. Last week, a foreign guy about 4 tables away sat watching a programme on his phone, at full volume! After about 20 minutes of listening to the foreign language film, we left and it really spoiled my day! Why on earth would you think it was acceptable to listen to something so loud everyone in the place could hear it clearly? Buy some headphones for heavens sake

The amount of people who do this on the train is unreal.

Paddington Station Starbucks is the local interview place when I come back from London and some interveiws are very cringeworthy!

We went into a Starbucks in Boston USA and there was not one table free every single table was taken up by someone on a Laptop.

As RickT mentioned .. when people discuss sickness and attendance complete with names, a child going to court, government white papers , EU exit proposals ( all heard on trains recently) NHS spreadsheets ... just because you don't think you know anyone does'nt mean they don't know what you are talking about !

I think its time that all places had a Wifi cap to enable genuine customers to eat and drink their purchases.

Yes this is one of my biggest pet hates! Especially when solo and your foods getting cold and people are just sitting there not eating! Get your food/drinks BEFORE you sit down! 😤

I think the modern cafe actually encourages this type of clientele and use of their facilities. They market themselves to professionals who are prepared to spend a daft amount on a mediocre coffee.
So I dont think this will change at all.
Simple answer is to go somewhere else with decent coffee and doesn't tolerate this type of thing.

Trouble is if people are struggling to get free tables already, then people in the queue will grab a free one while someone else stays in the queue to get their coffee etc.

Doesnt make it easy on everyone in the queue in front of the person buying the coffee etc, but its easy to see why it happens.
