So What If I Have To Go To The Bathroom?
Bedouin workers Unite! I set up at home daily because it's easy and cheap. I had a noon deadline o meet today and woke up at 9:00 a.m. with nothing done. Therefore I'm at my kitchen table in my PJs. But if I had it together, I'd love to be out and about meeting my deadlines from my favorite coffee shop.
So you get to the coffee shop, you set up your laptop, cell phone, headphones, voice recorder, power cord, etc. Then you suck down the necessary evil as I call it, your coffee. Then you suddenly have the urge to go potty pretty bad. So what do you do?
I love Slashfood for bringing up the age old question. Will you watch my stuff? I used to always go to this one free wifi coffee shop in Scottsdale, called In The Raw. I highly recommend it! You can bring your laptop and your dog. While working there, I never thought twice about leaving my laptop unattended. I even grew up in that neighborhood, so while I was nervous, I never had any doubts.
A couple weeks ago in Flagstaff, at Late For The Train on San Francisco Street, I didn't know the people or the area as I was traveling, so I waited until I was done to go to the bathroom with my totally packed up laptop bag. Coffee is a stimulant, you know, so you're always going to have to "go" when you work in a coffee shop. So what is a girl to do? (Or guy).
