My gripe against kids at Starbucks

I dropped by this Starbucks branch to hang out for a while and enjoy my Signature Hot Chocolate. I was also hoping to charge my phone as Starbucks usually have some table with power outlets.

This branch is quite spacious but, on the Saturday afternoon I was there, it was quite crowded.  Most of the seating area are at the second floor, with an open-air seating outside.

I didn’t get to charge my phone because a group of youngsters hogging the tables with the power outlets left their laptops and items on the table (so no one else can use the tables) even when they went out to the open-air seating area for some smokes. This is a growing trend that’s becoming a cause for concern, particularly in Singapore, but is apparently present here as well.

I have nothing against kids hanging out to study or work on group projects but they shouldn’t treat tables as their private property, especially when the place is full and they are smoking outside anyway.
