Do restaurants at your place come with free Wifi/wireless internet connection for their customers?
What sort of restaurants are they? (Family restaurants/coffeeshops/chain restaurants/fast food outlets/etc.)
What do you think of people who sit for hours on end with their laptops in these restaurants? (They have food & drinks on their table, so they're not in the restaurant just for the wireless connection. There's also lots of empty tables in the restaurant at all times, so they're not preventing other customers from coming in and eating at the restaurant.)
If you work at one of these restaurants, how do you feel when a customer/customers use the wireless connection for hours at a time?
I'm asking because I'm on "vacation" at my home state right now, where I don't have an internet account/connection at home. So 2-3 times per week I go to different restaurants (Coffee Bean, Starbucks etc., I'm at a Kenny Rogers Roasters
right now) and sit for an average of 4 hours to use their free wireless connection, which they advertise at their shop entrances with the Wifi logo, that's how I know they offer free Wifi here. At places like Starbucks/Coffee Bean I don't stand out as much since lots of other people go there mainly for their wireless connection as well, but here at Kenny Rogers Roasters, I've been here for 4 hours now and I'm still the only customer with a laptop. :X
There's no tipping culture here in my country, if that changes anything. We get charged 15% of taxes & service charge in the bill instead.
