non-friendly WIFI spot

The other night, I stopped at McDonald's Valero again to connect to the internet, hoping that the WIFI is up at that time. Good thing it was. I didn't order at once, looked for the manager and asked if the WI-FI is working. Lo and behold, it was.

I starved myself from being home at 3:30 in the afternoon, went out to have my glasses fixed and had my nails done and ate 4 pcs. of Master Siomai. I tried to sleep, gosh I tried, after watching coupla episodes of Diva from the internet, facebooking and chatting with *toot* and oh, I really couldn't get my eyes closed at 6pm!

I woke up at 10 in the evening(I didn't even know if I really fell asleep long) and fixed myself, sweating because of the everlasting sauna fever at home and outside.

I was thinking about having Starbucks as my first stop but darn, my 29 year old anaconda in my belly was shouting heavily that it was really on a hunger strike.

now a 1 pc fried chicken meal, I didn't even bother to start my laptop first :P

I turned my laptop on while eating and started enjoying their super fast WI-FI. It's really fast that I could multi-task forever..

Enjoying too much wasn't enough. I asked a crew if they have power outlets when I noticed that my battery is half full. I was really amazed to find out that they don't. This is so so not friendly spot.

I have been wi-fiing since then to other hot spots that offer free service and they have power outlets. This time, my work plans won't work anymore because anytime my battery will go dead.

phew... too much rants for the day. Best things in life are free they say, but being an expected commenter, overly-abusive and a freakin customer like me, free services have a catch.. this time, I was caught with an hour worklog for the week to complete it. (angry sweep)
