Saturday, October 13, 2007

This complaint is the toughest I have ever written about. Even those complaints I have written about in other venues. The Barnes and Noble Book Store in Boise, Idaho has long been a favorite place for me to go when I get cabin fever yet need to get some work done.

I don't remember the exact year but it was around 1991 plus or minus a year when they built the Barnes and Noble Book Store on Milwaukee Street near the Town Square Shopping Center. Almost from the beginning whenever I got tired of working from my RV I would head down there and have coffee and lunch and work away on my laptop.

Well, now that it is 2007, and after just returning to the Boise area after my 1 year 12 state tour I tried once to go down to the Barnes and Noble Bookstore to get some work done and one of the employees came up and said they have a 2 hour limit for sitting in the cafe area. They said I could set in their community area if I wanted to.

So I moved into their community area. None of the tables were near a power outlet. Those were reserved for the big plush easy chairs not the table and chair areas. This one time I tried their community area I was surrounded by small children (as cute as they were) listening to a story being told. Then a photo shoot with some sort of Winnie the Pooh with a person inside.

Needless to say I am greatly disappointed. Fortunately, I am able to work to my heart's content at Carolyn's Wild West Bakery and Espresso in Meridian, Idaho which is also my favorite coffee shop, and has been since 1999. Thank you Carolyn!

Anyone else out there like me who needs to get away from the office because of cabin fever or whatever and you live near Meridian, Idaho then I suggest you visit Carolyn's Wild West Bakery and Espresso in Meridian on Main Street just on the north side of the railroad tracks.

Or if you happen to know of some other places that are friendly to us mobile telecomputing type workers, then by all means leave a comment here with your recommended Mobile Computer Worker friendly coffee shop. Please only suggest places that serve coffee. That is a minimum requirement.

P.S. As a full time traveler I routinely visit Barnes and Noble Book Stores all over the country. Just in the past twelve months I have been to Barnes and Noble's in Las Vegas NV. Phoenix AZ, San Antone TX, Beuomont TX, Lake Charles LA, New Orleans LA, Jackson MS, Memphis TN, and Denver CO. In none of those did I encounter such a negative policy as I did right here where it all started for me in Boise, Idaho.
