Fanfiction and popular media have given me unrealistic expectations of coffee shops.
No, you don’t understand.
Coffee shops used to be wonderful. Before everyone had a screen to look at or needed a table near an outlet.
You would go there with your friends and sit on big plush couches to escape your parents or study for your finals. There were often cute men who did acoustic renditions of They Might Be Giants.
It wasn’t as expensive as shopping at the mall and you would feel very fancy holding your big Central Perk mug.
Damn Tumblr! Coffee Shops used to be great.
You could order s’mores to make at your table and once it closed, you went to the diner.
