I had to create a whole new category for this one. Did you know that sitting in your car outside of a coffee shop that has unsecured wi-fi access is a felony? This poor bloke (the word “bloke” courtesy of Dave, who’s got me in an English mood after his “rubbish” comment) didn’t know that either.
OK, It kind of makes sense when you think through it though. Let’s say the coffee shop had a table set up out front with a box of oranges on it with a sign that reads “Free oranges for coffee shop customers”. Technically, if you walk up and take an orange without first having bought a cup of coffee, you’re stealing. But a felony??? Come on. My argument would’ve been that I am a coffee shop customer – I bought a cup of coffee there just last week. I’ve spent money there – I’m a customer. It doesn’t say anything about being a customer in the last, oh, twenty minutes or so now does it? I can only come to two conclusions:
1) This guy had an ultra crappy lawyer.
2) I really should’ve gone to law school instead of going into telecom.
This one gets the Bunny Pancake award:
