People at the Caribou Coffee in Woodbury talk about three things:
-how much stuff costs (especially houses, and in particular other peoples' houses)
-their kids' drama in school ("... and then Susan said that the teacher had been losing students' assignments and claiming that they'd never turned them in! And Brian has been telling me that he's turned everything in but his grade report showed some things missing, so I'm going to take this up with the principal!")
They also like to sit right next to me and say loudly to one another, "Shhhhhhhh! She's studying!" And then talk loudly to each other for the next two hours.
Ah well, somehow I still get more done here than most other places.
