I'd order another coffee.
I'd say 'I'm staying, but I'll be quiet. I'd offer to buy them a coffee'. I'd then order two coffees, a toasted sandwich, a cake and three cookies to take home for the kids for later, whilst pointing to them saying they would pick up the bill before they left.

Brighton factually.....

I smell bullshite, for the sake of a look at me moment on twatter or whatever.

1: Usually you would sit opposite someone at a coffee shop, your laptop would be facing towards the person using it, so no issue.

just had a quick look at her profile, she/her describe themselves as
Independent designer, writer, trend spotter, & casual archivist (she/her).

So bullshite story, never happened and even if it did, you tell them to pay me for the inconvenience (which they wont) or feck off.

Is trend spotter a thing ?
I could do that, although I would have change work locations, I fear Lancing could hold me back in my new career.

Well, like a lot of stories, including, ahem, ones I tell sometimes, it probably started off as true. I've been joined at a table in a crowded Costa by someone who very politely asked me if I minded them joining a work Zoom call. I said no, and they joined their call, barely saying anything on it. Looking back on it, I might have mused to myself what if they'd spread a load of papers across the table and were speaking loudly, possibly to encourage me to leave. That's how plenty of anecdotes start life, as exaggerations of the truth.
