Quote:Have you ever been asked to leave a business for not buying anything?
I have. When I was a teenager, we used to try to hang out places without buying stuff. I was asked to leave. And I didn't wait for them to call the cops.
Quote:I've seen people told to leave fast food establishments for just using the free wi-fi or using it for a meeting. I though nothing of it.
Quote:I'm just trying to see if this is a normal thing or not. General curiosity.
I can't say I have, but I can only think of one time where I would have been in a place for a couple of hours without buying anything. I met with someone else to go over a project we were working on. We were probably there for a couple of hours, I don't think either of us bought anything and we were not disturbed.
So when say this sort of thing would happen when you were a teenager, how long would you be hanging out before you were asked to leave? Do you think it was ever for less than five minutes?
Shoot, I don't remember. I think it was a pub and none of us had money for a drink. We might have even had money but didnt want to use it. The owner probably didnt like the idea of us just hanging out. To be honest, it was such a non-event I hardly remember.
