Free Lunch? How ‘Bout Free Wi-Fi?

How can some people justify coming into local coffee shops and taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi (sometimes for several hours) without buying anything? Most of these places are local businesses trying to survive in a tough economy. Give them a break.

Also, I believe that bringing in food from outside into any restaurant or coffee shop is a health code violation. The owners, managers, and employees should enforce this.
