Now I frequent Burger King on days when I eat out because they offer free wi-fi. I was going to go talk to a friend who happened to be working at Burger King. He was nice enough to find me the booth that had the power outlet. I hate being the guy that wanders around looking underneath all the booths trying to find the one with a power outlet. I talk to my friend and order my food. I fire up my laptop and search networks. I get an open network called something like MARINANET – I thought this was odd since they are normally named BKSTORENUMBERXXXX, but I attached to the network. It seems this was a pay network, granted it didn’t seem to be operated by Burger King, if I had to guess it was run by the marina just down the street. I was going to be going by the Vermilion library after eating so there was no way I was going to be paying 19.99 for one day of access (I’ve only done that once, when I was consulting and I needed it then and I expensed it).
This Burger King seems to want to buck tradition and not offer wi-fi. Very very annoying. FInally – their fries were stale too.
