Getting my car fixed

So my O2 sensor on my car's been bad for almost a year now, and my check engine light's been on since. It's not really a big deal, but I need to get it done sometime. So as of right now, I'm at a Starbucks across the street of the car repair, passing away the time (2-3 hrs, according to the mechanic) with a laptop. Starbucks uses T-mobile Wi-Fi Internet, and their daily price is $10. What's up with that? But I guess $10 is worth me not being bored for the next 2-3 hrs, I see it as an "entertainment cost", in the same category as shooting pool for a few bucks an hour. I guess the "daily Internet pass" is probably geared towards people who need it occasionally, like me getting my car fixed, or someone taking business/personal trips and need Internet for a day or two. They DO offer monthly rates for $30, I'm guessing that's for people that live in T-Mobile Wi-Fi zones, or travel frequently.

Enough about that, more posts coming up real soon due to my boredom at Starbucks.
