Pro Tip: Creating Your Own DIY Standing Desk at a Neighborhood Cafe Is the Definition of Uncool

A Bernal neighbor snapped this rather unfortunate use of a DIY “standing desk” setup at Cafe 78 in La Lengua this afternoon.

Pro Tip for all Digital Warriors: Putting a chair on top of a table is never okay. When in doubt, please consult Aaron James’s Theory of Assholes, and conduct an honest self-assessment.

    haha! I worked at restaurants for years, and frankly, this made me laugh. Maybe the guy has a really bad back and was just trying to improvise. I think the only thing that would make him a butthead is if he didn’t wipe down his table. He actually takes up less room standing. ;)

    Oh my god. I see this guy doing this all the time when I go into Cafe 78, I’ve had the same thought, but didn’t want to bug him. Ew. Sticky table feet on the table where we put our food. Yuck.

    Hilarious! BTW you can buy small standing desks so you don’t have to do this! The Stand Steady is a nice one ( http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C2W8BVO ) and there are others that may fold to be more portable. Still laughing….

    High. Larious. What a tool.
    If he’s too cheap to create an effective work station at, say, HIS OFFICE, he’s probably also way too cheap to call his chiropractor.

    Btw, Bernalwood: I’m loving your new snarky side!

    Thumbs up for acknowledging that La Lengua is La Lengua, and not Bernal Heights!
