Instead of suffering in the heat for no reason, we found a different cafe to study in that actually had a working air conditioner
When I was in college, I formed a study group among myself and a handful of other students from our school’s natural sciences department. Since we had a lot of exams in the sciences, it was extremely beneficial for us all to form a group to meet up after classes to discuss homework and upcoming tests. At first we met in a study room in the campus library, but we tended to prefer cafe settings instead. There was a great coffee shop right down the street from our college campus and that was our primary destination for our study meetings. We ordered coffee and always got discounts because we showed our student IDs from the school. To encourage students to use their cafe as a study destination, all students were given 10% off their purchases, regardless of the size. I loved the turkey paninis as well. Unfortunately, things started to go downhill when their indoor climate system started to fail. Instead of putting money into fixing their air conditioner, they just let it go altogether in hopes that their loyal customers would just deal with the uncomfortable indoor temperatures. Instead of suffering in the heat for no reason, we found a different cafe to study in that actually had a working air conditioner. We were sad to leave that one coffee shop that we loved for so long, but we weren’t going to attempt having our study meetings in hot indoor temperatures when there are other cafes in the city. The place we ended up using not only had a good air conditioner, but they were only one mile further away from our college campus than the previous coffee shop.
