Where Is the Strangest Place You've Seen WiFi?

Where Is the Strangest Place You've Seen WiFi?

While there are some people around Sugar HQ that have what Yum calls a "minor French fry problem," I'm not one of them. That might be the reason why it took me so long to notice the McDonald's across the street from the office offers a WiFi connection.

Once considered a luxury, WiFi is a near staple at this point. It's standard in American hotels, airports, new Virgin America planes and pretty much every other coffee shop, library and imaginable place with electrical outlets. But when is enough enough? I can't imagine sitting down in a McDonald's long enough to want to check my e-mail, let alone blog or do any kind of serious work.

I want to know, where is the strangest place, most unexpected place you've noticed a WiFi connection?

Laundromat which I love, especially if the tvs aren't working and there's also this tiny hole in the wall cafe with a table and two seats only. Only two people can sit inside but they have wifi!

I would love it while I camp. The last time I went camping, I needed to do some work at 5pm on Friday. Seriously. I don't work on Fridays so I just left, hoping that there was free wifi around that I could just log on, run my reports, and be done. However, there wasn't any anywhere. I had to pay $6 at a Starbucks in town to do my 15 min of work. Oh well. I could've driven another 20-40 miles to a reststop. Along I-90 in WA state there are wifi hotspots along the road...however, I do no know if they're free.

My mechanic's shop has free WiFi. Great idea, since it always seems to take longer than expected to get your car fixed.

I think it's funny when there is WiFi at bars. Are you really going to check your email while doing shots?!
