Plug Trouble

Ann has the car today so I ventured down to the Tazza D'Oro, since it's within walking distance.

I hadn't paid much attention to this before, but I found a flaw in the laptop-friendliness of the cafe: the outlets have wall plates on them, which creates just enough of a buffer around the actual point of entry that my MAC power supply can't enter the outlet and support its own weight. (It actually might be able to use the bottom outlet in the setup I'm sitting beside, but there's a string of Christmas lights plugged in there.)

Accidental oversight, design choice or subtle hint that laptop users shouldn't set up camp for hours on end? You decide...
