♫ Let’s get jiggy with it! ♫

on November 17, 2014

I’m not too sure if you’re aware of it yet, but there is a growing phenomena out there. Once you become aware of it, you’ll be searching for it everywhere. At the moment it seems to be only confined to coffee shops, but it’s only a matter of time before it spreads. What am I talking about?
Yes, that’s it. Is there anything else more annoying whilst you’re trying to work? At least with people yakking away on their mobiles you can plug in your music. But what to do with a jiggling leg or foot in your peripheral vision? Once spotted you just can’t ignore it. Now, I know it’s my choice to write in coffee shops, so I should just stop my moaning and put up with it – right? Wrong! 🙂 Why can’t people just sit still? I have been writing in coffee shops in New York, Toronto and Dallas in the past couple of weeks and it seems all-pervasive.
There was a gentleman sitting next to me today who was jiggling his legs so much I’m surprised he didn’t spill his coffee. I suppose this goes to prove how intolerant I am of other people’s habits, but surely I’m not alone – or am I? I’d be interested to know what you think 🙂

    Yes it’s spread to the UK – a terrible affliction. Thx for raising awareness of jingly legs…

    It’s likely all of the caffeine 🙂

    Restless Leg Syndrome or Dancer’s Knee is most likely the cause of your irritation! A real medical condition/affliction! Certainly not helped by caffeine…….. Certainly capable of inducing writer’s block?! Suggest the culprits choose decaf and seek medical advice! Happy writing…….. 🙂


Thanks a lot for your interest in my post, I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
