When I was going through my Divorce....yes. I wasn't (and still am not) into the bar scene, and yet, I had to get out of the house..

Its usually younger kids that sit there for hours, and its really no big deal, its better for them to do that, than getting into trouble.

I'd love to do that, but am not into coffee. If only they sold beer at such places.

Yay! I have a label now! :D I am very much a diner rat, and have been for a number of years. I'll be very sad if I ever give up my life-style. It's such a great escape from the 'real world' and it's way cheaper than drugs. :D

Not any more, I was in high school though.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 1/11/03 - 5:04:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope never was, probably never will be. I'm on the internet instead most of the time.

I rarely go to diners

This question made me laugh... I was indeed a diner rat when I was in high school, along with many of my friends...From time to time in college I'd still go there if I had a lot of studying to do. Now I go back for breakfast every so often and am depressed to find that many of the people I saw there in high school have not yet graduated from diner rat phase...

No, well I have done it a couple of times with some crazy friends.
11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 9/30/06 - 3:41:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but I do go at least once a month usually.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 3/13/07 - 8:07:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but I knew people who were just like that.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 3/13/07 - 8:38:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
When I was a teen, me and a group of friends would sit at Country Kitchen for hours and suck down pots of coffee. We'd get fries or something too, so they wouldn't kick us out.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 3/13/07 - 8:38:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I usually have coffee after my meal, but I don't stay for hours just for the coffee.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 3/13/07 - 8:44:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but there is a coffee shop here with a basement where I like to go and camp for a while while doing work. It's away from the distractions of home, plus it's cheap and guilt-free to buy a cup or two, then hole up in the basement where they can't see me.

No, I'm not.
