Report: Actually, This Pod Reserved

WESTWOOD — In an unexpected turn of events, local YRL patron Simone Defford approached a group of students today in what witnesses could only describe as “a defiant act of protest.” “Um, sorry, I actually reserved this pod online for the next three hours,” said Defford, accosting the group seated at Pod 8 and including a half-hearted smile to defuse the high tension of the conflict. “If it helps, I saw a lot of open seats outside by Northern Lights, and they were all in direct sunlight so you’ll be able to see your laptop screen really well!” Witnesses at the scene report polite nods and minimal eye contact as the offending group unplugged their chargers and balanced notebooks, laptops, and coffee cups in their arms on their way to find a new table.
