Baddie and the Prisoner Chairs
Whether this is something country, or city-specific, or merely caused by the generally suspicious behaviour of students, university cafeteria outdoor chairs in Berlin are tied properly. With hose-like implements that are so thorough, they actually prevent you from sitting comfortably, as can be observed in the photos.
An additional surprising quality of these chains is their shortness, which makes them become artificially raised and create a sort of tallish fence around the table. This must be skipped with great agility on all occasions.
Say, for example, (you understand, entirely hypothetically) that your friend left to make a phone call and her sheets of paper are being scattered by a gust of wind? Not a problem, Baddie
will spring like a panther sit down, sipping on her coffee, and allow the nice guy at the next table to get up and collect them for her.
…Please don’t judge. It’s a survival technique. If you don’t believe me, see Baddie and the Breadcages…
