When your waiting with friends on a cool but nice day, its not that bad of a wait. The bus stops near here, and its a lot better than running out at the last second to catch the bus. The deli supplies nutrients so no one is hungry.
Often people would sit on the porch for entertainment. Inside its dark and warm, outside is cool and bright. People from the different rooms would come down and chat, and you would really get to know your neighbors. As for me, I would be the one inside, knowing I couldn't leave because people are blocking the entrance.
