It's occurred to me as the weather's gotten colder that QFC is providing a valuable service with its little eating area adjacent to the Starbucks. Though it probably wasn't intended to be, it's become somewhere for homeless people to get in from the cold.
Consequently, I usually avoid sitting there now. The last time I did, my mom and I got a coffee and had just sat down when that homeless guy who wears the filthy red snowsuit showed up. The stench emanating from him was so bad we got up and left.
