Tulsa — A much heralded and artist friendly coffeehouse in the Cherry Street district of Tulsa, Oklahoma was invaded by a verbose and fulminating group of older men. The noise level reached so high that one witness said that she could no longer hear herself think.
The Coffeehouse on Cherry Street, normally a safehaven for aspiring artists and writers and an oasis for the caffiene-addicted, was abruptly transformed from a quiet and peaceful gathering of coffee drinkers into what one observer said “resembled a Friday night bingo tournament”. Daniel Sharples, a resident of Tulsa and frequent visitor to the shop, stated that he had never experienced such a troubling event in his entire life prior to today’s incident. “I am a writer, and usually I can deal with distractions in my given environment, but what happened in there was a cacaphony of sounds that I never want to hear again. The noise was penetrating, it ruined all my attempts to write today.”
All attempts to subdue the men failed, various customers glanced angrily at the congregation, others cleared their throats multiple times to convey that they were annoyed. At one point, the owner of the store walked over to the group and appeared to admonish them for their disruptive behavior, only to be observed moments later contributing to the noise. Sharples also said that other patrons were visibly frustrated and began to leave. The perpetrators appeared to be aloof of their actions, laughing and conversing about meaningless subjects, all the while well-intentioned artists tried to master their craft. “It eventually became too much, I just lost it and gathered all my belongings and left. I had planned on being there for a couple of hours but it ended up being just fifteen minutes!” continued Sharples. When asked if he would return to the coffeehouse, Sharples said that he would have to think cautiously about it before going back.
It is believed that the aforementioned group of men have departed from the coffeehouse, but no one interviewed knew if the men would return.
