Stuart is a customer in a local greasy spoon café. He has been sitting at his table with his laptop for most of the day with one cup of coffee, which has lasted him for most of the morning. The waitress is fed up with him using the place at his convenience, so she demands he either orders food, or gives up the table for the lunch time rush. Once an argument ensues, Stuart seeks advice from Val, a shop-owner he has recently met on a dating app, a seemingly elegant woman with whom he begins to shares his grief concerning the impatient waitress. In return, Val shows interest in Stuart's own advice regarding an intimidating customer who has just entered her shop. Each agree to follow the other's guidance until this disgruntled waitress turns out to be more of an ally than a foe.
