New word - Coffice

A coffice is a cafe that is being used for office work.

Seemingly more and more of us are doing our work in cafes - coffice work I guess.

    Once I got a coffice correction of my paper in German. I wouldn't say it was a great job. A German lady substituted das Dialog for der Dialog, und dergleichen mehr. Heat was insupportable and you could hear deafening music around. :) :) :)
    My essay was decidedly worse than before.

    Der Dialog is of course right, but you could have written it in Swiss`s dialect, because they say to the Tram das Tram hehe, at least around Basel.

    Well, I don't think a proofreader would accept it. :) :) :)

    Is coffice in the Oxford English Dictionary yet? If not, I'm very sure it soon will be.
