What Do You Do When Someone Sits Too Close? [POLL]

I was at the doctor’s office yesterday, waiting for my appointment.  I checked in and promptly took my seat.  I pretty much had the run of the place.  There was a woman and her daughter and who I guessed to be the grandmother.  They were reading magazines and playing with some toys.

I had maybe been seated for 5 minutes when a guy came in, checked himself in and took a seat… right next to me. Now, before you accuse me of having strange “space bubble” issues, let me say that the waiting area was pretty much empty.  And I like  a good conversation as much as the next person but isn’t there some kind of rule about a buffer seat or something?  It just felt awkward to be nearly touching knees with someone when every other seat in the room was up for grabs.

I didn’t know what to do.  Should I have moved?  That seems kind of rude.  Maybe get up, wander around a little, then find a new place to sit?  No matter what you do, it’s just awkward.

Here’s what you had to say on the morning show today.
