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.
What would you do in a cast like this?
