Space Issues

Maybe I just have personal space issues, but is it normal for some random person to sit in the booth with you when you’re eating your lunch?

I was sitting in a booth at Subway eating my regular 6-inch tuna on Italian Herb and Cheese bread when a teenager came and sat down in my booth today. Apparently, he was too tired to stand in the line, that’s what I overheard him tell his friends. The experience was a little odd and I was a little perturbed that someone would just come and sit in my booth, but it got me thinking. Why do I need a whole booth to myself anyway? Wouldn’t society be better off if we could sit in booths with strangers and be perfectly content?

  1. I've always wanted someone to share my table with me when I'm eating by myself. Not to talk to me but to save space. Around here, at lunch, places get busy and I hate taking up 4 spaces!It is a little odd that he didn't ask first.


  2. When I was in seminary in NJ and would happen up to Manhattan during the lunch hour, this is expected. You will share your booth with others.
