#322 – Seated

It still creeps me out when people sit next to me in public places when there are plenty of empty seats next to nobody still available. Sometimes I think people are just running on autopilot and aren’t really paying attention. Sometimes I think they are alien spies that need to be close to me to read my thoughts clearly.

    I’d like to see the NTSB figure this one out! Also, I’d like to have a word with the designer that thought it was a good idea to make the seats a single-point-of-failure in the structural integrity of that aircraft. 😉

    What bugs me is when I leave a store and find that the area of the lot where I parked is now all but empty, and as I’m in my car getting ready to start up and drive off, somebody comes driving along the next aisle — and out of all the empty parking spaces they could choose for miles in every direction, they pull into the one right in front of me so I can’t just drive out frontwards.

    My thought process when taking a seat in a public area is that I don’t want to creep you out by sitting right by you, but I also don’t want you to think that I think you’re too gross to sit beside, so I will usually leave one chair between me and a stranger.

    I’ve read of mathematical studies that determine the arrangement of objects in an enclosed space so that they have the maximum total amount of distance from each other. The mathematics of it are fiendish… but the study found that humans accomplish it easily in elevators.

    “Oh, I see you have an angry look and are sitting alone way back here in this bus that few people ever take. In addition to sitting ON you, I’ll try to make awkward and stilted casual conversation.”

    I walk everywhere.
