Some strangers (especially foreign students) just like to share table with you while you are away buying food at the canteen.
Yesterday after placing my bag at the table I went off to buy my lunch. When I returned I was stunned to see a stranger sitting there, right in front of my big backpack. So with the extra few newtons of force I tossed my plate of rice onto the table and stared at the man with my cool chilly eyes.
"Is there someone sitting here?"
"All 4 seats are taken?"
nod. Actually I was having lunch alone.
Then the guy stood up while I sat down. The best part was after that 3 different lone lunchers
came one after another and asked if they could share the table with me, and I agreed, right in front of the first stranger who had by then found a table just in front of mine.
Maybe it's cultural difference or what, but it would be nice if he could at least ask if he could share the table with me before settling down. I know I feel wrong to be one person hogging 4 seats and giving the first guy different treatment and lying to him and etc... (it was like a revenge)
But if it was you, how would you feel to return to your table to find a complete stranger sitting there? (at least this time I was alone, there were times when we really needed all 4 seats)
