Where do you sit?

This is a neighborhood bagel shop that I'm in, so it's not like, a dangerous area. What about you? When you all go sit somewhere, do you go by yourself? And if you go by yourself and the seating is open, open seating, you can sit wherever you want. Where do you like to sit? Do you like to have your back against the wall so you can see who's coming? Do you not care?

I guess I sit in the back furthest away from people at McDonald's, my local McDonald's, they have a play area thing where they have the slides and little climbing stuff for kids. I like sitting in there now. It's weird when I'm at McDonald's and I don't see that because I'm just so used to my kids being with my kids and stuff. But yeah. Jordan, I think you're going to start asking us how do we tie our shoes?

So if it's not a salad or, you know, super high protein, low carb, if I decided I wanted the burger and fries that day, I might be like, oh, everybody's looking at me. But for the most part, I'm going to sit out in the open where I can see people, people can see me, and I'm just going to enjoy my meal

I would feel like I don't know if that makes any sense, but that's kind of how I feel about it. Yeah, that first lady in the photo looks like she's waiting for someone else who's, like, in line getting the food. It was almost like, you go grab a table, and I'm going to get the food. I don't know. That's the vibe I got from it when I saw the photo

But still, when I'm waiting for somebody, I don't sit in that seat. I would have sat in that booth facing outward. It's weird for me. I was thinking about that out of everything I could be thinking about at that time while waiting for my bagel, I was way waiting for I was thinking about how people are sitting in their chairs. I have no excuse. It was fun, though. My bagel was good

You know, it's not that I was thinking about how you tie your shoes, but I think my next question was going to be, how do you put on your button down shirts? Like, do you unbutton the whole shirt, like when you're taking it off, and then button it back up so you can put it back on the hanger? Or do you like, I take mine off, I unbutton maybe like the the top two buttons

That's how I sit. Now, when I'm out on a date with my guy, he takes on that position, and so then I can sit comfortably and confidently with my back to what's happening, because I know he has my fix. Like, he's looking and making sure that we are okay and he has a plan. So I don't even have to think about that when we're together

Stop working. Well, in my case, whether I'm with somebody or alone, when I go into a restaurant, I don't go into a restaurant very much, but when I do, I always sit with my back to the wall. So that probably tells you something about me

But I didn't really start to feel like I am a bit paranoid and I didn't really start to feel this way until I got into security. Yes, I think it was all the videos that they showed us in training. The stories about security guards who've been attacked at, at a company that I work for who had his back turned away from the entrance

So with regards to me, if I'm the visiting a new restaurant and if I don't know the city much and the locality much and if I have to sit alone and eat in a new restaurant, I would prefer to sit, obviously, where the view is nice outside and if it's a good cozy corner so that I can read my book and eat. I don't like to use my smartphone while eating

You. Thank you for showing sharing your experience. I've never heard of that before that in a restaurant they will sit you with a complete stranger. Is that something that is common in India or is that specific to Mumbai? Yeah, that's really interesting to me. I guess the only time that I have experienced something like that is when I took a trip to Vietnam. And we weren't sitting at separate tables

Yes, it's common in India specifically where I have experience in cities that have big It companies like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai where have worked. It's not like everywhere in India for me when I don't get home cooked food like Tiffan and I don't want to eat office scantine food and I don't want to eat in big fancy restaurants where ambience is good but food sucks. And for me sandwich or pizza, burgers just a snack, not lunch or dinner
