This is a perfect example of the basic disconnect between introverts and extroverts. It's interesting to see that both mean well; they just are - or should I say WE are - at cross purposes from the getgo.

Well, yeah, we're all people. But would you agree that there are, shall we say, subdivisions?

Just get up and move and give them a dirty look. They are being rude. Also who knows what their motives are. Iíve heard of a lot of crime starting this way on public transit.

I havenít had this happen recently but when I would be waiting my for therapist it would happen sometimes while other times the look I would give them would be enough for them not to sit by me.
