    There was a large void between. New found rivals suspiciously eyeing each others brunches across a barren metal plateau.

    One day I will test the theory that a stranger will automatically move if you sit touching their physical border with ample space otherwise. If I 'member.

    Yep. A number of times. They are always crazy people and flip out though. I get tired sometimes and it’s very comforting to rest my head on another’s shoulders.

    I can't remember the last time I sat on a bench... let alone with someone already sitting there.

    The closest example is when I sat next to a bunch of people on a bench during jury duty (which I got out of).

    When I went to Spain one time I lay on a bench cos my back was hurting and a drunk man came over within like 2 minutes and started shouting and shadow boxing so I got up and left, and then watched him bother people for ages from another bench not very far away. Good times.

    @Clippy Benches are weird. Like do a lot of people want to be uncomfortable right next to each other?

    I remember relying on busses before learning to drive.

    You'd always get weirdos try and talk to you at bus stops.

    Tbh, they're always after me (/humblebrag) I told them my job only pays for some of the jury duty days (I'd have to take PTO for the rest but the judge didn't need to know that). He said "okay, it's considered financial hardship, dismissed!" and that was it.

    With that said, I had on a BLM shirt and I was already prepared (if I had to) to rant about how the laws are racially unjust, disproportional sentencing, etc. and my lack of faith in the system, but we didn't have to go there.

    Yes sir thread starter

    IN Honolulu in Waikiki I was on vacation. I was waiting for a bus on kapiolani blvd sitting at the bus stop bench.

    A Nice old (60-70) japanese lady came by and sat next to me. I'm a 30s white guy with civil war era mutton chops. She didn't speak English.

    But we both nodded and smiled and exchanged pleasantries. She kept pointing towards the mountains and pantomiming. I couldn't figure out what She was conveying. I started to just repeat the same of her hand motions and words and she'd nod.

    Back and forth this went on until I realized She was pantomiming holding an umbrella. She was saying it looks like rain. There were Dark clouds on the mountains.

    It was a great back and forth. I'll never forget it or her.
