I am at a crowded food court, food stalls all have a 20 minutes queue, and not a single seat is available. Eating outside of the food court is not an easy option either.
But then there is this 4 people table with nothing but a small bag put at the middle of it.
I can only suppose that a person or group of persons has put it to "reserve" the table before going to the food stalls. I don't know how long ago they put it.
I am just one person, so I could eat on the corner of the table without touching the bag, and possibly be finished before they even come back. I could also simply wait for a seat to become free, which should take no more than 10 minutes.
- Question 1: In this situation, is such "reservation" an acceptable behavior?
- Question 2: What would you do in my case?
