I was having dinner at my local sushi joint last night when I witnessed the following exchange.
A university-aged couple walked in. The server showed them to their table, which had a booth on one side and chairs on the other. The guy headed for the booth seat.
The girl said, "Do you want the outside [chair] or the inside [booth]?"
He thought about it for a second and responded, "Do you want the inside?"
"Maybe," she replied. So he offered her the booth seat.
I had to laugh, not only because it seemed like such a passive aggressive way to communicate, but because I'm sure the hubby and I have had this exact same exchange before. More than once. Fortunately, he just laughs at me.
This is so silly. Why do we do this?
