We’ve all dreaded it; a foreboding creature eyeing the seat next to us. I’ve found the most ominous ones are usually clothed in some sort of vibrant pattern that says “I have no natural predators.”
I have found that these vibrant patterns are an indicator that not only will the seat next to me be taken, but my leg will be a landing crash pad in the seating process. My lap will then become host to a plethora of re-usable Steve Madden shopping bags filled with files, magazines, spare shoes and a perhaps a feather boa. Although the boa may be a packed lunch, considering these particular seat partners have no predators I assume they are at the top of the food chain.
