To the couples who sit on the same side of the booth,
Do you need to be together 24/7? Do you have some type of separation anxiety? Are you physically morphed together?
This past weekend, my boyfriend and I went to our favorite Mexican joint for date night. Per usual, it was packed and we were both starving. They sat us at a booth that literally only had one side.
The other side was a wall. We didn’t care because of how hungry we were. But once we were on the third basket of chips we started thinking about how odd it was that some couples sit on the same side of the booth EVERY TIME THEY GO OUT.
Talk about weird, right? Why is it that couples feel the need to invade each other’s personal space All. The. Time. What happens if you guys separate? Will you both spontaneously combust? How does all your food fit on the table?
What you’re doing, sitting on the same side, is basically a crime against humanity. You’re leaving an entire side of the booth vacant. It’s very awkward.
I need answers.
