Scary Seminar Seat Selections

Scary seminar seatYou knew trying to set up the last-minute experiment was going to cost you- it just wasn’t clear how badly… After speed-walking to the seminar room, you quietly enter – the introduction has just started.  You carefully scan the crowd for familiar faces and empty seats.  Unfortunately, you recognize all of the faces sitting next to each of the remaining five seats.  Even the Dali Lama would struggle to remain calm when faced with an hour sitting right next to one of these folks.

But there’s no time to waste, the speaker was just introduced and she’s about to start.  You’ve been waiting two months to hear this talk.  It’s time to ask yourself, “Do I feel lucky?”… Now pick a seat.

Who would you rather sit by in a seminar?

    Worse than sitting next to "The Nodder" is sitting immediately behind him.

    Or sitting in front of "The Sneezer"…

    Ooooh actually my most hated seminar neighbor is the "slight cougher": they aren't hacking up a lung, but instead are doing that impotent, just-beyond-throat-clearing baby cough.

    I prefer the nodder because at least they are quiet and not as stinky!
