Forced Out

Only two people are allowed to sit at the larger tables in the lunch room, since people take their masks off to eat and that’s a great way to get people sick. People ignore that pretty frequently, though.

So when four people are seated at a table next to me, I start to feel uncomfortable, but I finished my lunch a while ago, so I just put my mask back on and go back to reading quietly, but when yet another person comes up to sit there, she thankfully stops because there are too many people already at the table, saying, “Oh, I can’t sit there.”

She then pulls up a chair, sitting directly behind me, breathing down my neck, and without a word I close my book, stand up, and leave.
