But decided against it as i tot to myself they must have gold in their mouth n will drop out if they open their mouth...
or they stand to lose anything by asking for permission to share table or is it their pride to ask a favour from someone much younger then them?
or simply dun know what basic courtesy is about?
or juz hack care attitude or dun wan to be courtesy?
And everytime i go to the Gents, duno abt ladies, it seems dat some of us are not toilet trained or simply duno what is a flush?
or the bo chap attitude? got caught by inconsiderate virus bug?

I ever encountered this.
For people who work in Shenton Way will know how kiasu the people are during lunch time. Like if they dont eat that meal will die
Its like a standard thing to 'chope' seats/tables with packet tissues. Or just stand around and hope the person eat faster and leave. What makes me really angry is when you're obviously waiting by the table and then the person saw his/her friends and gave up the seats to the friends instead! Then, you can only open your eyes big big for other seats
Why be affected by rude ppl who r obviously trying to seek attention? as for the lady if she were to shout at me i would just ignore her and continiue sitting at the place... (at the end of the day the one being ignored will feel so stupid for making a scene) as for the "tissue chope place" thingy its more simple... just sit, take the packet of tissue put inside pocket and take it out to use after ur meals... hahaha...
Actually, had seen some angmoh did that ard golden shop area. lunch time, too pack, 2 angmoh wearing tie saw table "chop" using tissue, 1 of them kept the 2 packets and took the seats, the other went to gt food. When the ladies, who had use t he tissue to "chop" the seats return with their food tray, shock to see ppl seating at their place. they ask the angmoh if he had seen packets of tissue on the table nt. angmoh jus acted blur and saw he jus came, no see anithing on the table and assume ppl had jus left and he took the table. No choice, the ladies gt to too look ard for empty table liao. ....haha
The culture of using tissue pack to reserve seats seem to be prevalent in the Shenton Way area. I didn't know about it until my friends told me about it, and I personally saw it when I happened to work at Tanjong Pagar for a few months.
My friends and I had always worked in the west, so there was once when my friends had to go to Shenton Way on a job errand. It was already lunch time, so they went to a food court in Shenton Way to have their lunch. Seeing there were some 'empty' seats, they went to order their food 1st. After ordering, they saw an empty table, and proceed to seat there. To their surprise they saw a few packets of tissue on the seats. At that time, being a bit "sua ku", they thought that:"Wah! Shenton Way area service is so good, still got provide free tissue paper."
They finished their lunch quickly, and proceed to use some of the "free" tissue. Just as they were about to leave, the actual owner of the tissue packs return with their food. That was then they realised that the tissue packs were meant to reserve seats, and they finally notice that all the other "empty" tables also had tissue packs. The hastily leave the food court before the actual owner of the tissue packs can say anything.
So actually, you don't need to bring any tissue paper when you are having lunch in the Shenton Way area. There are many "free" tissue papers for you to use hee hee
