    well, I don't grab freebies lying around. If it's perfectly clean and unopened, who would mind some tissue spree?
    a single person going alone for a meal has equal right to a seat as a group of diners. unless the group is a mob, bear with it or eat else where.

    so the conclusion is.....don't waste time debating. just do what you want.
    yeah, by keep telling people don't do it don't do it and he/herself do it.

    or say I will sure take the tissue away and actually dare not to touch it....

    You can also view the first act as littering, and the second act as picking up litter and disposing it properly.

    Firstly, 2 wrong dosen't make 1 right. The first act merely is a selfish act, the second act (free tissue) can be viewed as stealing. Tho the value of the pack of tissue is "almost" nothing and no one would bring it up... value aside, a wrongful act is still the wrongful act.

    some foodcourt layouts do have those long tables that have a space or 2 for individuals to squeeze in.

    Others, like Taka one... no chance.

    how can throwing an unidentified, unclaimed tissue packet which is lying around uncivilised? we are helping to clean the environment and the attitude of the society. How are you sure that the tissue paper isn't leftover from the previous diners? This is such a confusing national crisis.

    Well, not everything in life is simple. Consideration and not being self-centered is essential in harmonious living. Dang, I sound like a diplomat.

    in the 1st place, the tissue left on the seat unlikely a pocket of soiled tissue. if its left behind the previous owner more so you should not have thrown it away. wad if its some other items, would you do the same?

    how can throwing stuff away left behind (if its the case) be a civilised act?
