Re: The nerve of some people

What a story and the chair stealers were very rude.   Unfortunately some people were not raised with any manners and think everything is all about them.

Where are the poorly behaved dogs and bratty children in this story?

I too think they thought the seats were provided by the venue and the woman was saving seats...or they were drunk.

Re: The nerve of some people

If I had been the 'chair watcher', I would have folded the vacant seats and rested them up against the seat I was sitting in, with my arm resting on top of them.

 

That would show anyone, tourist or not, that those seats were personal propery and no one could've sat in them if they were folded up.

 

But you're right, those seat snatchers were incredibly rude if it took a cop to make them move, once it was explained to them by the seat watcher.

@151949, are they going next year?  If they do, have them go two at a time and two setting use the other two's chairs as foot rests.

The one watching the chairs did tell them the chairs were private property.

@KingstonsMom  But then we wouldn't have a story to complain about.

Re: The nerve of some people

I deal with rude and inconsiderate people everyday. It’s sad that you had to go as far as getting a cop to solve the issue.
