This is quite a pet peeve of mine. I understand that as a 5'1" woman in a crowded BART train that I cannot reach the overheard bars and I will most likely find myself having to breathe through my mouth while standing under someone's armpit because they're not SURE. But why do I have to scoot my chair back to obtain some personal space? And why am I stepping back TWICE during a casual conversation?
I would go into more detail for a juicier post but I don't want to be Fired for Blogging. It happens.
