You eye catches up a colorful bench and you try to find a place to sit. It may feel uncomfortable to sit close to a stranger but moving your seat away from the other can be unpleasant as well.
What will you do?

SELECT YOUR SEAT.

Can you step into the blue seat and so I can swipe over the green one? a curved line are seats on a rail who can slide to the left and the right. 15 seats make 4 couples, 4 singles and a group of 3 people who want to sit together. Can I have this blue seat because I would like to sit next to my girlfriend. Can you step into the blue seat and give me the green one? We all know this from a theatre or a film house so it’s not that difficult. Just slide them on!
