Chairs (for a change)
I arrived to the presentation late (as usual), the speaker was a Microsoft speaker, so the number of attendees was more than usual (we don’t have time to waste giving a chance to a not well known speaker who spent so much time to learn something new and share his knowledge with us!).
There weren’t enough chairs, so I stood aside as many guys did, in few minutes they brought us three more chairs, someone sat on one of them and they all started looking at me to sit down, since I am the only girl standing, for some stupid reason I didn’t want to sit down (the only plus of being a girl is having the priority to sit down in situations like this, Well, I don’t want it!)
People kept coming to the session (late better than never), it was an important one! Everyone gets in, looks at the empty chairs, and then at the people standing at the back and the sides of the hall, thinks for few seconds and takes the smart decision ; Not to sit down!, that reminded of the story of "the monkeys in the cage"(if you don’t know it , google it ;-))
The last guy came in, naturally thought the same way others did, but he couldn’t find a place to stand, you think that made him change his mind and sit down?? NO…
He is smarter than that; he stood in the middle of the hall:)
Acting like the monkeys in the cage may be natural, but I don’t think it is natural for a guy (tuuul bi 3arrrrd bi certificates bi experience …) to stand in the middle of the hall preventing at least 3 people (ma3 shuayet mubalaghah) from seeing the slides:)

loooooooooool,
It has been loooooong time sice your last post.

But you really made me laugh.

It's a good thing that you didn't sit at that chair, becauce a girl like you would never take advantage of being a girl.

Salut

and they say guys are like rubber...

actually men have the right to be like rubber! coz gurls are so unpredictably unpredictable men don't know how to react!

if the guy sat down on the chair tash would be writing a post about how men dont respect women anymore, but they stayed respectful to the last minute('7aifeen yesma3oolhom kelmeh).
so there is no right thing to do here.
