I avoid middle seats like the plague. I will sit in one if I absolutely have to but I will do all I can to avoid them--airplanes, movie theaters, concerts, seminars. I want the option to be able to make a clean getaway if I have to--whether it be out the door or to the bathroom.
...you gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.
I'm very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish their sentences.
