A woman sits outside a bar at a table with two chairs. She has a large glass of wine and is reading a novel. A man walks past, stops, looks back at her and then walks back to stand beside her table.
MAN: Excuse me can I sit here?
She looks up at him and then looks around
WOMAN: Well I’d rather you didn’t
MAN: Can I ask why not?
WOMAN: Well there are plenty of seats. If it was full and you needed a seat then sure. But it’s not really necessary is it.
MAN: I just wanted some company.
WOMAN: I’m reading my book so I won’t be much company.
She looks back down at her book.
MAN: I’ve not had a very good day.
WOMAN: Mine’s getting worse by the minute.
MAN: What are you reading?
She holds it up to show him.
MAN: Any good?
She puts the book down.
WOMAN: Ok you can sit here, take a seat.
He does so. She picks up her book, wine and bag and moves to the furthest table. She sits down and reads.
MAN: Well that was rude.
