Is this seat taken? It is a question we have all heard sometime in our life. It is not really a question but an invitation. The person is asking to invade your space and you have to allow them in. You can refuse and blow them off or you can invite into your life. We are social creatures and at some point we need one another. We all have a choice when it comes to other people, we can shun them or invite them in. We have all at one point or another felt the pain of rejection. So the question remains and the choice is yours: "IS THIS SEAT TAKEN?"
