to feel slightly uneasy

I am in a train carriage. Only me and a couple of others in it, one of whom, a man, has already moved seats three times in ten minutes, each time with great gusto and involving a lot of to-ing and fro-ing as he has lots of carrier bags. Do I give in to this unease and move carriages, or give into my laziness and stay put. Two and a half hour journey ahead.

Perhaps he hasn't found the acoustic sweet spot yet?

Move .

Just out of curiosity, why does someone moving seats make you uneasy? And why would you want to move carriages because of it?

Is he getting right up close and personal to you? Making nasty comments/shooting bad looks in your direction?

I'd move, not because I felt threatened, but because I couldn't be arsed with someone farting around like that for two and a half hours.

who's the other person in the carriage though? Do you think they'll be all right on their own with him?

More people have got on now so I feel easier. Pretty, he has not done anything, just seems a bit strange. I think I am worried he might want to get into conversation, and I really can't deal with talking to anyone - long day, long story and don't want to drip feed. Oh he has just passed me again to retrieve an empty water bottle from one of his previous seats.

Unless he's getting personal, and you have not said that, there is no problem, but move if it makes you feel happier. Which is what he is doing.

Looking for a spot with a good signal on his phone?
