I don't HAVE to sit facing the entrance. I just like to. It's more because I'm a people watcher.

I have to do it.. It bugs the hell out of me..

If I sit with my back to the door I eventually have my chair turned so I can at least see it peripherally

Why do you think it bugs you so much?

I do find that most males I know would prefer to have the seat facing the entrance. I even had a few ask to switch out with me just to have that seat.

It's an OCD / ADHD thing.. and apparently it's a control thing from what I have been told recently..

No but you had to watch out for constant harassing....

I feel the same way, too. I MUST sit facing the entrance to where ever I go, if possible. Sometimes, my wife will mess with me and take the seat that she knows I am aiming for. I hate that! lol

Yea sitting with my back towards the entrance is a real pain. It doesn't allow me to check out the guys that walk in.

I always sit facing the entrance. To take it a step further, I always try to look for an escape route in the event something jumped off...i.e. a restaurant shooter et al.

It's in my best interest to be aware of my surroundings. My twisted logic is that if some loon entered the establishment with murderous intent, at least I won't be obliviously murdered, in the worst scenario. And I'd have the opportunity to protect my loved ones and myself giving us a chance to survive, in the best scenario.

P.S.
I'd like to add that I would NEVER EVER be followed home. EVER.
And yes...this has to do with where I grew up. WESTSIIIIIIIDE! Motherfuckers.

Parking in reverse makes perfect sense...in case you gotta make a getaway.

I also used to turn off the switch to my interior lights so that when I opened the door the interior lights would not come on. When trying to make a getaway in the dark, lights give away your position.
Shit. I was tactical before tactical was cool.

Now...standing in line sideways? That's extreme!

That's kind of funny. I do the sideways stand in a line as well. I just don't like to have my back to people I don't know.
