Too Close for Comfort

So there I was in a meeting, and this person comes in and puts her coat on the coat rack, and then picks up mine and tries it on without even asking!

No, wait, that wasn't it.

So there I was at dinner before the play, and this person just walked by and ate a french fry right off my plate!

No, wait, that wasn't it either.

So there I was at the theater, and the woman next to me picks up my water bottle without a word and starts drinking it.

Yeah, that was it. Seriously.

I'd been fumbling for my water a few moments before, and couldn't quite get it so I figured rather than disturb the person next to me, I'd wait til intermission. It probably got kicked and was just beyond reach. Then the woman next to me reaches down and picks up an Alhambra bottle just like mine and starts to drink it. I thought, "Oh gee, we have the same water. That's going to be confusing." Then intermission happens, and I look down, and my water bottle isn't there. I'm standing in the aisle, and they're waiting to get out, so I say, "Oh, I'm sorry, I seem to have lost my water bottle. She pulls it out from under her chair and says, "Oh is it this one?" Yes, the one she's been drinking out of. The one that wasn't sealed when she started drinking it. The one that had my flu germs all over it and I'm actually hoping she gets it. At the time, I had no idea, but I was completely freaked out. Who picks up a random water bottle off the floor and starts drinking it?! EWWWW!!! I went down to the bar to find an exceptionally long line for $2 8 oz. bottles of Crystal Geyser. With Crystal Geyser's record, I don't drink it, so I went without. Actually, I found a drinking fountain ultimately. And then I had to go back to my seat next to the skanky water thief. I told Rick he had to take my seat because I couldn't guarantee I wouldn't say something completely rude. He did, and the woman ended up sitting on the other side of her companion. She never said a word.
