Space. It's always at a premium. Whether in your car, at your desk, in your house or in your bed. It seems we can never get enough space. Let's take the bed as an example. Many of us have two adults, a pet or two, and even a child in the bed with you and space becomes a major factor.
We have a queen bed. Occasionally our cat will sleep at the foot of the bed but not often. Charley sleeps in her own bed. Which leaves just myself and John and some empty space. Let's talk about this space though.
In Person A's mind, the bed is divided in half down the center. One half is person A's, the other half is person B's and the line is not to be crossed. This space is mine and that space is yours sort of mentality. This person also has sat up in the bed to mark the spot that Person B's extremity was currently located to prove to Person B the magnitude of the line crossing offense. "Look how far over the line you are!"
Person B has a more relaxed approach to space. They think that if a space becomes available and it suits our current configuration then that space is for the taking. Not for the entire night but maybe just while it's available. If the space in question happens to be on the other person's side, then they may have the space back whenever they please. It is their side after all.
Person B can also be quoted to say that it's like a child's toy. If you aren't currently playing with it then it's not very nice to keep it from any of your friends to play with. It's called sharing. And we should share any available bed space in this same way.
Person A responds that it's not like a toy, but more like a car. Just because you have parked your car in the garage all night and it's not currently being used doesn't make it available for those without cars. There's no guarantee that the car will be back in the garage next morning when I need it. So this person wants to keep all available bed space that is rightfully theirs to themselves in case they decide they need it at some point in the night.
So. What's the consensus, internet? Does Person A need to relax a little? Or does Person B need to abide by the laws of the bed as we should all know?
