Let’s admit it. We never liked having our seats assigned back in school, especially when the arrangement “took us away” from our BFF. As adults, we often wait for our friends or relatives before we’re seated together at a wedding.

What if you don’t get to make ANY decision about your seating arrangement at a wedding, and you have no choice but to share a table with complete strangers? In a Facebook post by XUAN Play, a Malaysian man shared his experience of having to sit next to a group of strangers. However, he wasn’t the only one who went through the same.

His other colleagues were there but everyone was isolated and the groom, who is 1 of his colleagues made the arrangements.

According to the FB post, about 20 of them from the workplace attended the wedding but little did they know, the groom had something else in mind. Instead of sitting together with familiar faces, he arranged for his colleagues to share tables with his relatives and friends. If you’re an introvert, reading this will possibly make you scream internally.

“Sorry, I am not putting you guys together. You guys will be sharing tables with my friends and relatives!”

No one was happy about the seating arrangements but at the same time, none of them fought to sit together since the decision had been made. The wedding day was both anticipated and dreaded, thanks to the expected awkwardness.

The man described how awkward it was to be seated together with the groom’s relatives,

“His relatives kept staring at me, and I don’t think they knew about the seating arrangements too.”

He added, “If I didn’t have to see him every day, I would’ve skipped this wedding. It was so awkward”.

Their manager decided not to attend the wedding due to his dissatisfaction with the seating arrangements. Well, not everyone has the emotional and mental capacity to handle an awkward situation.

“He’ll learn in another wedding or two”

Netizens found his story hilarious and many could relate to how awkward the situation was. Some also jokingly said the groom will get better experience in arranging the seats after “a couple more weddings”.

“That’s a funny arrangement.”

“When you get married, isolate him and his partner. Get him to sit with a beautiful girl, and arrange his wife to sit with an uncle.”

“Was he arranging for you guys to serve his relatives?”

“He’s really weird. I would’ve made a noise about it regardless if it was a wedding or not.”

“Forgive him. It was his 1st time, he’ll learn more after a few more weddings.”

“This newbie did such bad work in seating arrangements.”

“It’s okay, he’ll get the gist when he marries again.”

Would you be okay to share a table with complete strangers during a wedding, when your family or friends are there?
