The other night I was sitting in a bar. As customary with me I shifted my stool to see the door and have the least amount of my back to the room. I was with a bunch of vets but one non-vet realized that all of our chairs were oreinted in such a way as mine was. What is it that makes us do that. Its not taught in any military school I know of. Its a strange habit. I mean when was the first time you used it? I don’t have any memory of using it in combat, and yet if I don’t my skin crawls. Gunfighters in the wild west did it when they were in buildings to see guys coming in to smoke them. Where did we pick it up? Was is it a cultural thing did we just see others doing it and think that’s the way? Or was it that our similar experience has led us to the same conclusion and actions? I have no clue. Anybody have any idea?
