Grammar Books for Protection?

<p>
Today in New York I got into a verbal altercation with a woman at a cafe who refused to move her belongings off an adjacent seat so that I could sit down. (There were no other seats.)</p>

<p>
Here's what happened.</p>
<p>
I asked her politely if the seat was free. She said yes but did not move her purse and a grocery bag off the chair.</p>
<p>
I asked her, still politely, if she would mind moving her things.</p>
<p>
She told me, "I'm leaving in three minutes."</p>
<p>
I told her, "I'm here now." Nothing.</p>
<p>
I said, "I'm moving your stuff." Nothing.</p>
<p>
I picked up her stuff and put it on the floor and she <em>freaked out</em>. I sat down while she was still freaking out and ignored her.</p>
<p>
Soon afterwards I placed a book on Arabic verbs on the table between us -- and she never said another word to me.</p>
