The Four Questions are just not that into you

Q. What is Dave wearing?

A. Dave is wearing a facial expression that displays his disapproval. Someone has put a cup of water next to the only empty comfy chair at Starbucks, signifying that it is, is fact taken. However, the owner of the water cup is nowhere to be seen. Dave wants to sit in the comfy chair but is a Nice Jewish Boy. NJBs will not risk sitting in an unoccupied chair if there's a possibility the previous occupant has just popped away for a moment, and will come back soon to claim it.

Q. What kind of mood is Dave in?

A. Despite his consternation over the unused chair, Dave is quite contented.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave’s mood?

A. Dave slept well and finds work challenging but fulfilling.

Q. Did someone who is obviously not the owner of the water cup JUST NOW sit down in the comfy chair?

A. Dave reports that yes, in fact, a man did in fact in the comfy chair, showing no concern for whether or not the owner of the water will return presently. This man is obviously not a Nice Jewish Boy.
