Op- hate to break it to you, but new hire or not, he/she absolutely has the right to boot you. It's not about this one incident, it's that shit like this keeps happening and some of us feel we can squat while others take 2 min out of their day to go through the reservation process. PiA as it is, still avoids shit like this. So don't complain about this "new hire" next time. Just move over and apologize for squatting!

Damn, was at EY for 2 plus years and reserved seat five times maybe. Always had that sweet window spot waiting for me. OP, relax, don't pay attention to these people. 😉
Poster who said phone lines are linked to the reservation, never used desk phone either lol, always through mobile or Skype.

If I have a space reserved, yo ass is getting booted. Period.

The whole point of the reservation system is to avoid these scenarios. Just reserve your own spot next time and own up to your mistake!

Yeah why are you even mad.. you could have reserved any of those 15 spots but you just chose to squat in someone's booked spot.. our phone lines are linked to the cubicles so he'd have to change the reservation to get the line pulled over. You're so rude OP

The main reason for me kicking you out, would be so I don't end up in someone else's seat who had reserved it. Because then I'm the asshole. And I'm not an asshole.
