Guests Sitting at the Hors d'ouevre Table

Has this ever happened to you? We were telling gauche guest stories at the beginning of a party yesterday and I related the story about one of my guests and his date pulling chairs up to the table with the canapes and proceeding to eat. We all chuckled and I commented that I never put chairs or anything near the hors d'ouvre. I was helping to set up and we put most of the hors d'ouevres on a free standing counter between the kitchen and family room. Later on in the party I noticed that two women had gotten stools from somewhere and, yep you guessed it, pulled them up to the counter. You actually had to say excuse me to reach the food! Even after that they didn't move. Ever happen to you? What are your gauche guest stories?
