Probability Vs. Magic

I get on the Nottingham to London train and take the first seat I see that has a table. I then realise that the seat I am in is reserved so I think I better move to my reserved seat rather than have the embarrassment of ‘oh oh oh I’m British but oh oh oh you’re in my seat’. I check the reservation on my ticket and … I’m sitting in the exact seat that I was allocated! The train is 6 coaches. I didn’t look at the seat reservation prior to the trip. At all.
