Etiquette question: Is 'seat-saving" in university lectures acceptable?

BronzedAdonis
Uni has started again and I went to a lecture in a big, crowded theatre. As I was walking down the steps scanning for a vacant seat, I saw one. As I was about to sit down the girl sitting beside it stopped me and said it was "saved for her friend" (reserved for friend) who wasn't there yet.

I couldn't believe what I was hearing and paused for a second. Is this primary school or university? I ignored what she said and sat down.

I just thought it was incredibly childish.

What are your thoughts on the issue?

is seat-saving in uni acceptable or not?
was that a dick-move on my part?
