How do you actually sit correctly? You shouldn't have your legs wide apart, it's not appropriate. Slumped sitting is also not welcome, nor is slouching on a chair. So the legs are crossed - at a business appointment as well as in a restaurant.
This is the sitting posture that has become established in society, at least in public. But it's not really that good. Because in the long run, crossing your legs can be harmful to your health.
