It doesn't matter how tired you are, or how many chairs are available in your host's house or near a group of people in a restaurant. You do not just plop yourself on a chair. It is just not polite. But if you start with the phrase "may I? (point at chair, door)" (Men Fadlek), then unless the chair is taken, everyone will happily nod and allow you to join their group.
