Never read anything on the proper etiquette regarding this subject. However, in my humble opinion, I would like to offer:

If it's un-avoidable, sometimes it just happens, "a" would probably be best.

If at a table with people who have absolutely no consideration for the other guests, option "b" would probably be as good as anything.

Again, just my opinion.
