    What was the context you wanted to use this sentence in? Without context, it is practically meaningless.

    A person was asking me about a friend of his who used to work with me a few years ago. His friend used to sit in the bay opposite mine. This is what I wanted to tell that person.

    Shouldn't the sentence read Your friend used to sit...?
