A player wants to teleport home, grab someone, and teleport back.
There is a creature or object in the room that they player wants to teleport to.
Other spells, using dimension door (PHB pg. 221) as an example, describe the penalties for teleporting into an occupied space.
If you arrive in a place that is already occupied by a solid body, you and each creature traveling with you take 1d6 points of damage and are shunted to a random open space on a suitable surface within 100 feet of the intended location.
Teleport (PHB pg. 293) only mentions a penalty based on a % roll and the familiarity of the location, the worst being a "mishap".
Mishap: You and anyone else teleporting with you have gotten “scrambled.” You each take 1d10 points of damage, and you reroll on the chart to see where you wind up.
Since teleport did not mention anything about teleporting to a location occupied by a person, I took it to mean that when the player teleported they would arrive at the nearest unoccupied space to that location. I took it to mean that if the authors intended for the teleport spell to forcefully shunt players, or cause the spell to fail, it would have said so.
What's the consensus about teleporting into a room that is currently being occupied by a passerby?
