I am blogging from a crowded plane. As I am pinned against the window in seat 20-A I wait for the seat belt sign to go off. I saw an exit row aisle seat available and wanted to make a move to 15-D, aka "Heaven"! I am currently sitting in "Hell-o", a regular window seat with the middle and aisle taken! I can hardly reach for my pack of gum in my right pocket without elbowing the poor little girl next to me! I'd hate to put a gash in her forehead as she works on her algebra!
A bloody a2 + b2 = c2 problem wouldn't look good on the professor's desk tomorrow!
I am getting a headache looking at her homework! Bad memories!!!
Back to my predicament...."Heaven" is on open exit aisle seat with no one in the middle!!! "Heaven" is especially appealing given the fact that I am on a four hour flight!!! Unfortunately, my man in 14-C saw "heaven", too. Since he is closer and in an aisle seat, he got it before I could even unbuckle! "14-C" did break a rule because he didn't wait for the seatbelt sign to turn off!
I want to complain to the ref/flight attendant about "14-C" jumping the gun! He should have been penalized for sure! No ethics, no morals! Unbelievable!!! They should put a height requirement for the exit seats, like they do at Disney. You have to be taller than the pelican's beak to sit there! The worst is when some 5'3" dude is sitting in the exit row! Their feet don't even touch the floor!
What is air travel coming to these days!!
