I am generally a very considerate person and I realize that we are all sharing a relatively small space when flying. That being said, I must admit that I have had my fair share of passive aggressive moments.
My favorite one was being stuck in front of two preppy, whiny, teenage girls who were about my age at the time, probably 16 or 17. After a half hour of them repeatedly kicking and jostling my seat (it was all the way up and they were pretty small girls), and their squeals of “OMG” and “like,” not to mention the fact that they had put their stuff under my seat and then proceeded to kick it all the way under so that whatever it was kept digging into the back of my heels, I had had enough. That is when the seat went back and their gasps that anyone would do that occurred. I probably should not have been as satisfied by that as I was. LOL.
