Scolded For Showing Skin

December 23, 2009

in Senior Stories

I was flying on an 8 hour flight from Boston to Frankfurt to start a semester abroad in Germany. I had the window, and next to me two little old ladies sat next to me. I was feeling pretty lucky cause they didn’t smell bad, or take up my seat, and kept to themselves.

It was winter, so I had a zip up sweater, and underneath a sleeveless t-shirt. I was starting to overheat in the plane, so I took off my sweater.

Suddenly the cute little old lady next to me starts scolding me and telling me I need to cover myself and not show off so much skin. It wasn’t even a tank top!

I was so shocked I didn’t know what to do besides put my sweater back on. Eventually the old lady fell asleep and I was able to cool down without being called a harlot.

Someone once bitched at me because I was watching anime on my laptop, and she didn’t want her kid watching over my shoulder. I was in the window seat, the kid was in the middle, and the mom was in the aisle. I wasn’t even watching anything violent/lewd, and I was using headphones. I told her to go shove a stick up her ass.
