I Hope This Isn’t Any of Youse Guys.

Back home in the GAHden State after two weeks of Florida sunshine. I’ve got a fair amount of post-vacation stuff to take care of, but I wanted to say something while my travel experience is still fresh in my mind.

As noted above, I certainly hope that none of youse guys fit this description, but sometimes a thing just has to be said, so here goes:

If you are flying coach with someone sitting in the seat behind you, and you decide to recline your seat, you are an INCONSIDERATE PRICK.

There, now I feel better.



  1. Welcome Home!

  2. I flew home from Nashville on Friday and an INCONSIDERATE PRICK in the row in front of me, but not the seat in front of me, reclined. The stew came right along and asked him to recline no more than 2″ because “the man behind you doesn’t have room”. That was the first time I saw that.

    Usually, if I get reclined upon, I do this:
    – gasp as if I got slapped
    – let out an exaggerated “oooooh noooo”
    – scooch around and knock against the seat back a couple of times while trying to adjust to the new space limitation.

    It rarely results in an unrecline, but it makes me feel that I made my point.

  3. Also –

    If you happen to be on the aisle and can get up to get into the overhead, sometimes things accidentally fall out of those overhead compartments.

    Just saying…

  4. I find it annoying myself…….being a big dude myself,I politely say “excuse me! but when I am cramped for space it makes me prone to flatulence”. If that don`t work….Turn on your overhead directional air nozzle,point it toward your lap,lay down a silent green mister which will then drift forward to the offending jerk.
    This usually achieve`s results …sometimes they ask for a seat change elsewhere in the plane.

  5. I don’t mean to be the comment thread doosh — I am asking out of genuine curiosity: If reclining on a plane is such a dooshy thing to do, why is that option built in to the seats?

  6. Erica……
    Reclining seats on an Aircraft which seats 120 passengers in space designed for about 88 is the same as an ashtray in a new car when only about 28% of adults smoke…..ignorance & stupidity.
