Reclining is a dick move

the show with zefrank

I had been meaning to write this post after my return flight from Las Vegas and today’s The Show reminded me. I didn’t get any sleep the night before the flight so I immediately passed out on the runway. I was driven from sleep several minutes later when the woman in front of me slammed her seatback into my knees. Didn’t ease it back; slammed it. I don’t even know why seats on airplanes recline. I mean the reclining seat gives you two options: 1) occupy your own personal space or 2) assert yourself into someone else’s personal space. I actually enjoy the smaller Canadair Regional Jets they use as connector flights to Denver and Chicago since they’ve got an out cropping you can put one foot on which gets your one knee out of the way.

    I remember reading another article from a man who was 6′ 4″ and had to keep dealing with people reclining back into his legs. You’re not the only one having to deal with this issue and I think people should ask the person behind them if it ok if they’re going to go full recline into your leg space. Just my 2 cents.
