Okay, you can see already that I am not politically correct. Last week I flew on a business trip and as I approached my seat, an obese woman sitting in the seat next to what was supposed to be mine, looked down at the approximately three inches of my seat she left for me and then looked out the window.
I paid for my seat. She paid for hers. She got here seat and most of mine. Her right to be fat should end at her seat. The seat she paid for did not include the right for her fat ass to take up my seat as well. It’s rude and theivery at the same time.
Lo and behold, on my return flight the man sitting next to me was about 400 pounds and approximately 6’4.” Once again I paid for a seat I did not get to use. My back and hip still hurt from leaning away for over two hours each way. Airline seats may be too small for comfort for anyone but they do fit the large majority of people.
If you are a large person or obese you need to buy an extra seat. If you are obese you may not feel it’s right to have to buy two seats but it sure is not right for you to take your seat and mine. I am not responsible for your double-wide ass and I don’t want to be penalized for it. Attention airlines, please do your job without fear of the ACLU and require fat people to buy two seats. If these fat people show up for a flight and have not paid for the second seat, please do the right thing and make them pay for a second seat if available or if there is no seat available then don’t let them fly.
I am done tolerating this unacceptable and rude behavior. Be forewarned airlines and rude fat people, the next time a rude fat person tries to break my back by taking up my seat with their fat ass, I am going to raise hell with you and the airlines and I will be in the right in doing so. Enough already!
