Social Dilemma - Would You Have Complained on This Flight?

posted by Jaime Roberts -

Okay, so today's social dilemma came from something that happened to me on my flight home from Myrtle Beach.  I was wondering what you would have done in this situation.   The flight was from Myrtle Beach to Philadelphia...roughly an hour and a half flight.  Now as you know, I'm not a big fan of flying but I know if I want to get anywhere it's a necessary evil.  So I flew down to see my nieces and nephew, and then on the way home, I found out I was sitting in the very last seat on the plane.  I HATE sitting in the back, it's bumpy and loud, but there wasn't anything I could do about it because it was a full flight.  Okay, so I'm all ready to suck it up.  So I go sit in my seat and there is a big man sitting next to me.  Probably six-two or three and weighed about 280-300 pounds.  He had a cup of coffee with him that he put in the pack of the seat in front of him, you know like in the pocket.  Okay, not comfortable but we can make this work no problem.  I'll stay on my side and he'll stay on his.  Nope, that's not what happened.  He fell asleep about two minutes after takeoff and was all over me...his legs were over on my side, his head was as close to being on my shoulder as possible, his arm digging into my side.  But I don't like any bad karma, especially at 30,000 feet, so I let it go.  Then he starts snoring.  And I mean as loud as it is in the back in the plane, he is snoring louder than that.  And I have headphones on but it's still super loud.    And then comes the best part.   Something jars him awake and he bangs into the chair in front of him and his coffee comes out of the seat pocket and spills all over my legs.  My jeans were soaking wet.   So the flight attendant comes back and gives him paper towels and nothing to me.  So I asked her and she finally did.   But not nearly enough.  She was so rude.   She was not helping at all.  He apologized and was very nice, but after all this, I had had it.  And I'm anxious to begin with.  When we landed I couldn't wait to get off the plane. I thought about complaining not only about the coffee spill but about the not-so-nice flight attendant, but I decided not to because I didn't want bad karma for my next flight.  What would you have done.  HELP!  I'm not wise to the ways of flying!!  Let me know what you think on the 98-3 TRY facebook page!!
