POLITICALLY CORRECT


A FEW YEARS AGO I WAS ON A FLIGHT FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO SEATTLE. IN THE WINDOW AND CENTER SEATS WERE TWO RATHER LARGE PEOPLE THAT I ASSUMED WERE HUSBAND AND WIFE. THEY HAD THROWN UP THE ARM RESTS AND LITERALLY LEFT ME WITH ABOUT ½ OF MY AISLE SEAT! I IMAGINED THAT IF THE PLANE WAS FULL I WOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND IN S.F. AS THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD HAVE POSSIBLY FIT IN WHAT REMAINED OF MY SEAT.
PERHAPS HAD THESE TWO NEVER FLOWN BEFORE THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A LEGITIMATE EXCUSE BUT THEY WERE OLDER THAN ME AND SO NOT VERY LIKELY…IN THAT CASE THREE THINGS SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED; AT LEAST ONE OF THEM SHOULD HAVE VOLUNTEERED TO GET OFF THE PLANE SO I COULD HAVE HAD MY FULL SEAT, OR THEY SHOULD HAVE PURCHASED 3 COACH SEATS TOGETHER OR TWO FIRST CLASS SEATS.
