Flying with Entitled People|| Time Spent In Series

So we all know about my aversion to flying with babies (here, if you do not) and to kids in general (here, if that is also news to you).

BUT, you know who’s worse to travel with in a flight after babies?


But no, not all men. There is a special category of men who are actual pain to travel with and they are men who have travelled soo many times on flights that they feel entitled to act a certain way inside the aircraft.

Now of course, women do this too probably. I am just speaking for myself here and I have had this problem  I only with men. Basically, please be kind and don’t get butthurt, guys. πŸ’–

1. Bathroom Entitlement

First things first, is it me or do men pee too many times?! Like, dude/uncle we just sat down. You don’t have to pee as soon as the  captain switches off the seat belt sign, do you? I mean, this doesn’t affect me per se except that I have to get up every time your bladder decides it needs attention, but that’s okay. I don’t mind it. You must probably get it checked though :/

2. Seat Belt Entitlement

And talking about seat belt signs, why is it that most uncles (usually them) MUST remove their seat belts the second the caution light goes off?! I mean, it’s not horribly uncomfortable or anything. Or is it the pot belly? I would never know, I guess.

3. Seat Back Entitlement

Also, why must you be a jerk and ALWAYS push you seat back soo much that poor old me sitting in the back end up having to do origami twists to save my leg from crushing​? I know my legs are short and all, but still maan. If I’d known you were going to take all my leg space I’d have bought a half ticket just for my torso to fit and then curl up in the seat πŸ˜’

4. Arm Rest Entitlement

Why the hell are men on my sides taking up the ENTIRE seat handle?! I need a bit of space on it to keep my arm too you know. I mean as I origami myself into the seat my arms need to be kept on the sides or my muscles start spasming and it hurts and stuff (damn, I am oldπŸ˜“)

5. The Leg Entitlement.

Good thing I don’t get space to keep my leg down because if I did, where will the uncles on my sides keep their legs?! I mean they have to man spread (obviously!) and my legs shouldn’t get in the way, right?

Same goes for the guy in the back who decides to keep his leg under my seat. It’s not your fault you’re soo tall, but why don’t you try not moving then around soo much so we share that space so you and I can both be comfortable? But no worries. Thanks to uncle in the front lounging away, my legs are numb from all the crushing.

All this being said though, the minute I voice my concern men are usually extremely adapting and they keep their legs/arms/seat back in check. So maybe they just don’t realise other people getting crushed or have issues controlling their bladder.  

I don’t ever say anything though, because I do not like confrontation and I’d preferably get crushed for 5 hours than actually look at a human being in the eye and say that they need to sit properly.

So men, guys, please. Just look around sometimes and try to keep your bladder and your limps in your own personal space.  πŸ™‚

  1. No 1. Do men actually do that…? I’ve not peed even once when on an aircraft. I mean, flights are so short across states of India, where’s the time? U sit..and its time to get up. Its not like I travel by planes every time, but whenever I do..its pee pee only at the airports-before or after flights.
    We should travel together πŸ™‚

    1. Hahaha! That’s the worst part!
      Imagine having to get up 5 times (for someone else to pee) in a span of 1 and half hours! Worse if you’re on the aisle seat coz then you have to get up for the pee schedules of 2 people 😦 😦
      But seriously! We should travel together. You seem to have good flying etiquette πŸ˜€

  2. I have experienced a few of these issues when travelling by bus. I’ve never been in a flight so can’t tell anything about that. I guess the basic behaviour of marking space and territory remains same, though. And even in theatres, people taking up the whole armrest or knocking on your seat with their knees are so, what should I say, annoying. And yes, that includes both men and women.
    Guess you need to take a banner with you the next time. People aren’t going to learn.
    Hail Origami, though! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    1. Oh god, yes! This happens EVERYWHERE! But I think my tolerance levels are reeaally low when I am flying so I rant about flying things more than others.
      Do you really think a banner will help? I am getting to work in making one then :/

      Origami FTW πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      1. Who knows what might work so, what’s the harm in trying? Plus, the banner would be a definitive signal for the co-flyers not to mess with you. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
