Airplane passengers agree that, ‘people who ask you to switch seats are the ultimate thorn in your flying experience’: Personal stories are shared to back this decision

Flying used to be a luxury experience. Never for anyone under 50 years old, but it apparently used to be very relaxing and fun. Now, the first thing you experience when you get to the airport is the unnerving feeling someone might have slipped a kilo of illegal substances into your bag while you nervously walk around in your socks… Doesn't sound as luxurious anymore. Plus, if you want any sort of comfort on the flight, you need to dish out the cash. So if you want extra legroom or just the assu…

Update: ‘Instead of getting promoted, I got fired’: Employee comes home from vacation, finds out they lost promotion, then gets fired

Despite finding it difficult to fathom, I am fully aware that coworkers have the tendency to try throwing you under the bus, and you can either sit there and take it, or hatch a clever plan to dodge their attempts. But sometimes, the bad guy wins… we aren't exactly living in a corporate fairy tale. Before we get into u/TroaAxaltion's story of petty revenge that actually ended them up being fired, you can check out their first original post for some extra context, here. OP was working in the con…

'I'll stop when I can put my seat back': Travelers claim the same airplane space

'I'll stop when I can put my seat back': Traveler faces off with tall dude in squabble over airplane space

These travelers couldn't agree on who deserves to have leg room. They ended up getting in an argument, which u/earthshaker495 shared to r/MaliciousCompliance. This story takes place aboard a long haul flight — the OP was flying from Los Angeles to Singapore, a 16 hour journey. You'd certainly need to sleep and eat at least two meals aboard a flight that long. Long flights can feel endless — you can watch several full movies, only to realize you still have eight hours left of your flight. So you…

'I had to "apologize"': Passenger encounters woman playing loud music on her phone while on an airplane

'I had to "apologize"... through gritted teeth': Passenger confronts woman playing loud music on her phone while on an airplane

Genuine question for those who play music out loud in public places : why do you do it? Whenever I see people walking around blasting music on their phones , I usually assume they don't have headphones. From my personal experience, I know how easy it is to break, lose, or forget your headphones, leaving you without audio entertainment for a day. How annoying! Maybe that person blasting music on the train works several jobs and doesn't have a lot of personal time to enjoy music in their own home…

'We're sorry for any disappointment': Dude's Twitter thread sparks online debate around popular Southwest Airlines "wheelchair scam"

Who wants to be sitting on an airline for longer than they have to? Well—due to Southwest's unique seating arrangement, where no seats are assigned, and all seats are first-come-first-serve, the less honest among us are hugely incentivized to vie for priority boarding without having to fork out extra for it. The way people do this is by asking for a wheelchair before they arrive at their gate, which qualifies them for priority boarding from the airline. This frustrated passenger hit out against…

'Karma is real': Couple gets what they deserve after harassing their chubby neighbor on a plane; flight attendants enjoy petty revenge in the form of a cold shoulder and TSA bombardment

Nobody likes being in a plane. The food is gross, the air is stale, and for some reason, you're always fighting your neighbors for every spare inch of leg room. But even when you're vying for space between an ex-football player and a woman holding a screaming newborn, it's still far worse to be caught in the cross-hairs of a Karen on a tirade.

Couple removes MIL from their house after she ruins a suitcase

'My MIL stood horrified in the middle of our living room': Couple kicks MIL from their house after she ruins a suitcase

Unpacking after a trip is something you either do as soon as you get home, or three weeks later, and those are the only options. Sometimes, you get back from a trip and put the entire suitcase away ASAP so that you can chill out and unwind after the journey. Other times, you've had so much fun that you're too tired to put away your luggage, and you just ignore it for a while until you gather the strength to put your stuff away . Anyway, this person's MIL is in that first category of people. She…

Traveling for work purposes certainly has its perks and its drawbacks. On the one hand, you get to see new parts of the world, network to expand your business, and get a break from your normal day to day life. On the other hand, you may have to travel with colleagues who you don't necessarily get along with… just like this person, u/scootindog.
