'Any discomfort is the result of their own choices': Traveller insists on reclining their airline seat to get back at poorly-behaved toddler

'Any discomfort is the result of their own choices': Traveller insists on reclining their airline seat to get back at poorly-behaved toddler

Parents who travel with young kids deserve a medal of some sort. Going to the airport as an adult can be a stressful experience on its own, let alone bringing along your 15-month-old who loves screaming and throwing handfuls of Cheerios. Lots of people will see your kiddo and give you a smile, because kids are super cute. What's less cute is a toddler who is on your actual flight . The little ones just can't sit still! They want to run around and play. They can't understand why they're expected…

Karen accosts flight attendant, scraps with pilot, gets kicked off plane

It's often the case that love blossoms from the most unexpected places, and you might think it surprising that this couple, a flight attendant and a pilot, would bond over a confrontation with an entitled Karen. The Karen was demanding that the flight attendant upgrade her to first class, mistaking her for a gate agent. This escalated to a point where the pilot of the flight, who was passing by for boarding, felt the need to step in. In her fury, Karen attempted to lash out at the pilot, which…

'Pilot: "I'm not flying this"': Airline industry workers share the wildest things they've ever seen

The ordeal of air travel opens the doorway for some insane behaviors. You have groups of complete strangers who are collectively sleep-deprived, stressed, and overstimulated, crammed into far-too-small spaces for far too long. Air travelers usually have a lot riding on the success of their trip, too, and literally can't afford for things to go sideways, with holidaygoers having spent their literal life savings and cashed in all of their PTO in order to make this trip work—usually also facing un…

'I followed the travel policy': Worker exploits company's travel policy loophole to book more expensive tickets and fly first class

Restrictive policies are often written with a singular use case in mind, with the authoring manager's short-sighted and horse-blinded perspective generally resulting in the policy not being as cost-saving as intended in the first place and leaving ample opportunity for loopholes and malicious compliance.

'Was I in the wrong?': Tall angry dude insists that he deserves woman's airline seat that she paid for

Air travel creates opportunities for some interesting social interactions that you wouldn't find elsewhere in life. Part of that is people tend to be pretty stressed out, even long before they actually manage to get seated on the flight. What with waking up early to get to the airport with ample time with ample anxiety owing to the uncertainty of queue times that can range from mere minutes to hours depending on the day… Following, you have to get undressed for security, parting your belongings…

'I won't sign, come back later': Deputy project manager costs company $250k

'I won't sign, come back later': Deputy project manager rejects requests and ignores emails, costs company $250k

Working in logistics is an underappreciated job — this person's work wasn't appreciated until everything started going off the rails. When roles switch around in a company, things around bound to slip between the cracks. Especially when there are bosses like this guy, the deputy project manager on an Australian pipeline project. As he stepped in to replace the regular project manager , he didn't quite know who was responsible for which tasks. The OP of this story writes that their regular proje…

'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…

AITA: "Manspreading" plane passenger gets roasted by readers for in-flight behavior

I feel like this is one of those AITA posts where the user probably knows what the judgment will be before they even ask. Still, whether or not they were in the wrong was decided when they chose to use a term like “manspreading” in the title. After that, the conversation was only going to go in one direction. I'm going to go ahead here and say that I don't agree with Reddit's decision. Yes, dear reader, that might surprise you, but I don't think this Original Poster was in the wrong. This state…

'He refused [to move]': Entitled couple steals Large Gal's second seat on flight that she paid for

A woman purchased herself an extra seat on her flight for her own comfort and security. She explains in her story that she is a fairly large gal and prefers using this method when she travels so that she can have a comfortable distance from other people. Unfortunately, not everyone is so careful and considerate, and it wasn't long before an entitled couple showed up and decided to help themselves to the extra seat. The girlfriend was seated next to Large Gal's second seat, and the boyfriend dec…
