Hot Topics: Reclining on Airplanes
It's Wednesday. That means it's Hot Topics day here at Ask Angie. However, my brain is fried and I am a little bleary eyed from too much travel to take on a substantive issue so it's time to do a poll!! Yay! Please look over to your left. Today's poll in inspired by all my travel:
When do you recline on an airplane?
- All the time - It's part of the "space" you purchased with your ticket
- Only on long flights
- Only when the person in front of me does
- Never - it's bad karma.
I tend not to recline just because it drives me crazy when the person in front of me does it. Especially when he hits the resistance of my knees and then flings his entire body weight against the seat to try to get it to go back more and I yell ouch! and then everyone feels uncomfortable but he still keeps trying to force the seat to recline more. Hypothetically, of course.
So what do you think? Weigh in at the poll on the left and leave your comments below.
