Reclining Whining (Hospitality Fatality)
I always seem to sit behind the airline passenger who reclines the seat into my lap. I'm not talking about a gentle 15 degree recline. I'm talking about a barcalounger-footrest-extended 60 degree recline. As far back as the seat will go. And then, there are the barbarians who add random jostling to insure that I lose even more comfort space. Is there anyone reading this who can explain to me how this, albeit airline-licensed, practice is hospitable? I'm willing to be educated. Or better yet, let's change places and I'll fly in your lap.
