Titled Airplane Passenger Inspire Fun Yarn On Center Seat Armrest Tag

Most people like to travel by plane. The packing, the first few trips to the airport and finally those breathtaking views out the windows – it’s all pretty exciting. Sure, some fear the fate of Chuck Nolan from 2000’s survival drama Cast Away, though generally things turn out just fine.

However, not everyone is a fan of airplanes, and maybe even humans in general. Some people are so daring that they really make you question your whole existence. It seems that enduring and taming your negativity isn’t that hard when you have to share a giant flying machine for a few hours – even though Rachel Handler, the author of this humorous thread, found herself sitting right next to it from a very authoritative traveler:

The woman took to Twitter to hilariously share her rather amusing encounter with another passenger, who decided to voice concern about the plane’s armrest tag. The thread managed to receive over 81,000 likes and nearly 4.2,000 retweets, likely leaving netizens laughing for days.

Traveling is fine, unless you have to put up with sitting next to an ignorant passenger for several hours

The world is full of surprising individuals, and you never know who you’ll end up meeting on your way. Some might pleasantly surprise you with their overwhelming kindness – others will find every way to irritate you, even if they’re obviously wrong. Additionally, some people are strangely oblivious to everything around them and often believe that they are always entitled to everything on our planet. However, the best way to deal with individuals like this is to make an entertaining joke out of the situation – just like the author did.

The woman began her humorous thread by announcing that her co-passenger aloud, and appears deliberately aimed directly at Apple’s Siri, asking the system to reveal the rules of etiquette from the plane’s middle seat. She then made sure to point Google searches to the author, revealing that she was “legally” entitled to both armrests, essentially prohibiting the woman from lowering her arms.

Naturally, the woman was intrigued by such provocative behavior, as everything could have been sorted out without having to disturb the poor bot. Moreover, the passenger revealed that she had worked for Boeing for 20 years and was absolutely and completely sure that she was legally correct. Later, the woman hilariously revealed that her very law-abiding seatmate managed to tilt her seat before takeoff – which, in fact, wasn’t so legal.

Minutes later, the woman was back with another update weighing in that she is, of course, aware of “armrest etiquette” and normally follows the rules, unless the nobody in question involves virtual assistants. Also, as one would expect, the lady who likes to keep things legal didn’t stop there and continued to bother the OP by poking his arm every few minutes. Finally, when the author had had enough, she politely asked her co-passenger to stop touching her as she wasn’t trying to secretly steal his precious armrest, to which the woman responded by saying that she didn’t want to argue over nonsense. .

Additionally, the author revealed a spicy detail regarding his seatmate’s interesting behavior and mentioned that when the crew moved around to greet appreciated members, someone approached the woman and they had a little chat. But as soon as the conversation was over, the woman turned to her daughter and announced that she absolutely despises knowing people on airplanes. The OP then hilariously added that she was absolutely sure our beloved Armrest was capable of homicide and had the audacity to start snoring (which is also illegal, of course).

The next few updates were full of the woman’s exceptional jokes, where she even incorporated a little FAQ revealing that she didn’t steal armrests and that during this extremely difficult situation she managed to age 17 whole years. Additionally, she also mentioned that instead of sleeping, she was watching a sponsored feature, followed by this lovely and informative video that revealed the impact stress levels have on people’s immune systems.

In the end, probably after a number of comments from other followers that his co-passenger was right, the OP revealed that there were no federal laws regarding center seat armrests, as well as the fact that once the plane landed, the chaotic passenger directed his delicious energy towards a car rental company, which even managed to trigger his own daughter to the point where she indirectly called her mother a psychopath.

Other Twitter users shared their opinions on this comical and somewhat annoying situation.
