Any flight attendants here? They must see more than their fair share of Special Snowflakes.
I was flying from Baltimore to Oregon, and I'd made very sure to get reservations early enough to get an aisle seat. I know that on a flight that long, I'll have to visit the lavatory at least twice, and if my IBS flares up, possibly more.
So I get on the plane, and there's someone in my seat. I check my boarding pass and the seat row. Yep, SS has parked herself in 19-C. "Excuse me, you have my seat."
SS says, "Oh, I'm going to sit here with my friends. I'm sure you won't mind sitting in 23-E, will you?" (23-E is, of course, a center seat.)
I had my mouth open to say "Yes, I do mind" when the flight attendant stepped in and told SS in no uncertain terms "No, you will move to your own seat. The lady reserved an aisle because she wants an aisle." SS started in with the standard whining, and the FA said "Miss, you will move or you will be removed from the plane." SS flounced off to her own seat, and her friends gave me very hurt looks and the cold shoulder. Maybe they thought it would make me weep all the way across the country. I just thanked the FA and ignored them.
How many episodes of SS Seatstealerus do you suppose she sees for her radar to pick one up within microseconds?
