Getting the middle seat on an airplane – aka the “short straw” – means you get to use BOTH armrests .

But now another one has erupted after one female passenger’s actions were called out on social media.

So where do you stand on this?

The woman in question was captured on camera with her hair draped over the back of the seat, obscuring the TV screen for the person behind.

We know how we’d feel about this (clue: Not positively), but not everyone seethed with righteous anger.

Another suggestion read: “Just go play with her hair and annoy her until she turns around and tell you to cut it. Consent accepted.”

And another added: “It’s revolting… and you can’t tell me they don’t know what they are doing. Unless of course they are that stupid.”

 

That said, not everyone took umbrage to the woman’s hair placement. One man pointed out that he person sitting behind woman was reading a book so they didn’t need their screen anyway.

And another wrote: “Not sure why some people sit and fester over issues and take the time to take a photo and post – what happened to just politely explaining the infringement on your person space is not acceptable. If you get off your phone and talk to people you can actually meet some nice people.”

Which is a fair point.
