She came over to my row and asked if she could sit by Can we just play dnd shirt. I said no. I’m not feeling well, I specifically requested a row which was otherwise empty and I also wanted the luxury that she had just afforded her little girl to stretch out and sleep. No, I didn’t feel bad because I don’t see why I should inconvenience myself to please you when you clearly made a decision to make your family member comfortable. Find somewhere else to sit everything after I’m not feeling well, I said to myself. Sometimes it’s fine to make accommodations like, I would give up my aisle seat for someone who needs to get up a lot because they’re not feeling well or they need to frequent the toilet.
I’m not suffering the same. But I wouldn’t give up my window seat for a Can we just play dnd shirt if I wanted to sleep nor would I give up my aisle seat for a middle seat to accommodate a request like the one you had, especially if it’s a long haul flight. You plan for these things! I understand that sometimes you don’t get seats together as a family during the check in process but if you have that need, check-in early, get to the airport early or ask the crew for accommodations. Don’t inconvenience others for your poor planning. She can get upset all she wants, better her than you I’d say!
