I like to think of myself of a positive person and more importantly, a good traveler. I have to be honest with you (as it’s the best policy): people who save seats on Southwest flights bug me.
Folks, we are NOT in second grade. Sitting sideways with your leg on a seat is not adult behavior. It’s one thing if you have a friend coming to sit with you (although s/he should have just boarded with you), but it’s another story if you are flying solo.
Just because you checked in before me doesn’t give you authority to box me or our fellow flyers out. Do like these brothers and sit in the same seat. It’s a win-win. No one has to sit in the middle seat.
I feel much better.
