My heart sinks the second I see the seat in front recline and it's not something I'd ever do myself, you just have to accept it though
People that recline their seat tend to not do so with the intention to discomfort somebody. You don’t see that?
You prefacing you never recline reads pretty clearly as you stating your moral position on it.
If it's a feature on the airplane for other passengers to use, then they can use it if they want to. Are you going to get mad at someone if they have their window shade up and you don't want it to be for some reason? Or would you just politely ask them to close it like a normal human being?
It's fucking wild.
Lol what? Her spine was fused from this?
i don't know enough to say that it was or wasn't. from the video he looks pretty tall, i don't know what kind of damage was potentially done to his knees.
Okay I take the above back, you're just straight up condoning his antisocial physicality as justified.
What happens if someone walking next to you plays their music a little bit louder because they can't hear it over yours?I play music out loud in public via my phone (old school boom box style), especially if I'm walking a far distance by myself. If I'm in a confined space where everyone is stationary (e.g., a restaurant, bus, or train car), I obviously turn my music off. But I don't really give a fuck about other people having to hear my music walking down the street given that at max volume it is no louder than having a conversation with someone you'd be walking with.
People have to use common sense when doing things and realize that there is a time and a place (i.e., context) for things...that things don't have to be measured in absolutes.
There’s a reasonable response to any genuine and harmful discomfort (not just a minor inconvenience), and that is not what he did.
If you're not trolling there's something very wrong with your thought process here...

Good lord some of you. I can see if you're in the last row unable to recline, but I've yet to see anyone get upset by someone reclining.
the problem is, that as long as airlines allow plane seats to recline it is reasonable to believe that people will recline their seats. There is no going over the line here except for the person angrily punching the chair in front of them. Again, any reasonable person would’ve had a conversation with the person in front of them. This would be different if the person had a conversation and was still refused and reclined on, but even then punching the seat is a disproportional escalation. Emotionally stable adults shouldn’t be resorting to violence over a chair reclining in their face.
I'm not pre-recliner. I'm pro-"if someone is causing you discomfort, have a reasonable conversation about the issue instead of getting physical with them."
we don't know what kind of and/or level of pain he was in at the time. how can we be so sure that he was in the mental state to give a reasonable response?
That would make way more sense, but it sure wasn't framed that way.
If you recline your seat without taking stock of anyone or anything around you, it's like manspreading, putting your bag on a seat, or sticking your legs out on a crowded subway. Yes, you technically can do this since you paid for space like everyone else and you were there first. Sure, it is strongly suggested that it might not be polite to do these things, but there are no official rules that state you have to be polite.
I don't know, i feel there's more to this story."You clearly want me to do this quietly through a DM," she said. "I’m done being quiet! I’ve had extensive neck surgeries - my cervical spine is completely fused ... I’ve lost time at work, had to visit a doctor, got x-rays, and have (had) horrible headaches for a week," Williams wrote.
Not trolling, why allow one passenger to greatly inconvenience another? Especially in shitty airlines where a fully reclined seat actually puts pressure on your knees. I'm not extremely tall and I had flights where I was in pain and discomfort just because the asshole in front of me thought they should have a bit more comfort. I never do it because I'm not a selfish person. To me it's equivalent to one passenger stealing the food of another.
