Ryan and I got home from a wedding in Mexico. It was really pretty, warm weather, and the couple looked relaxed and happy.
As we were in the air for 4 hours, I thought about a controversial airplane etiquette situation: reclining of the seat. I have NEVER in my 29 years of life reclined my seat on an airplane. I don't know why this is. Perhaps my mother never let us touch that little button when we were younger?
Because of my own aversion to airplane reclining, it physically angers me when the person in front of me reclines their seat. Now some may say that a simple solution would be to recline my seat, the person behind me could recline theirs, etc. etc. However, what about that poor person in the very last seat who does not have the option to recline? I just can't bring myself to do it. I don't want to sound like Mother Teresa, but I can't justify placing my own comfort on the effing airplane before a stranger's.
Am I missing out? Is it really that more comfortable? I would like to hear your thoughts.
