Traveling again

I'm in Southern California this week. My flight here was interesting. A mom and dad and their three year old girl sat next to me. They had purchased a ticket for the little girl, and there was one empty seat in the plane, but they decided to put the little girl on their lap and crowd in on two seats.

Now, I know some of you are thinking - why didn't you offer your window seat up to these people so they could all sit together instead of bitching.

Well, I'll tell you why - this family was late. They were the very last people on board. The guy who was originally sitting next to me gave up his seat for them.
(I was in the first group on board, and I went for my favored seat, the window seat in the last row).

I can be comfortable in a window seat or an aisle seat, but not in a middle seat - and that was all that was left.

I don't get to the airport in time so I can have the worst seat in the plane. 3+ hours of sitting next to 3 people with crayons, books, dolls, etc., getting thrown on me was not fun.

So people, if you are flying with your children, get to the airport early and preboard, so you can get comfortable without making some other poor soul miserable.
