"If the person in front of me reclines her seat, so help us all."
If you ask Delta what happened on Flight 2370, they will say it was diverted to Jacksonville “due to safety reasons in regard to a passenger issue,” but that is just code for "some lady lost her goddamn mind."
Flight 2370 was supposed to be a non-stop route from NYC to Palm Bech, but then some lady went bitchcakes when the woman who was sitting in front of her had the audacity to recline her seat. Apparently, the crazed woman was trying to sleep on the tray table and was woken up when the back of the chair undoubtably slammed into her head.
Fellow passenger Aaron Klipin was sitting next to the seat recliner when it all went down, and told WPTV, "This woman who was sitting next to me knitting actually tried reclining her seat back and the woman behind her started screaming and swearing and the flight attendant came over and that just exacerbated what was going on, and then she demanded that the flight land."
I totally get it, lady. I hate being woken up too soon, too. But, when you're thousands of feet in the air on a plane that is carrying a bunch of other people, you have to pull it together. Demanding the flight be landed isn't just totally bat shit crazy, it's just plain rude.
