The Many Indignities of Air Travel

So I’m coming down the aisle of a crowded plane with a backpack on my back.

The guy in front of me was putting up his suitcase in the overhead bin, but the only open one was apparently past his assigned seat. Therefore he had to go back up the aisle after stowing his luggage.

But of course when he turned around I was right there behind him.

I could not turn around in that narrow aisle with a backpack on, so I had to simply back up.

And my giant butt was hitting people from behind as I backed up.

So I started beeping like a truck in reverse until I got the right spot.

People were cracking up. I’m like, Wide load, people!! Coming through!!

You know, it’s amazing how air travel can humiliate you in ways you never thought possible.
