The whole situation could be avoided if the people involved were slightly more courteous
People have started using the back of the OP's seat as a method to pull themselves up
The person who does this either does not apologize or is oblivious to their actions
The person generally expects the seat is going to provide that same resistance
Make use of your arm rests not someone else's seat
A simple apology for an oversight would be sufficient to make the OP wave it
Your injury definitely doesn't make someone else's injury irrelevant
Here's the second edit
Let the comments roll in...
This commenter likes to let them know if they want to get up
Trying to get her seat to recline
She had not yet been given her cue
It doesn't seem to make a difference
This gives an opportunity to prepare for possible physical results
Locked and loaded for the next business trip
This commenter has never taken a flight that lasted long enough
The ones that grab a handful of hair
It's best when you can hear them behind you talking
Never having to use the head rest of the seat
For this redditor, it is really well played
Commenters are eager to test out this new power move. The next time one of these obnoxious people sits behind me, I, for one, know I'll be using this power move.
What do you think about this? Do you employ this tactic?
Do you take your seat with pride? Please tell us in the comments.
