I am sure he was the innocent bystander that in a quivering voice said "ok" when they asked him to leave. I doubt he was rude or disagreed or fought with them about the policy they have written out and he agreed to when he purchased the ticket. Im sure they bullied him into finally getting off 15 minutes after the stated departure time. Poor fella.

A lot of ignorance around here. I'll admit I'm obese, not to the point of having to pay for two airline seats, but I'm not slim. Imagine having an addiction to food instead of drugs or alcohol. You are dependant on food. You can't just quit cold turkey.

Once I had someone mention I was close to encroaching on his space. I mentioned I'd gladly help him forget his discomfort for the flight and raised my fist. Didn't hear a peep and I'll continue to use that tactic.

Yeah, you and me would be fighting then. I always prefer to get beaten to # than back down to threats of violence in real life.
Yeah, I'd so so happily fight to keep your fat muffin-tops out of my contractually agreed and paid for seat.

I have always been amazed by people that are incapable of sitting next to a stranger. I went to the movies with a coworker the other day and he actually left a seat open between us. I looked at him like he was insane and told him to move his ass next to me.

I have always been the opposite and love meeting new people. I pepper them with questions but they always shut their eyes and mumble. Doesn't deter me though! I keep pestering them until they wake up and talk to me! I wish they would stop calling TSA on me I don't know what that's all about. So rude.

You physically threaten someone that is concerned with you stealing their space? And brag about it?

hate sitting next to people.
i dont go to the movies often. it does happen though and my wife and i always try to take great care of where to sit based on where people are in the theater at the time.
of course more people file in and they love to sit near is in our aisle or an aisle up or down from us.
then of course we have to move our seats.
i do that a few times till everyone has filed in and i can sit in the most quiet and isolated of spaces left.

Whatever, we are unlikely to ever find ourselves in a situation where your fat is pushing into my airplane seat.
At least we know how we'd both respond now

That's terrible man, in that I hate that people are that uncomfortable. I understand that my personality is a lot more open than most. I think it was a defense mechanism when I was younger than just got used to it and learned to enjoy it. I was joking about the second half of my post obviously but I have always been able to talk to anyone and find something in common to put us on common ground. It has been a real asset in my professional life. Hell of a sales man If I do say so.

I'm 6'5 290 lbs. 42 inch wait. I have leg room problems more than fitting into the width of a seat. I wasn't near intruding on his space and that was the point. The guy I said that to is probably one of you.

Leg space is still someone's paid for space. I hate sitting next to a guy (and I'm a guy) that feels he has to spread his legs into others space.

And all you people who are crying "medical condition" need to let the airline, busline, taxi etc. know about your condition BEFORE you board!!!!!!!

Yeah he is probably one of "us" I am sure. Those of us that want what we paid for and aren't afraid to tell jerks what that is. I am sure you were no where near his space, and just decided he wanted to test your manhood. You Alpha'd him down though bro, just like you have to do to everyone in life that messes with you for no reason.

I for one will watch my mouth around you, I don't need that in my life. At least I am scared of you online. I still have this niggling feeling you aren't as threatening in real life. I will go with safe than sorry though and assume you must be my better, why else would you make it so clear how bad ass you are? Play golf AND basketball? Little judo experience? No thanks I do t want any part of fighting a golfer/baller.

Nobody has been speaking about you in this thread, you clearly are a medical exception, but the overwhelming majority of fat people are not.


How do you know? How do you know this man wasn't overweight for a medical reason?


Even if he has a medical condition. Get him a bigger seat. The airline pays for it or he pays more. But he isn't sitting in the seat that I payed for. It should be considered a safety issue.

I know they didn't have this problem before they started putting cattle fatten up food for human consumption. It isn't my problem.

I will always try and pick an isle seat so in case leg room is the issue I can have my one knee in the isle. However, since I travel for work, I am sometimes booked last minute and don't have much of a say.

Lol. This is all on the airlines. People through history on average have become bigger, but airlines have made the seats smaller and leg room less. My shoulders stick out further and I'll always to try accomodate. But, if you are a dick about it, prepare to get it right back.

You'd think some sort of technology can be built to have an adjustable isle of seating to accomodate everyone.

No, I'm not a 'baller'. I'm just stating I am active and have been in my share of battles.

Hmmm, I would have thought that the abilities of good ball-handling skills and how to grip a shaft were a bit more critical to activities other than fisticuffs.

Sometimes you need practice holding a shaft with two hands.
