What did people ever do in the days without social media.

I think it was both ridiculous and pointless for her to write the open letter to him because he clearly doesn't care and considering he told her on the plane that he didn't think he was wrong, he's clearly not the type to even do any introspection regarding his behavior. More importantly, she shouldn't allow some random childish jerk's opinion of her affect her so deeply. However, I certainly can understand her being pissed because some people act like they can't stand the idea that anyone who's even remotely overweight has the audacity to walk around breathing the same air that they do, let alone sit beside them. Your comment: "Yet another another incident with obese people and airplanes..." is complete nonsense in this situation. This woman is not obese, and she certainly doesn't look like she'd be spilling over into the next person's seat. Is there even any mention of her taking up any room in his seat? I didn't see any, just that he saw her boarding, called her a "2 ton woman" (talk about idiotic hyperbole), and said the situation was not good. He made his judgment about her before she had even reached her seat. There's a big difference between someone who's obese to the point that they are literally spilling over into your seat and infringing upon your personal space, and someone who happens to be larger than your personal preference so you've decided they're unworthy of merely being in your presence. Some of you people seriously need to get over yourselves.

But not WHEN SHE'S TAKING UP PART OF HIS SEAT on a flight! And then to go on to comment she wishes she could have taken up even more of his seat?

How can she be so obtuse?
I don't think it was about her "taking part of his seat." She's not really all that big, and he started text-whining to his bro before she even sat down, before he even knew she'd be seated next to him.

She was way too defensive but probably still full of post-partum hormones so whatever.

Anyway, what she achieved, was announcing to the world via her page, that a fellow passenger thought she was fat. She's shaming herself, at this point.

Not very bright.
She's an idiot, looking for her 3 seconds of fame.

I'm tired of passive-aggressive open letters posted online to garner sympathy in a conflict that wasn't meant to happen and should have been over a long time ago.

The whole "sacred mom" thing...don't get it. My sister does it and it drives me nuts. She's the same self-absorbed woman she was before she duplicated. Since when did producing viable offspring raise any female to one-step-lower-than-the-angels status???

Yes, there are lots of terrible mothers out there, so not sure why motherhood should put a woman in any different light.

In this case, she is a very new mom and was saying that plays a role in any excess weight she's carrying. She was probably also sleep deprived and hormonal. Yeah, it was bad judgement on her part to have a hissy about it and put it on the internet, but that doesn't make her a terrible person.

Gawd. Another attention ***** using the "mother" card. She's as obnoxious as the perpetrator of her victimization.

Every airline seat should be equipped with one of these: CREATE-A-SPACE

They'd be even better if they were shoulder height. Problems solved. :-)
