Polite society requires rules and a bit of decency towards others. Many people have become too interested in what is in it for them and completely ignore the needs, feelings, and even existence of those around them. This is seen time and again in people fighting in airports, being removed from planes, and generally just acting foolish with little to no regard for those around themselves.
A video posted to Instagram by user @shigga__ shows the “me first” attitude that is so pervasive. In it, a passenger seated at the back of the plane jumps up upon landing (and the seatbelt sign being turned off) and charges forward ahead of dozens of passengers. He even cuts around some in the aisle. The video has over 741,000 likes. That in itself shows a problem. Luckily, there is some sense here and many of the 22,813 comments call out his behavior as “the problem” and not right.
I’m sorry, but young children even know that there are lines, they function by joining the back of the line and working your way forward, and that there is no cutting. The only exception here is for connecting passengers in jeopardy of missing a flight. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard flight attendants implore passengers to let those with connections off first only to be completely ignored.
Anthony’s Take: Had I been on this plane and in front of this passenger, I would not have let him pass. I’m surprised that other passengers did not get annoyed and try to block him. If no one says anything, then he will do this again. Just rude and unnecessary.
