You are just as insistent that it is your space. So insistent that you are threatening to cough and sneeze on people if they occupy it. Yet you claim to have a problem when I simply say, actually it's my space ... the airline has given me the option to occupy that space by putting a button on my seat to allow it to recline ... I bought the ticket from the airline, not you ... therefore you have no say in what I can't do in my seat.
And the fact that you would consider having a coughing fit or a sneezing fit just to punish the person in front of you, who is not reclining to punish you, mind you, but so that they are more comfortable, with absolutely no regard for the people who are sitting in your row and next to you , shows exactly how you effing "recliner whiners" are ... passive aggressive pussays who get mad and try to punish people because they didn't put your comfort over their own ... how dare they not put your comfort over their own and make everything about you ... don't they know who you are and that the world revolves around you ... don't they know that you are the god of the airplane and as such YOU, not the airline and paying customers, will decide what occupants can and can't do ... so as to maximize your comfort at the expense of others.
It's YOUR seat, YOU can recline it all the way YOU want. It's for YOUR comfort, nevermind me.

See? It's the me me me mentality you claim to be against

Its not your personal space, its the airline's space, they own it and sell it.

. Personal space is normally defined as your own psychological definition of what is too close to a human being, not a chair.

The great airline debate of 2014. It has exceeded the 4way stop sign.

If guns killed 10,000 peeps a year and caused over 4billion in damages they would be outlawed. Why do we allow people to own these death machines? This insanity has to end

Your Digital Life: Are e-invites OK for a wedding?

&#8203;"Let me acknowledge your fiancÚ's initiative, however; I understand that electronic invitations can be more green, more efficient, more economical and less work. But what about your friends and family members (perhaps, Grandma and Grandpa!) who aren't so digitally savvy? It's one of my personal dictums that the means of communication must always keep the recipient in mind."

==========

Keep the recipient in mind? Ok. Send paper to the scant few invitees who are not connected and go digital for the rest.

Keep the recipient in mind? My phone is with me 24-7. It is constantly checking my email. I check my actual postal mailbox maybe once a week.&#8203;

"Here's another "house" rule of mine: Choose paper over digital when the message is also a keepsake."

Now that you have the seat reclining issue tabled (or seem to), what do you think of people who spill over to your seat on a flight? What do you do/say?

By "spill over" I mean have their person or items in/over your seat/leg space.
