What would you have done?

On one leg of my flight I was sitting by the window and this man was sitting next to me and he kept elbowing me in my side and even up higher on my side where my bra is.

Now I'm not a skinny gal but I fit just fine in the seat, I don't spill over and the arm rest goes completely down between the two of us and he wasnt a fat man either. He was just a really tall broad man and he was reading the newspaper.

It was a 2 hour flight and the plane was full, they actually asked for volunteers to take the next flight home.

He wasnt hurting me but it was annoying as hell, I really enjoy my personal space and I don't like strangers touching me.

He also didn't speak English, it was on the flight from Sweden to London and I assume he was speaking Swedish, I never heard him say anything in English.

So what would you have done had you been in my shoes?

Then only time I have been on a flight and not minded the person beside me bumping me was when it was my family. Then are not that big and it happens a lot. I just ignore it unless it is really hurting me. Because I know there is not much space on a plane.

1 mom liked this

about the third time it happened, I would look at him and say "excuse me!"  that is pretty understandable.  I would also bet that he spoke perfect English, almost every industrialized nation teaches it along with the native language.

I did just ignore it because I knew he wasn't doing it on purpose but at the same time I kept thinking can't you be more careful jackass!!!!

If it was annoying you alot I would have said something to the flight attendant, although planes are small, so they most likely couldnt do anything unless they found someone willing to change seats with you

Yea, I know what you mean. I am careful to not to. But when I do I say sorry and when I do. The person has always been nice and told me not to worry about it. There is not much room.

Politely pushed his elbow away from my person.

I do the same thing, if I accidentally touch someone I apologize and the person is usually very nice about it.
