  1. I think we’ve all seen this at least once:

    Your plane has landed. You are waiting for the boarding dock to sync and the plane door to open so you can leave the plane.

    It connects. The flight attendant signals, “You may now start getting off.”

    People begin standing to file off.

    It’s a straightforward process.

    The front row stands up, gets their stuff.

    Then the second row. Then the third row. Then the fourth row. You wait for your turn.

    Finally, it’s almost your turn.

    The row in front of you starts standing, the man on the right side pauses and waits for the old lady on the other side of the aisle to go.

    Perhaps he helps her get her bag from overhead. As I’d hope any of us would.

    Now, it is your row’s turn. You gesture to the lady on the other side to go ahead first.

    She starts to stand up.

    And before she can fully stand up, some douchebag from the row behind you pushes past her without saying a word almost knocking her back into her seat.

    I judge those guys. Instantly. Small, selfish acts like that say a lot about a person.
