You board a plane, walk confidently to your seat, and to your chagrin, find someone already seated comfortably there. What would you do? Look for another seat? Draw the attention of onboard flight attendants? Engage in a shoutfest?

I stumbled on this Nigerian's hilarious narration of how he dealt with a seat usurper on a flight he boarded.

It's funny and eye-opening.

I wonder why people like doing that...

I love the window seats & usually pick them in advance of my flight even when if it means paying in advance...

There was a time I was flying back to New York City via United Airlines & has to pay $52 for a Window seat & extra legroom...

By the time, I got on the plane a lady had already taken my seat even though our seating arrangement were clearly printed on our flight ticket...

I had to call the attention of one of the flight attendants to move her away from my seat...

I cannot let my $52 to go like that...

The worst part of the whole issue was her trying to claim she is right the whole thing time...

Assuming she explained politely to me that they were traveling together as a group & wanted to seat together maybe I might have changed my mind & let her have my window seat but her attitude left a lot to be desired & as a result I had to act...

I hate aisle seat especially when flying on a long distance flights, window seats are always my favorites...

I usually pay in advance of my flight to guarantee my window seat reservation...

I don't know what I would have done if I were in the same position because I hate being a negative center of attraction (forget my jaguda online. Ayam a gentle porson grin), but I do know that I hate being pushed around. Some people just don't respect themselves.

The air staff themselves sometimes aid and abet this nonsense. The one time it happened to me, I was too ill and exhausted to argue so I quietly went to look for an empty seat. I had chosen a prime window seat in the middle row, but when I boarded, the air hostess said it's 'free seating' or whatever. I was so pissed

I have never understood why Nigerians like bringing age to any matter.

Whenever you have issue with any dull Nigerian and they run out of something reasonable to say they'll start saying "I no be your mate" Like wtf.

And some feel entitled to many privileges like collecting daily greeting from the entire neighborhood.

Who has age ever helped? Them dey use am collect money for bank?

They should go and ask Methuselah what he did wit all his age. If Methuselah were these Nigerians I'm sure he'll declare himself king of kings

I agree with the young man because African mentality makes us forget simple protocols. What we can’t try outside our shores we do here in the name of tradition or customs or whatever sentiments. Even the air hostesses doesn’t know her job.

My problem with him is I don’t know what Olisah Metuh has to do with his matter. Probably just humor.

No cause for alarm bring out your ticket and recheck your seat number to reconfirm and if you find out its accurate show the person seating there to check his/her too and if its same call the attention of the air hostess and case close cos they will sort it out before departure otherwise we are not leaving that damn place or take any flight until the right thing is done. Protocol is meant to be observed irrespective of age and status cool
