The New York Times: Apparently most of my friends see the man who was asked to deplane a United Airlines flight as the Rosa Parks of anti-corporatism. Yet I see him as a brat throwing a temper tantrum -- going limp like a 2-year-old to make things as difficult as possible -- when asked to do something he felt was unfair. (Who does that?) I'm more anti-corporation than anyone I know, but I also understand that the only reason our "civil" society works is because we have all agreed to act a certain way and without that, we'd be living in utter chaos. (I've flown Avianca and Colombians apparently have not agreed to the same rules of the air we have, so everyone was standing and walking around during take-off and landing and I nearly had a stroke!) As we learned on 9/11, planes are not someplace to be fucking around. If a crew member asks you to do something, do it. Getting bumped sucks. (That's why there's compensation.) And the way they handled it -- asking people to leave after they were on-board was shitty as can be. But there was still no reason this man couldn't argue his case off the plane or at the very least standing like an adult.
