I don’t want another GG Allin pissing in my face or anything, but I really agree with this.
First and foremost, the story is completely fictional. Think about it for two seconds: the lady gets in everyone’s face on the airplane EXCEPT the guy who antagonizes her, to whom she writes a perfectly well-thought-out and easily-photographable note? Wouldn’t 7A be a window seat, and in that…

Cheers.
