After an enjoyable holiday, a person found themselves on a three-hour flight back home. The traveler was concerned about dehydration on the plane, but little did they know that their attempts to rehydrate would cause a far bigger problem.
The Middle Seat
Being a budget-conscious traveler, the person had booked a middle seat. This was by far the cheapest option, and they were indifferent to the preference of aisle or window.
Hydration Plan in Motion
Aware of the dehydrating effects of air travel, the individual packed two 40oz water bottles, intending to stay adequately hydrated throughout the flight. They were also an athlete and a sizable person, so their hydration needs were substantial.
Inconvenient Pit Stops
As the flight progressed, the traveler realized they needed to use the bathroom. They made four trips in total, each time disturbing the person sitting in the aisle seat next to them. “She would sigh, groan, roll her eyes, etc. whenever I got up”, the person wrote.
A Request for Reprieve
Upon returning from the third bathroom trip, the person in the aisle seat had a request: “She asked me if I could hold it for the remainder of the flight so she could sleep”, they explained.
A Rude Awakening
However, the traveler had to venture to the bathroom for the fourth time, and the person in the aisle seat confronted them. They declared the person’s actions as rude for not heeding the earlier request. In response, the individual explained their options – dehydration, wetting themselves, or using the restroom.
An Intrusive Question
The situation escalated when the person in the aisle seat questioned the individual about a potential bladder issue. Unwilling to share personal health information, the individual curtly dismissed the inquiry.
In an attempt to find a solution, the traveler offered to switch seats with the annoyed passenger, eliminating the need to climb over her. However, the offer was rejected. As the confrontation continued, the individual suggested involving a flight attendant to mediate the dispute.
The Flight Attendant’s Verdict
Once the flight attendant became involved, they sided with the traveler, recognizing that the issue stemmed from their basic need for hydration.
A Family Divide
After telling their story back home, the person’s family had mixed opinions. Some supported their right to stay hydrated and felt they had done nothing wrong, while others considered it discourteous to consume that much water during a flight, especially when the person in the aisle was trying to rest.
The individual felt that they had done nothing wrong, so they headed online, hoping that internet readers would offer validation. However, readers were overwhelmingly criticizing the traveler. “Once or twice, sure”, accepted one reader. “But 4 times in 3 hours is ridiculous. You should have booked an aisle seat if you planned on drinking an insane amount of water.”
Too Much Hydration
Most people agreed that the traveler’s hydration concerns were over the top. “Three hours on a plane isn’t going to dehydrate you enough to harm you”, someone pointed out. “If you plan on doing this on your next flight, pay for the aisle seat or get ready to have another angry seatmate.”
In response to the traveler’s requests for validation, commenters were not accommodative. “Nope – this is your fault for being inconsiderate to your seatmate based on some irrational aversion to being slightly dehydrated”, accused one commenter.
Wear a Diaper
Many people berated the traveler, with some sarcastically suggesting extreme solutions. “Do you have a bladder issue?”, asked a frustrated reader. “Maybe next time wear an adult diaper if you continue to insist on acting like a child! Four times in three hours just for the sake of it is baby behavior.”
