Nick Bockwinkel, cool as all get out.
This Man Is Hilariously Live-Tweeting His Flight-and-Feud With The Woman in #7A (with images, tweets)
This Thanksgiving the Internet is thankful for Elan Gale, Twitter and the Woman in #7A.
I’m having trouble reconciling people I know cheering on a guy for antagonizing a woman who’s obviously a bit unbalanced and telling her via notes, publicly on twitter, and to her face to “eat [his] dick.”
It’s not as if her behavior is excusable. It’s not. In fact, it’s abhorrent, especially the way she treats the staff.
But what was done in this situation that diffused it? Is he a hero for further antagonizing her and making things more difficult and complicated for the staff?
I can get if he felt the need to stick up for the flight crew, and I can certainly empathize. But the hill I can’t get over is when he starts telling her repeatedly to “eat [his] dick.” She was being disruptive and abusive to staff, but even through his interpretation of events, she comes across more as mentally unbalanced than entitled. Don’t get me wrong: that’s not a “get out of jail free” card by any means. But, you know, there’s such a thing as being the adult in a situation.
Sometimes it’s appropriate to stand up for what is right and speak “truth to power.” That’s not what it seems like this guy was doing.
Again…idunno. Maybe it’s just me.
