Nothing gets people more passionate than questions of proper airplane etiquette.

Perhaps being locked in a cramped metal room tends to make people a bit cranky.


The Rich Eisen Show probably knew this when they posed a question to Twitter that quickly went viral.

The show's Twitter account asked:

"does the person sitting in the middle seat on airplane [sic] get both armrests?"

Boy, did people have some opinions about that.


Some people thought the middle seat should go without both armrests...

...but most believed the most cramped chair deserved the most arm space.



On Twitter, the debate raged with fiery passion!

Fortunately, many people stated the matter had long been decided upon by comedian Jim Jefferies.



Jefferies himself even chimed in on the argument.

A few alternate approaches were suggested.


But, in the end, most people came around to the middle-seat way of thinking.


For people who still haven't conceded in the great armrest war, you can get a portable airplane armrest divider (no, really) here.

And at least there's one thing we can ALL agree on:
