A Viral Tweet About Airplane Armrests Has Sparked A Heated Debate About Proper 'Plane Etiquette'

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:

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.

Even just in the past decade, items that used to seem too luxurious or expensive for "average" people to purchase are now incredibly affordable. And inaccessible produce and personal hygiene products are close to a distant memory.

It's fun to think back about how far we've come.
