To my neighbor in seat 27F:
I get it. You like to read. Your gigantic Kindle was already on and in your lap when I arrived in our row. You clicked through page after page as the plane slowly boarded. And when they made the announcement that all electronic devices needed to be shut down for takeoff, you continued to read. I thought at first that maybe you didn’t hear the announcement, or perhaps were so engrossed in your book that you forgot you were reading it on an electronic device. But no. When the flight attendant came by, you flipped the case cover up, so it looked like you were reading from a large leather portfolio, which was a dick move, if you’ll pardon my French.
Now, I can understand if you think it’s a stupid rule. And I agree, it kind of is. But when you buy a ticket on a plane, you agree to abide by the rules of the airline and the FAA. If you can’t stop reading long enough to abide by the rules that come with your seat, then maybe the Kindle isn’t for you. Go back to paper.
