Consulting

What is the best course of action when the person sitting next to you on the plane is so large/fat/both that you can’t even sit with your shoulder tucked in without their shoulder bumping into you?

Have empathy for them as it must be very uncomfortable for them in that seat.

I promise you nothing you can say to me is worse than what I’ve said to myself in my head.

Dude I had the same thing happen a few days ago, except the guy next to me was so big and was sitting with his hands on the tray table so my right shoulder was directly in his armpit.. let’s just say my shoulder wasn’t exactly dry during the flight

I say “excuse me you are in my personal space do you mind moving over a bit”. Usually they are shocked and look at me like I’m crazy but I just give them a death glare until they move

I’d like to be considerate and sensitive to these kind of things but it’s happened so happened so frequently in the last half year that I can’t just keep these thoughts to myself It’s one thing to neglect one’s own health but it’s selfish when it begins affecting others

I would stand in the back of the plane if allowed

I had a similar experience but if a person is that fat I presume they must have some serious mental illness, eating disorder, or trauma in their past so I figure I shouldn’t add to their burden

Try walking up to a flight attendant away from your seat and explain your audition + ask if there is another seat available. I’d imagine most attendants would be sympathetic if you don’t sound like a douche

Went to topgolf tonight. If it’s open, I’m going. Quarantine everything non-essential if you want compliance. I had a great time.

Proud of the way R/GA has handled this situation thus far. We still have a lot of work to do to continue to build our culture and break thru our internal/external challenges, but nice one on this.
