A character meant to be self-involved and ignorant is one thing, making blatantly cruel jokes is another. I hear shit like that and it's humiliating...I can't imagine how I'd feel if I actually saw the show and heard this exchange in front of my friends/family. People laughing at that are laughing at me and it's hurtful.
Yeahhhh, it’s shitty. That’s pretty much what I was trying to point out.
The character is an ignorant, self-involved person and the show is about her bettering herself, yes. But people like her get away with that kind of ignorance because they’re conventionally attractive.
I'm thinking of going on a mini-vacation next summer, and I'm trying to compare travel. When it comes to flying, my biggest fear is that I'll pay for one seat and then be forced to pay for the one next to it or be kicked off the flight because of my size. What do you about seating, and do you have any other advice about flying? (it'd be my first flight ever)
I’m about 5’8”, wear about a 26/28 and carry most of my weight in my belly. Occasionally I have to wear a seat belt extender. I have my own but you can always ask a flight attendant for one as soon as you board. I also do pre-boarding to get myself situated before everyone else gets there. Hate having to rush to my seat and climb over people and blehhh…
The seats all very in size but are still tiny none the less. That shouldn’t stop you from flying though. I recommend either getting a window seat (so you can squish yourself up against the window) or getting an exit row seat for more leg room. Only thing that sucks about exit row is that you have to pay extra for it, you can’t recline and the arms don’t raise up. The aisle before the exit row doesn’t recline as well, so I don’t recommend that one.
If you fly with Southwest, I’ve heard you can purchase two seats and after your trip they refund the amount of the second seat. Not sure how fast the refund works though.
I usually fly US Airways or United. Flew Delta this past August for the first time and they were comfy for the most part, just had way too many delays. US Airways is what I prefer.
All the airlines have their measurements posted online. So I recommend looking those up.
