Cunning isn’t all that awful, particularly when viewed in the perspective of global society. If cleverness crosses the line into arrogance and unscrupulousness, if a person obviously displeases others with their conduct, approbation turns to wrath, and we delight when excessive cunning is punished. And stories like these are much more popular. Instant karma, so it goes. Read the story below to know what happened during this flight journey.
So, last summer I went on vacation in Greece for a whole month. It was so great to see all my friends again after a year (I am half Greek half Dutch and have been living in the Netherlands for 5 years). To fly back home takes a whole day because of connective flights and such. We booked a whole row of seats and an aisle seat for me.
Que in the greeks who asked me to move 1 row back and to the opposite side so the wife could sit next to the husband. As they were flying to a foreign country I was nice and gave up my seat and went to the aisle seat where the wife was sitting. After a while the couple said “Oh you have the middle seat”, i was confused because the wife was sitting in the aisle. And I said that was not the agreement and I want my seat back.
The couple said ‘oh well now we have switched nothing you can do’ while they grinned and laughed thinking that they played me. I was pissed because they were aholes but I noticed that the attendants were shutting the plane doors so I just smiled and told my family to calm down and that it all will be alright. So after we took off (it’s a 3-hour flight so it’s not that short) I was still in an empty row. I had all the space to myself and was comfortably lying over 3 seats that I had to myself.
The couple noticed and made a sour face, they asked if i could move to my original seat, that’s when i said ‘oh well now we have switched nothing you can do’. It was amazing to see my whole family and the surrounding seats trying to cover their laughs, even the flight attendants were grinning. Now that’s what I call Instant Karma.
