Man divides opinion after refusing to move from window seat – despite other passenger paying for it | The Sun

A MAN has divided opinion after he refused to move from the window seat – despite another passenger paying for it.

He explained his predicament on Reddit, and asked if he was on the wrong.

He wrote: "I was flying alone and had the middle seat (I love windows).

"A guy and his girl come and the guy says can my wife and I sit together? I was like sure but I get the window."

He then said that the man had paid for the window seat, so wanted to sit there.

The man continued: " I was like what do you want more? The window or to sit together. I got the window and the guy was visibly p*****."
