... I was stuck sitting next to a witness on the plane. I knew it was only a matter of time before it happens as I am on a flight every week for work.
Well, where do I start. First of all, he was very concerned about anyone seeing his laptop while he pecked away at the keyboard with some message to an instant messenger friend. He had all the magazines out and was talking on the phone about bible readings and public talk. I had so many thoughts on how to handle this but decided not to have any fun.
It was interesting to see him exert his 'police' tactics to remind passengers not to use the first class cabin to store their luggage if they were not sitting in first class. I know this may be a stickler for some, but the way he went about it with such audacity in his demeanor in thinking he had some sort of authority over people was sad? funny? distressing? (insert adjective here)?
One gentleman he said rather loudly, "Are you sitting in First Class?" The gentleman pretended not to hear him, the elder spoke up again and with a louder voice. The other passenger said, "Yes!, this is my seat right here!" Then the elder said, "Sorry, there has been a run on the luggage compartment in first class."
I guess the authority complex extends beyond the kingdom hall.
