Let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel.

It’s Monday, the bank holiday is wrapping up and, for some, it never happened.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Recently, a man was fined €6,500 after reacting angrily to a seat being reclined in front of him while flying. Is there ever a justification for getting annoyed about passengers reclining a seat, as nature (the engineer) intended? It caused quite a stir in the comment section. So tell us: Is it OK to recline your airplane seat?

Poll Results:

It's OK on a long-haul when the lights are off (7613)
It's never OK (3928)
It's always OK (3321)
Can't we all just get along? (1043)

Got a burning question that has divided your household/work colleagues/friends? Let us know in the comments section or email us at tips@thejournal.ie or sinead@thejournal.ie.
