Get me out of here

Today, I'm on a 14-hour flight, stuck next to a large man whose rancid body odor is eclipsed only by his constant flatulence, which he loudly blames on me every time. On my other side is his friend who laughs like a moose at everything. There are no empty seats and no-one will trade with me. FML

Why would anyone trade with you, really? I sympathize with you, having to sit there for so long. However, no one in their right mind would willing sacrifice themselves to it either.

Can't the two friends at least sit together, without having you in between them? That's just rude, forcing a stranger to be in the middle of their jokes and conversations.

I mean you can try and get in a good mood and just laugh with your friend(:

Well it's his friend, not OP's.

I mean you can always make new friends, laughing with anybody is always fun(:

Try that with Hitler.

I wouldn't blame anyone else for not wanting to trade seats with you. FYL, OP.

it even seems that his own friend wouldn't sit next to him.

Can you blame them ? Sorry for your misfortune, but who would willingly switch seats next to a large man with a rancid odor.

Put your head down. And ignore them. Just get on with it.

By tomorrow it will be over, in ten years you won't even remember what happened.

You should have complained to the crew before the flight left. A man on a Jazz Air flight in 2010 was removed from the plane because of passengers complaining about his offensive body odor ...

I think you mean annoying or disgusting. I can't think of how an odor would offend someone lol

By smelling bad- that's how an 'odor' would offend someone. Offensive means "unpleasant." Rancid is used to describe things that smell unpleasant. Ergo, "rancid" body odor is offensive. This is basic English. Maybe the next time you don't understand a word you should look it up BEFORE you make an ass out of yourself trying to 'correct' someone who used a word correctly. That said, I hope you aren't truly a heart surgeon, because I have the feeling that you trying to explain a procedure would be unintelligible.

Dude it's a 15 year old. This is the Internet, and grammar and vocabulary really aren't that serious.

I would argue it's more serious on the Internet because you're forced to use only words to convey a point, full of your personality, tone, and expression. And considering the person in question is 15, he most likely is the person who has most recently learnt about all such things, so he should arguably be best at it.

Yeah, I once traded so a daughter can sit with her parents, I still regret it to today when I sat next to a body builder and a fat woman

Maybe the flight attendant will sympathize and find an empty seat in business or first class. Sometimes they will do that. Idk if it is financially possible for you but booking in first class alleviates headaches like long lines and slobby passengers

unfortunately not everyone is a heart surgeon
