Aw, me too, I'm glad OP didn't tell the flight attendant.. It would've just pissed him off. All that for nothing. It was great of him to do that. But what's with everyone saying they just leave books? I read a lot of books and even if they suck, I've never done that. Donate it to the library or something. Don't expect other people to deal with your shit for you.
could be like when my Grandmother went to India. My grandmother was reading a book, but bought another version of it to take on her trip. Whilst she was on a bus in India she finished the book but because she already had a version of it at home, she left it on the bus. But the conductor found her and gave it back to her :L. That happened 3 times in total :L.
This only makes sense if the flight had a connecting route and there were still passengers waiting on the plane to go to the next destination and OP left the book for the next passenger who would come. If the plane has reached it's last destination, then the planes would have been cleaned for the next trip of passenger and the book would have been thrown out anyway. It would have been much smarter and sensible for OP to have left it in a coffee shop (which is where the tradition originally started) or even just the airport's coffee shop.
um...who just randomly discards a book when they're done with it?? YDI
There's a difference between discarding it and being a douchebag thinking it's other peoples' jobs to clean up after you. I work at the X-ray security check for hand bags, and people always leave their junk behind on the boxes where you put cellphoneswallets etc in. It's really fucking annoying- I'm a security worker, I'm not here to clean up your junk. OP, you don't want the book, throw the damn thing yourself or donate it. YDI.
It's not their job to clean up after you. You don't want the book? Dispose of it yourself, it's not hard. I feel bad for anyone who has to deal with this kind of attitude..
sharing the book...thats a good idea, next person to take the seat can read it...
Yes they do. I don't want to go to my seat and find someone else's trash there. If the OP would have let the fight attendant know of his intent then he might have added it to the collection of mags that they have on board up front. But most likely anything left behind get tossed in the trash anyway. OP would have been better off giving it away personally to someone.
