Today, while at the airport waiting for my flight, I sat down next to a mother and her son. As I pulled out a water bottle, she leaned over to her son and said, "Promise me you will never do what the man next to you just did." I have no idea what the hell I did wrong. FML
Bajar tells us more :
Hey all, OP here. To clarify a few things: it was at the airport lounge, the mother and son had a double couch together and I had a single chair next to the son. The water bottle was disposable and on a clearly visible pocket in my backpack. I still have no idea what I did wrong.

If she doesn't have a reason to be overprotective because of OP then he should give her one. Scream loudly in their faces and then roll across the terminal floor like a sasauge until you're on the plane.

At least then her concern will be justified.

45- I thought you were supposed to get on a plane like that. Am I also not supposed to put on the airmask and pretend to be a fighter pilot?

Actually, she said that because water bottles are not allowed on air planes.

He cannot be sitting next to her. The woman clearly said "Promise me........the man next to u just did" . If he is next to the kid, he cant be sitting next to the woman, unless of course in a circular table !

Op: *Gets up to walk away*
Mom: "Son, don't follow such bad example"
Op: *turns head back wondering what he did*
Mom: "Look at that, that's what I want you to never do"
Op: *leaves in a fit of rage*
Mom: "See son, the moral of this story is that the act of trolling is a great power. With great power, comes great responsibility. Use it well"

Because unless the chairs are lined up three-dimensionally, everyone is only entitled to two people next to them. The kid's mom and OP are next to the kid, and I doubt the mom was talking about herself. Or at least, that's how I pictured it.

As it says 'waiting for my flight', that means they are waiting in the holding area (lobby). So it is possible to have more than three seats align. Or at least that's how my airport is.

It doesn't say the kid & his mom were sitting. OP could have sat down next to where they were standing. Thus, several other people could have been "next to" the kid. Also, if they were all sitting, it doesn't say that the mother was next to the son, she could have been across from or behind him...js

Colourless would suggest it's devoid of colour. Therefore, it is inaccurate to refer to something colourless as having a "colour".

No. "A lot of people"is a plural subject. He was right to correct it. However, on his profile picture he doesn't need parenthesis because the order of operations.

No, you're incorrect. The comment this person meant to reply to was "Mothers are very over protective you don't know what there thinking."

If it was correct, it would have said "Mothers are very over protective you don't know what they're thinking." They're meaning "they are". So if we put "they are" into the sentence it should say "Mothers are very over protective you don't know what they are thinking."

There represents a location.
They're means "They are"
Their takes possession of something.'s theirs.
