I got stuck in front of a seat kicker years ago. Not quite the same reaction from the mother or flight attendant but just as useless. When we landed I went to get my stuff from under the seat and I find a kids shoe there. I stuck it in my bag. As I’m getting off the flight they’re still looking for the kids shoe, which was going to be pretty hard to find since I tossed it in a trash can. I might be going to hell for stealing some kids shoe in a petty fit of revenge but it felt good at the time.
