Sometimes just by caring the most you don't get to decide. But there might be a happy ending anyways.

Musical airplane chairs.

I came to my seat at 30C, where a fellow passenger got the row and aisle mixed up. I point out the swap,  am fine either way, and end up with the aisle.

The nice dude in 31B swaps with 30B (now filling our aisle) to let a mom sit with her kid behind us.

But then flight attendant offers exit row and 30 is back to 2. Nice dude gets leg room, mommy and kid sit next to each other, and fellow passenger and I marvel at the small triple win from being nice all around.
