While not obese, I could certainly lose a few pounds. But, the shoulders with which I have been blessed (or cursed) cause me some of the same issues with which people of size deal when facing a flight on today's commercial airlines.
My shoulders and spinal column form a perfect T. Most people have varying degrees of a sloping V. Suffice to say that my shoulders are assured to touch my seat mate whenever I'm in steerage. My seatmates don't like it. I don't like it. But, there's nothing I can do about it.
Just like fat people.
Curious to know how they feel? Read this heartbreaking missive.
Yeah...it sucks for all of us. But, more for them...
