On most commercial airplanes, there’s usually one armrest nestled between each pair of seats. One armrest. Two seats.

This can obviously lead to some confusion. Who gets to use the armrest? Who decides? Is there a vote?

Most of the time someone’s dad just claims it without asking.

Well, one brave soul documented his heroic effort to challenge the patriarchy and take back the armrest!

Someone uploaded a GIF of the armrest action to the website Gfycat along with the caption, “Time to boot the armrest hog!”

The GIF was then shared on Reddit where users quickly upvoted it to the front page.

Watch below and enjoy.
