Window shades are a big deal in the flights. A lot of times one passenger wants the shade to be shut but the other might want the shade to be open so that they can look outside.
But this new videohas taken the window shade wars to a whole new level. The 2-minute clip shows two grown men continuously closing and opening a window shade without taking a break.
In the video, the man who is filming the whole incident is seen repeatedly trying to close the window shade of the row in front of him. "I want this down," he is heard saying again and again as the man sitting next to the window opens the shade again and again.
Not being able to come to a common conclusion, the two grown men even called the flight attendant at one point to end their fight. According to the video, the flight was in descent and all the passengers had been asked to keep the window shades open. But still one of the passengers wanted it down.
In the video, one of the two men in question can be heard saying, "Are you serious? Leave me alone." If you look carefully, you will see that the man who is asking to shut down the window shade because 'it is too bright' has his own window shade up.

As per the basic airplane etiquette, the window that is in your row is the only window that you can open or shut. You cannot ask other passenger to close or open their window shade. But looks like, these people were not aware of it.
