Because of their size, many overweight people are disadvantaged by the design of seating in public places. Unable to fit comfortably in theaters, buses, or airplanes, everyday occurrences can become problematic. The situation not only affects them, but also those around them. Sitting outside of the seat can create contact and discomfort between passengers, as well as block emergency egress lanes. The solution to this problem is a sensitive one, as weight is a problem that is difficult to address. However, many people suggest that organizations should either accommodate the obese or require them to purchase two seats.
