International misadventure with a DM from YVR to MSP...

This past June, I was on a flight from YVR to MSP. I am a Silver Medallion member, and I was sitting in seat "1A". I was storing my backpack in the overhead compartment when a DM walks behind me. He notices the Silver Medallion tag on my backpack and walks back to his seat in Economy Comfort. He then presses the call button above his seat to summon the flight attendant.

The flight attendant walks over to his seat and asks if she can help him. He points to me and asks her why, as a Silver Medallion member, I was sitting in First Class, when he, as a DM, should have been given higher priority for the First Class seating.

The flight attendant came over to me and asked if she could see my boarding pass. I showed her the pass. She glanced at it and said "Thank you, sir." She then walked back to the DM and said, "He paid cash for that seat, sir!"
