I got yelled at by someone who said I was bothering people and taking up their space in the aisle. I think their idea was that I should have waited for the whole plane to empty, and then go get it. I admired their self-righteousness and wondered what else I could or should have done.
Either what you did, or asking people to pass your bag up to you. I've never seen a problem with the latter.
