Actually just take out the other clauses. Basically you would be annoyed if there was no overhead bin space.
The difference between other passengers (in E- as you say) is that they don't have that sense of entitled that they deserve the overhead bin space.

It's safer to board back to front. I was seated in F last time I flew AS, with 5 passengers on the plane, boarded last, and also didn't sit up front (other people up there), because it just is safer that way.
