A crew member was very rude and forced us to check in our carry on although we were sitting on row 7 we explained that we didn't have any checked in bags and did this so we could speed up our exit. He was very rude and grabbed our luggage's and tagged them to be checked in and said everyone has to check them in there is not space on the plane. As soon as we got on the plane we could see all the available overhead space and multiple people behind us with luggage's that were bigger than ours brought them on the plane. The fact that he was so rude really made the flight experience horrible. His attitude felt like he singled us out and just wanted to ruin our day which he did.
