My thoughts on this thread are complicated. I see that many have ridiculed the OP. And I get that - it is hardly a difficult thing to jump seats for a few minutes. But when i think about it, it is a really rare concept. I am way too tall, so have sought exit row seats since day one. But despite having flown almost all my Y experiences in an exit row, I have never ever come across a situation as per the OP's. I would guestimate that I have done about 500 flights in Y exit rows. I have seen everything from complete lack of safety blurb to fantastic crew who made the whole thing fun. But getting you to move for the "talk"? Never have I seen that.
On a recent flight in the exit row the lazy flight attendant made my wife and me move to the other side while she read the exit row instructions so she didn't have to repeat it twice. Then we moved back to our original seats. I was flabbergasted.
