Having just taken a trip I was painfully reminded of a few reasons I don’t like traveling by plane. Granted flying has way more advantages than disadvantages and I’m definitely in support of flying as a means of travel, it’s just that there can be many aggravations as well.
And considering that I’m a person that generally doesn’t like other people, combine that with a plane ride and you have yourself something to complain about
Here are my five worst kinds of plane passengers…..
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind having polite conversation with my neighbor on a plane. Hell I welcome it especially if it’s a hot chick. But there are times and places for talking. You need a person who understands when you are doing your plane rituals or anything that sort of means “OK we’re done for now.” Sometimes you get people who completely ignore that and want to talk for hours. That’s not cool.
These are the people who are way too stuck up and feel way too entitled to be on a plane. They bitch about every little thing from the food and drink to the earphones they are wearing. Not to mention it’s kind of embarrassing. Let’s face it people. We’re on planes and can get to any place in the U.S. within 6 hrs. There isn’t much to complain about.
The Fidgety One
I want to be clear here. These aren’t even people that bump into your seat. These are people that just can’t sit still and you can see them out of the corner of your eye. It’s irritating as hell. And then of course you get the ones that actually do bump into you and it makes it 100 times worse.
The Overweight One
I’m not trying to be incredibly rude here or anything like that but I know you guys were thinking the same thing. Whether it’s mean or not it’s still true. It isn’t the most ideal situation to be sitting next to a person who realistically requires two seats.
The Smelly One
Yup, it happens. There are people whose deodorants simply don’t cut their weight. It’s gross. I hate it and it’s even worse when their smell rubs off on you.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
