A hint, airplane etiquette

« previous entry | next entry »

If you get on an airplane and the guy next to you is wearing
headphones and typing on a laptop...

Don't pull his arm every 10 minutes to get his attention so you can
tell him about your life.

He might just blog about you.

Another thought about Chatty Cathy...

I live in fear of cell phone access on airplanes... I can't imagine
sitting next to someone who for hours will use their phone. I am
beginning to think that sound canceling headphones aren't a luxury,
but a necessity.

totally.... i won't leave home without my Etymotic ER-6's these days... well... at least to get on a plane. Crossing the street with them in can be hazardous.

I have to be poked in the arm to be given food though... can't hear anybody talking at all.

(oh, and it's also not immoral to wish horrible things upon these really annoying people)

Do tell Cathy that when she gets drunk while telling you her problems, it's also not good to fall asleep with her head on your shoulder. Free drinks in business class can have their drawbacks.

I am always just astounded at the things people will say in public on their cells. It's like they think that when they open the phone, a little cone of silence descends.

News flash: It doesn't.

You should have been on my flight. My isle-mates were the man in the middle sleeping and the young girl on the end (whose mom was on the other side of the center isle with 2 other kids) who sat quietly the WHOLE time. It was the most peaceful flight EVER!

Of course, if you had been on my flight, this annoying woman would probably have talked your ear off, instead :D
