5 Ways To Piss Me Off On An Airplane

I'm not a fan of flying because I've watched too many episodes of Lost. But sometimes I have to do it.

There are other reasons why flying can be irritating though. Here are ways to piss me (and others, I imagine) while on an airplane.




1. Lean your seat all the way back.




At least PAY ME before you rest your head in my lap.



2. Talk to me when I'm trying to read.



If I have my book open, I'm done conversing.


3. Say, "Sorry, we're out of Diet Coke. Can I get you a real Coke?" 





No. No you cannot.


4. Allow your kid to continuously kick the back of my seat. I get if it happens occasionally--I have kids too. But I once had a boy kick my seat every couple of minutes.


I had to turn around and ask him to stop. I have my limits. I'm surprised the mother didn't write a blog post entitled To The Woman Who Told My Son To Stop Kicking Her Seat.



6. Say casually, "Oh, we're all going to die," when there is turbulence. You have people who don't like to fly (ME!) on the flight who will panic and take you seriously.




What are your flying pet peeves?

  2. Getting out a book is normally a good way to take a break from conversations though not everyone gets the hint!

  3. Hahaha I have a draft coming on my worst flight ever.
    It was all this and so so much more.
    Death would have been preferable!
    Airplanes blowwwww. They are liking flying bus rides. And by bus I mean the city ghetto kind.

  4. You know what grinds my gears? People who REFUSE to gate check their oversized carry-on and then proceed to spend 5 minutes punching it into the overhead bin. These people are why I check all of my bags - I have no desire to be THAT person! :)

  5. On our last flight a couple weeks ago, a kid was kicking my seat... I was finally so fed up and irritated that when I came back from the restroom, my husband had traded seats with me... all was good for a few minutes... until the mom traded seats with her kid and he started kicking me again! I don't think I have ever glared so hard.

  6. LOST ruined flying for me because now, whenever there's turbulence, I imagine landing on some island with black smoke and wild hogs and all that and worry how I would survive.

    The seat kickers are the worst. I'm okay with a leaner because if it's too far back, I shove my knees into the back of the seat until they're so uncomfortable they move up a bit. I'm short so I don't need much in the way of leg room but still. Have some courtesy.

  8. The seat leaning back annoys me! So do people who talk to me while I read- though that's not just on planes.

  12. Good luck! Although the idea of flying alone seems like a dream to me. I used to do it often and now it's all about if Des will or will not screech.

  13. :) Best of luck! I'm not big on the whole flying on a plane thing. It's been a few years...

  14. Oh my goodness, I've had every one of these things happen to me. I had the kid kicking the back of my seat every few minutes thing happen on a 13 hour flight. And I was a teenager. And super non confrontational. So I just let it happen. Ugh. Oh, and the book thing... YES! Couldn't agree more.

  15. It has been 10 years since I have flown anywhere. I fear my kids would make less than satisfactory flying companions for many of the reasons you have here.

  16. LMAO Agreed on all points!! I have a 24 hour flight to look forward to in a couple months time, if there is a kid kicking my seat the whole way, I may or may not commit murder!!

  17. Dude I once took a standby military flight home from Germany while the husband was downrange in the middle of a 15 month deployment. Can I please tell you, as I'm sure you know, the military is the most unorganized group of people in the entire world. I had no idea when we'd be leaving, whether or not my kid would need to be strapped into a jump seat or a regular airplane seat, and which town we'd land in. Did I mention I had to organize some sort of connection to get me from the east coast to Chicago? That, my friend, was one experience I will never do again. Flight annoyance maxed out.

  18. The seat reclined all the way are just rude, same with kicking the back of the chair. Hope your flight was good.

  19. Never been on a plane but have been on a bus and when I put my seat back I felt knees in the back. Mind you, he had both seats to himself so I have no idea what his problem was.

  20. When I flew one time with my baby in a carseat, the guy in front of him leaned his seat all the way back and my baby had NO room. It made me so angry, I honestly wanted to punch him in his face. The stewardess and the lady sitting next to me asked him to sit up and he still wouldn't. So frustrating!

  22. Lol! "Are we going to die?" I find that hilarious. What I hate and experienced out of all you listed is someone leaning their seat way back.
