For those not scared of flying it can be a really exciting experience hopping on a plane and jetting away. Personally, I love flying no matter the distance or destination, but the experience isn’t always great for a few reasons…..
You had your entire flight planned with watching movies and taking a tactical snooze to be fresh on arrival, you walk on to the plane all guns blazing and your neck pillow already on you. You walk down the aisle counting down the numbers to your seat and your smile slowly fades as you discover you’re sitting in front of, or worse beside one of gods most evil creations.. a child. Now I know that it wouldn’t be feasible to ban children from aeroplane’s but god, wouldn’t that be the dream?! These little devils will kick, scream, throw food.. pretty much cause every disturbance known to man that is possible while 30,000 feet in the air. On the upside, everything that can happen on your trip away from here onward will be brilliant in comparison to the nightmare that you have sat through, but they have a unique and brilliant ability to dim the light of all departing excitement making your first day a tired, ear ringing blur.
Admittedly I think we have all been a part of this obnoxious and loud party. But the last thing you want, and especially not on the flight home is to be joined by the most enthusiastic, drunken bunch of people to ever grace your presence. Oh, another round of drinks you are having? Great! I can’t wait for you to get even louder! Call me the Grinch of fun but once I get on a plane the last thing I want is to listen to a large group of people hollering about this and that.. All I want is to sleep!
This can be both funny and annoying.. depending where you are sitting and how it plays out. Getting stuck beside a couple on the verge of breaking up, tears streaming and screaming loving plees while taking intervals to passionately kiss is a N I G H T M A R E. I hate public displays of affection, but public displays of depressed, crying affection is so, so much worse. How are you meant to concentrate on your next episode of House of Cards if you can’t here over their cheating accusations?!
It is really nice to get some friendly conversation going on a flight, especially when you are on your own or if the person is elderly (because elderly people just melt my heart regardless of their attitude haha!) but it can be a pain to get seated beside Mr.Chatterbox and fail to get any time to relax on the flight as it is all spent talking. Some people may love this as it would make the journey go faster, you can learn some really interesting things about that person and so on but when you are tired and sick of travelling its hard to keep conversation up with the best of friends, let alone strangers! Exchanging niceties and then leaving each other to their own business every once in awhile is the way forward in my opinion!
Let me know in the comments the type of airplane strangers that grinds your gears! (maybe there is none, maybe I’m just an angry little woman haha!) 🙂
