The Joy of Flying

Airplanes and I are best friends. We were introduced to each other when I was a little tyke and our relationship has grown stronger over the years. I have flown 6+ times over this past year and every time I step onto that plane I can't help but notice the 6 distinct people that are always traveling with me. 

1) The snorer. Even before the plane takes off this person is zonked out and snoring. Man, I can't help but savor that precious time where my iPod isn't allowed to be on!

2) The let-me-tell-you-my-entire-life-story person. Thankfully I've only had to sit next to this person a couple times, but I've heard them chatter in the seat across from me many times. Don't get me wrong, I love talking! But, I like my sleep just a bit more.

3) The I-want-to-lay-in-your-lap person. I mean, airplanes are super spacious. Don't you agree? I don't mind at all when the person in front of me reclines their seat onto my lap. Less room? I'm in!

4) The workers. I don't know how people accomplish things on an airplane. There are always people studying and working on all different things for their job. I have tried multiple times to be productive on an airplane, but I just can't do it. 

5) The I-need-20-carry-ons person. You're guaranteed to see a person that is carrying all their belongings onto an airplane in approximately 20 separate bags. I don't know how they sneak by the airline workers, but they do. And they don't have any problem storing their bags in your overhead space and underneath the seat in front of you.

6) The I-go-to-the-bathroom-every-5-minutes person. As soon as the seatbelt light switches off this person is up and out of their seat. And then again 5 minutes later. And again. And again. And again.

Am I the only one that notices these people on every single flight? What other type of people do you always tend to notice?


  1. hahahahaha i am #6 without a doubt... and i love sitting by the window so whoever is sitting next to me... SORRY!

  2. eek i'm #1 but only for a while. I don't know what it is about planes but when the plane starts up and is going down the tarmac, i'll go from wide awake to tired as hell and i'll fall asleep, mouth open and everything. it's not pretty.

  3. LOL yes, all of these! And the 20 carry-ons guy is always the last one in and is trying to re-arrange everything in the overhead space. so annoying!

  4. I am totally #5. On my recent trip in South East Asia, I was carrying my backpack and an extra bag on. I was way to cheap to pay $30 per flight just to check my bag. And it is a backpack, so I can carry it on. But I always feel bad when I am walking in and bump people with my bag. lol
