Unless you are traveling on a private jet there is a good chance you are not the only passenger on the plane. Here are my top three annoying passengers.
- Watch a movie or listen to your music without headphones – Sometimes I just want to take a nap during the flight and I do not want to listen to your bad taste in music or movies. The plane is a shared space and not everyone wants to be included in your entertainment choice.
- Complain the entire flight – There are many aspects of flying that will bother passengers but everyone does not need to hear about it. I’m hoping your mother taught you that if you do not have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. Saying the seats are too small 20 times will not make them any bigger.
- Be a smelly passenger – Whether it is bad hygiene or bringing smelly foods on the plane, the people sitting around you will not be the happiest travelers. The plane is a confined space with recirculated air and sitting near someone with body odor or a tuna fish sandwich can make some people nauseous.
There are many other things that will annoy those around you but these 3 are at the top of the list for me. Please don’t be “that person” when you travel.
