In my opinion, the airplane is man’s best invention… like ever. Well… minus electricity, but that’s beside the point.
The fact that we, as humans, can travel across the globes in a matter of hours is actually insane and amazing. But, people take weird forms in the air. Somehow most of the laws of humanity and what’s normal and polite going out the window at 30,000 feet.
It’s cool though. I’ll put up with everyone’s antics if it means exploring a new destination.
The 7 Types of People You Meet at 30,000 Feet:
1. THE SNOOZER
You know the type — mouth wide open, head on the shoulder of their seatmate, snores are followed by a sudden jerk. It’s good to be well rested before a trip, but please try not to drool on my shoulder.
2. THE CONVERSATIONALIST
This person has never met a stranger. After a while, who knows if their seatmate is really sleeping or just dodging a conversation.
3. THE ENTERTAINER
This is the person that isn’t afraid to sing with their headphones on. Yikes.
4. THE CANOODLERS
Honeymooners, young lovers, couples on an anniversary trip — who says a plane is no place for flirtation and smooching?
5. THE JUGGLER
Bags — CHECK! Passports — CHECK! Kids — CHECK! The plane door closes and prayers are said that juice isn’t spilled, kids stay entertained, and no one gets hurt. Kudos to moms and dads who are The Jugglers.
6. THE TALL ONE
As a person who is 5’4′, I alwasy feel bad for the Tall One. Their knees are always smashed into the seat in front of them and their head always taps the ceiling. So sad.
7. THE BUSY BEAVER
For some, 30,000 feet makes for a great office.
