QotD: Up in the Air

Do you ever call friends or use the Internet when flying or do you use airplane time as an opportunity to unwind, read, or talk to strangers? How do you usually pass the time when you’re in the air?

Do I seem like I’m made of money? If I’m flying, I’m crammed in like a sardine in a little tiny seat, desperately grasping my iPod for music to distract me from my gradual feeling of claustrophobia.

(Did I put enough description in a single sentence?)

I don’t really talk to strangers, mostly because I work in law enforcement (not actively, I’m not a cop) and I know what can happen if someone is a little too matey with a seatmate. Plus if the person is annoying, I’d be stuck sitting with them, pretending to find their conversation fascinating OR I’d have to be rude and just start ignoring them. I know it’s an odd choice since not speaking is also slightly rude but I’d rather be kind of rude than outright rude. (That makes sense, right?)

    You can smile and not say anything and then look like you're concentrating on something else. I haven't flown since 1994, didn't like it back then, would like it less now. But the same thing applies in general.

    Stop touching me! LOL. Yeah, I can picture that…
    I usually go for the boring job thing. Tell them you do the most boring job in the world, then detail endlessly about how boring your job is. Watch them run for the Emergency Exit and laugh as they get tackled while trying to open and jump out the hatch…
