Annoying people...

I saw this years ago, and I saved If you are sitting next to someone who irritates you on a plane, train or some other close quarters... follow these instructions:

1. Quietly and calmly open up your laptop case.

2. Remove your laptop.

3. Start up

4. Make sure the guy who is annoying you, can see the screen.

5. Close your eyes, let out a big sigh/breath and tilt your head up to the sky.

6. Then HIT THIS: http://boortz.com/mp3/archive/countdown.swf

What I usually do when someone decides that I wanted to spend the next 6 hours hearing about their life is just say, "uh oh." and remove the airsick bag from the seat pocket, open it up and hold it in my lap, tilt my head back, close my eyes and start breathing through my mouth. You'd be suprised how many people do not want to disturb you when you are in this position.

HAHAHAHAHAHA That is awesome! That also eliminates getting arrested as a terrorist.

Pick your nose and eat the boogers. No one wants to talk to that guy. Worked wonders for me on the flight to Barcelona a few years ago. It's a bit gross but hey... at least I got privacy. Also... if you then touch the armrest (always a battle on a plane), guaranteed that you get to use it the ENTIRE flight

Good one Bas, I'll have to try that.

I had a good one last month on my flight from Tokyo to Chicago. It's a 12 hour flight, I had the aisle, some guy wearing a suit had the window. The stewardess was bringing the meal and somehow my beer got tipped over into the lap of this guy sitting next to me. Don't know how it happened, wasn't my fault. I apologized anyway and gave him my napkin and my blanket and whatever else I could do. He wasn't pleased. He went and got his carry-on and changed his pants in the bathroom. Funny thing though, 2 hours later he gets up to go to the bathroom. Well I figure this is probably a good time for me to go also. I get back and there he is with a blanket trying to mop up his seat. I had a glass of water on the armrest and he dumped it into his seat while he was trying to get back in. I was like, "Man, this just ain't your day." I don't think there is anyone in the world that hated me more than that guy did that day. I was clean and dry at the end of the flight. He was wet and he'd already changed once.

Needless to say, we didn't "talk".

Haha, that is hilarious. Unfortunate for him though. As Roberto said, bad luck comes in three...I wonder what else happened to him...
