The airport is a place that brings out the worst in many people. There are lines, all of the other humans, lots of waiting, rules that make everything take twice as long, and cramped spaces you’re expected to try to enjoy for the sake of a “nice flight.”
These 14 people, though, they’ve had enough, and all ideas of politeness and grinning and bearing it have flown right out the window.
14. That’s DEFCON 3, my friends.
a grown man on my flight is wearing salmon colored pants and also he’s fully barefoot and everybody is acting like we’re not in extreme danger

13. What’s wrong with the world, in micro.
went to board my flight and there was a guy sitting in my window seat and when i told him it was mine he said “but i want it” and if that’s not this whole f*ckin country i don’t know what is

12. I would have stabbed him, so the video is pretty low key.
No, this is not my boyfriend, relative or anyone close to me. This is the passenger sitting in front of me on my flight to Rome. This sicko had the COJONES to do this 5 TIMES!! I had to sit sideways and the guy went as far as reclining his seat to try to reach me better. pic.twitter.com/0s53h0jxpH

11. I mean it’s a long flight what else are you gonna do?
i think my soulmate is the lady on my flight who just groaned thru the end of Grown Ups, rubbed her eyes in defeat, then started Grown Ups 2

10. My brain doesn’t even know how to compute this unprecedented turn of events.
Someone on my plane just asked for Diet Pepsi and was crestfallen when they only had Diet Coke, so if I am serial killed tonight you all know who did it.

9. Some people have no shame.
So this random old lady i was sitting next to on my flight was staring at my phone the whole time so i had to catch her in the act pic.twitter.com/wf3fYzoUxO

8. Hey, you’ve got 3 hours to kill, you’re watching that non-animated movie you’ve been dying to see, no matter the screen.
To the man on my flight yesterday, who watched what appeared to be an entire movie on a 7th generation iPod Nano, you are a national hero. pic.twitter.com/xWyjH9wEvW

7. This is the beginning of a romantic comedy for sure.
My flight was delayed 3 hours so I was doing what any human does when they’re bored. Minding my own business swiping through tinder & the guy behind me goes “ouch hard no for that one?” And I turn around ONLY TO SEE THE MAN I JUST SWIPED NO ON BEHIND ME HAHAHA

6. If it does I’m sure it’s a registered service animal.
The lady that brings snakes to school to show them just got on my plane. If a snake crawls out of her pocket I’m gonna go ape cr*p all over this flight.

5. Hands down the best thing I’ve seen on the internet in weeks.
why is a dog on my flight trying to airdrop me a photo of him? pic.twitter.com/SKCsZvzg13

4. Shock and awe is the only response, at that point.
The lady that sat beside me on this flight ate my lunch. Her reason “you were asleep and I didn’t want the food to get cold and go bad.” Her courage is amazing. I’m still in awe.

3. You might be misinterpreting their looks, just sayin.
Bringing a tuna fish sub on this flight was a good idea. Everyone is looking at me like they should have thought of that.

2. Aw, bless his heart.
I saw a man on my flight pull his phone out seemingly apropos of nothing add 200+300 (it was 500) then just put his phone away

1. Friend goals.
There is a group of women getting on my flight and one has a shirt that says “just divorced” and the others have shirts that say “divorce support group” and they are all plastered. Those are the type of friends everyone needs in their life lm*o

Don’t judge them too hard – it could happen to anyone, even you!
