Airplane Etiquette for the Awk Situations

I have found myself in both the kicking kid and Chatty Cathy situations several times.

With the kicking kid, I just don’t say anything because I already feel bad for the overly exhausted parent hauling their kids and loads of luggage cross country (and I definitely don’t do that rude glare some people do–I’m like seriously?! Be a human being).

With the gabber, I say I’m going to take a nap and then close my eyes and silently bemoan why I wasn’t just honest that I wanted to do my Sudoku…

So basically neither of those are very good solutions!

However, this Refinery29 piece gives us actual non-passive aggressive etiquette rules for dealing with 5 of airplane’s biggest offenders.

Happy travelling!
