2.) When passengers turn their reading lights on during the overnight portion of the flight. Some of us want to sleep. My sleep mask can only block out so much of the beaming light shining two inches away from my face.
3.) When the in-flight movie isn't in English. Those tiny weeny subtitles on the 1 foot by 1 foot screen five seats in front of me are not a legible rendition of "The Motorcycle Diaries".
4.) When the Sudoku puzzle has already been completed in the In-Flight Magazine. The right to a fresh In-flight Magazine is in fact included in the airline ticket I purchased.
5.) People that want to talk during the flight. My iPod headphones are on and my Hunger Games book is open. All signs lead to I don't want to chit-chat.
6.) The Captain announcing the local temperature in Celsius. So in Fahrenheit that's Celsius times two add 12 to the 9th power square root of 8 throw it all in the quadratic equation and I get... 300 degrees Fahrenheit? In Scotland? This can't be right.
9.) People that leave their cellphones on. The true gamblers of fate. If we plummet to a terrifying death because your cellphone interfered with the planes radio, I will push you out of the plane first.
I suppose it's always worth the suffering to travel internationally. I personally can't wait for the year 2040 when we all have individual jet-packs. Get on that NASA.
