Airplane Rules

Since I have been doing all of this traveling, I have decided to come up with some rules for flight.  I will call them "Abby's Airplane Rules."

  1. You are not allowed to bring any sort of ethnic food onto an airplane. 
  2. You are not allowed to take your stinky shoes off during flight. 
  3. You are not allowed to sing out loud to a song on your ipod.
  4. You are not allowed to undo your belt or the button on your pants if you are sitting next to me...that is just weird.
  5. You are not allowed to lean your body over mine just so you can look out of the window...if you want a window seat, you should ask for one. 
  6. You are not allowed to adjust my air conditioning vent.
  7. You are not allowed to pass any sort of stinky gas out of any orafice of your body...it is recycled air for goodness sake, we all have to breathe it!!!
  8. You are not allowed to sit by me and not chew on a piece of gum or have a mint in your mouth during the entire flight. 
  9. You are not allowed to tell me about your very most intimate and personal problems just because we are strangers on a plane. 
  10. You are not allowed to spray perfume or body spray...see #7. 
  11. When you are falling asleep, you are not allowed to start falling over on me or in my space. Gross. 
  12. You are not allowed to talk to me when my headphones are in...they are in for a reason...probably because you should pop in a mint. 

I think I will start giving a copy of these to the people sitting next to me on the plane.  I encourage you to do the same.  It should make your flights much more enjoyable. :)
