I've flown a few times since May. I go in, I check my bag, I go through TSA, and I board with my group.

I don't chat up folks. I keep my mask up, I bring my own snacks and water. I read during the flight. I strive to be invisible and unobtrusive to the flight crew. And to my fellow passengers. I just want to be left alone.

I have never understood folks who like to travel and need attention. It's just not how I travel.

In the same way Trump has made it ok for racists to come out of the closet, so, too, has he inspired an entire swath of the population to embrace their inner asshole.

Wait - there's a word for this: deplorable.

It must be disconcerting to now have mace issued as a part of the standard uniform.

When passive aggressive people get more excuses to be passively aggressive, people are going to aggress but not passively.

This is how I've always traveled. Nothing wrong with chatting up another passenger or two, but it's never been my way. I just want to get where I'm going as quickly as possible with no fuss.

And getting so agitated that you punch a flight attendant is beyond insane. That asshat deserves all the shiat that hopefully rained down on them.

Noise cancelling headphones are a wonderful way to make it obvious that you don't want to chat. Plus, you don't have to listen to that guy in the row ahead of you who never stops talking about himself for the entire flight.

I think a lot of the ones that chat incessantly are dealing with anxiety and can't really help it.
