Tip of the Day #637

by Lincoln Sedlacek

If you don’t want to talk to the people next to you on an airplane, put in earbuds and whenever someone tries to start a conversation say, “I’m sorry – these earbuds aren’t actually attached to anything, but I put them in so that I wouldn’t have to talk to you. Let’s just pretend this never happened, okay?” If they protest, just point at both earbuds and shake your head, mouthing, “Sorry, I can’t hear you.”
