  • Buy headphones for movie. Pretend to be watching one but dont have any sound on and then pretend to fall asleep. Wake up, leave headphones on and you have no problems now
  • listen to my iPod,of course!!
  • I just lean back ; tune them OUT, and sleep.
  • Get a headset from the attendant and put my nose in a book. Or, if i want to sleep, jut close my eyes and stop responding. Some people never get the message.
  • Masturbate?
  • watch a film with headphones, or listen to ipod,
  • I go to 1st class and make Robin Williams trade seats with me.............
  • You say "Please don't take this personally but I really don't feel like talking and just want to sit back and read/relax"
  • smile, and make conversation!...Id much rather talk to strangers!
  • headphones or stay in the toilet lol
  • Using all the diplomacy and tastefulness I could muster I would courteously and professionally tell them to shut the fuck up!
  • I would laugh at the situation, and make the best of it.
  • Ask for sleeping pill LOL
  • i would probably talk nonstop for eight hours as well.
  • When they ask you what you do, tell them you sell life insurance. They'll stay away from you after that.
  • Simply and politely tell them that you need to concentrate on work, sleep, your movie, etc. and that you'll be glad to talk with them before landing. :-)
  • Take a sleeping tablet, close my eyes and hope that I could fall asleep. Generally, I have difficulty sleeping on a flight anyway but I would not want to have to listen to non-stop chatter.
  • Talk louder than him, or give him a good book to read so that he keeps quiet for the rest of the entire journey.
  • Talk... I'd mostly likely be the one who won't shut up.
  • when they are done talking about the subject just keep saying i am tired and keep yawning and the just turn you head and go to sleep.!
  • I once got stuck beside a bloke wearing a vynal jacket who had the most unbelievable Body Odour. I knew I wasn't going to be able to cope with it for the whole flight so I called the hostess and asked her to bring me a stack of the wet paper towels they give out to people who get air sick, because I knew they had a nice smell to them. When they arrived I told the guy to remove his jacket then gave him a pad sized stack of the wet towels to place under each of his arms. I know this sounds terrible, but he absolutely stunk, I'd have been ill if I hadn't taken the action I did. I know I was well supported by the number of people who silently mouthed "thank you" to me as I glanced about the cabin. As for the guy, he didn't seem the least bit bothered, I think he was aware, and was glad to find a solution to his problem. So whether it's talking, or whatever, you must act or be prepared to put up with it.
  • I would just be direct and polite at first, unless he continued when asked to stop jabbering.
  • smile and nod while reading a book, they'll catch on eventually, assuming they are a reasonable person? If they aren't, then start bugging them back? Every time they say some thing get real close to their face and make goat noises interrupting them every time they start to say something? make the sound of your voice go up at the end of every sentence when you read aloud from your book?
  • Pretend to fall asleep and snore loudly. Or purchase headphones.
  • Politely ask them to allow you your "space" and then ignore any further attempts by them to converse!
  • Pop in the headphones. :)
  • Purchase headphones and take a sedative. Who cares if it hurts their feelings, they are being selfish by gassing on in your earhole.
  • I always carry ear plugs on every trip. I'd say, "excuse me but I'm going to take a nap now..." put in the ear plugs, and close my eyes.
  • I would tell him to shut the fuck up before I will make him to. I would tell him very straight that I hate him and so I hate sitting next to him but there's no chance to get another seat and that nobody on this entire planet would possibly give a wet bag of shit about his problems or whatever he's talking about.
  • Take along a headset, IPOD, portable DVD player, book. Then put on the headset and tune 'em out. I can't sleep in anything that's moving, so a nap wouldn't work for me.
  • I tend to keep at least one item on me that is likely to make people uncomfortable enough to leave me alone. Options include, bringing an extremely disturbing movie to watch. Reading a book that freaks them out ( You should have seen the reaction the chatty bat next to me had when she saw I was reading a guide on serving human flesh) typically does the trick too. i have a small fetus I keep in my backpack that I can start talking to as well.
  • put the head phones on, turn the music fuill blast and rock out :)
  • Depends. Is he cute? Seriously, though, It depends on whether or not I wanted to sleep. If not, I wouldn't mind.
  • I would proceed to tell him in detail of my experience with anal hematoma, syphilis or some other fascinating story. I'm sure he would be the one wearing the headphones in no time :0)
  • Just talk to the person and be good to him/her. Well,i'd enjoy the trip much better if i had someone to talk to who won't feel bored talking to me.
  • I would not mind it. I will try to listen and hope that I could learn something of value from him or her. However if I am losing attention I would ask to be excused like going to the toilet, getting some reading material from the stewardess or asking for drinks.
  • Turn to them and say, "I've enjoyed talking to you but I need some quiet time now. Perhaps after I do some reading and have a nap we can chat some more. If we don't thanks I enjoyed your company very much" No need for conflict or rudeness. the world is full of lonely people and despite all the ways we have to stay in touch in many ways we are more isolated than ever. Understanding and politeness go a long way in helping folks feel better.
  • Tell them that they are talking too much.
  • Same thing I do on a 5 hour train ride. Chat for a while, but after a polite conversation look down at my book every time theres a slight pause until he or she gets the hint. It works.
  • i close my eyes lean back and go to sleep and let them talk as long as they like
  • Fall asleep.
  • Put in my ear buds, turn on my ipod, lean back and close my eyes as soon as there is any lull in the conversation.
  • Put my ear plugs in very obviously and read or watch a film. If they continue to talk to me I will politely ask them to desist.
  • close eyes and snore loudly.
  • Tell them it's an 8 hour flight, & you would like to be left alone for a while... Then just put your ipod on or anything like that.
  • I'd be slightly annoyed at them, but thankful that I'm not sitting next to someone with a screaming child. I'd put my headphones in and zone.
