No, you're not imagining it: there's a higher concentration of annoying people on planes than in many other places. And no matter where you go or what airline you take, you'll always run into these kinds of people:

1. The person who pushes his seat back so far he's basically laying in your lap.

You are literally looking up into my eyes. How is that not awkward for you?

2. The person who won't stop arguing with the flight attendant.

3. The person who's deathly afraid of flying and starts loudly praying and/or having a panic attack.

Alright, I wasn't scared before, but now I am!

4. The kid who kicks the seat.

5. The parent who doesn't tell the kid to stop kicking the seat.

6. The overly friendly elderly person who keeps trying to talk to you when all you want to do is sleep or listen to music in peace.

But you don't know how to politely tell her to stop talking, so you're stuck listening to her the entire nine-hour flight.

7. The crying baby that you really, really wish you didn't hate.

The plane takes off. The screaming starts. It continues for hours and hours with no sign of letting up. And that's when you realize that loudness can completely cancel out cuteness.

8. The person taking the typical plane wing Instagram picture.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
