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.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)
