Posted on

1. When you purposefully only pack a carry-on bag (because you don't want to deal with baggage claim), but are forced to check it at the gate because there is no overhead bin space left.

2. When you're just trying to get to your seat, but can't because the line is being held up by someone trying to squeeze their huge-ass bag into the overhead bin.


3. When you finally make it to your seat and see that someone is accidentally sitting in it (and it low-key makes you irrationally mad).

4. When there is someone on the flight who won't stop talking and you can hear them from several rows away.

11. When someone sitting near you brings outside food and it just smells gross.

13. And finally, when you land and EVERYONE just stands and you're basically trapped, crouched between the seat and the overhead bin.
