How to deal with an annoying fellow passenger

Ever get stuck next to someone on a train, bus or airplane, and that person just really bugs you? Thanks to the wonders of forwarded email, here's a way of dealing with them. It only works if you have a laptop computer with you.

1) Open your laptop case and remove the computer.

2) Position the computer so that your fellow passenger can clearly see the screen.

3) Close your eyes, tilt your head toward the sky, and mumble under your breath.

4) Then open this link.

Let the good times roll.

I'm guessing that opening that screen on a plane might result in arrest or something worse.

Lulu, you think? I meant to add the caveat on there, make sure you have bond money and your lawyer's business card and contact information with you when you do this.

Danny, thank you. We aim to please.

Bwahahahahaha! Nice!

Or you can try this...

Nice work Bubs! I love how portable and important your blog is.

Bubs said...

Thank YOU, Dale. I am just a humble time-waster.

Tanya, I couldn't get that link to work. Dang it. Try again?

Wait. I did it and there was a countdown, but no explosion or anything. Did I do it wrong?

OK, that was pretty hilarious, but not quite so practical. I can tell you what my husband does when he flies redeyes and gets stuck next to one of those people. He talks about how hard it is for him to sleep on planes, coerces said chatter into agreement and then offers Tylenol PM. Apparently this works like a charm every time.

The only thing better would have been if it were an Adult Swim product. Then the Boston Police could really freak out...

Bubs said...

echo, I thought of running a disclaimer for that reason. I still haven't seen a picture of the Boston "devices" but come ON--there wasn't a cop out there who'd never seen Adult Swim?

Ten, I like that. It probably produces a more predictable effect than offering shots of tequila.

Chris, nothing wrong. It just leaves you hangin'.
