(Newser) – There are lots of reasons to dislike getting on an airplane; herewith, Guyism points out the most annoying types of people you’ll run into as you fly the friendly skies:

  • The first-class flier: Sorry, Jeff Wysaski writes to “this smug assembly of businessmen, trust fund kids and trophy wives … a little extra legroom and a warm chocolate chip cookie does not make you more important than me.”

  • The pilot: “I don’t know what it is about airline pilots, but for some reason they’re more addicted to the word ‘uhh’ then a teen girl is to shirtless vampires.”
  • The sick guy: “You’re going to cough and sneeze your way onto an airplane and share the same recycled air with a bunch of perfectly healthy strangers? That is the definition of a dick move right there.”
  • Babies: “It’s amazing how just one of these little snot-nosed balls of cute can instantly ruin the day of every passenger on board.”
