“Ugh, it’s so cramped in here with all these nasty people breathing on me.” If you didn’t like people before – you hate them now.

“So how many filthy people have touched that filthy knob? Like, millions? It’s ok, I’ll hold it – for the next 12 hours.”
“I can’t believe that person just passed me my complimentary orange juice with their fingers all over the rim of the cup. Forget it. I wasn’t thirsty anyway.”
“What in the hell is that smell coming from the bathroom? I know there’s a toilet and all – but that doesn’t smell human!”
“Doesn’t all deadly epidemics start in airports, just like they show in the movies?” If you saw Contagion with Gwyneth Paltrow – or a million other films with the same disease killing premise – they all start with that cougher in the airport getting on a plane.
“Don’t forget to pack the hand sanitiz… oh, yeah… that’s right. No bringing liquids on board.” Yup, they’ll confiscate your only protection.
