Smart-Living 7 years Ugh, this just happened to me a couple weeks ago! Engrossed in my Glamour, the "smooth" fella next to me tried three times to engage me in lame plane conversation. What stranger asks if you're married when you haven't said two words to him? Beyond annoying. emalove 7 years I hardly ever talk to strangers when traveling...I always have my iPod playing and a magazine or book in my lap. JaimeLeah526 7 years Or anyone sitting next to you for that matter. I always feel bad talking to people who don't want to talk so I don't bother. I just let them start the conversation and always look friendly and open to conversation if I really am. Jude-C 7 years That's why I bring books everywhere I go. Reading sends the message that I'm not open to conversation and just want to be left alone. But then it's annoying when I'm really engrossed in whatever I'm reading, and some creep is all, "Whatcha readin' there?" Why can't they just read the title on the cover? AKirstin 7 years This is why I never get on a bus or a plane without my headphones. I really, really hate being solicited for conversation from strangers. austerity 7 years ROFL@Hootie Hootie 7 years The worst is when they have zoo breath! IslandGirl 7 years I agree 100%!!!!
