Ever been stuck on a long-haul flight with a chatty seatmate? 😴 Imagine that, but with a twist. Our heroine, a 19-year-old young woman, boards an 11-hour flight, hoping to catch up on some much-needed sleep. But her plans are thwarted by 'C', a fellow passenger who just can't take a hint. Despite her polite attempts to signal she's not in the mood for conversation, 'C' persists. The drama unfolds... 🛫🗣️🙄

A Turbulent Flight: Who's the Real Villain Here?
In the end, our heroine finds herself questioning her actions. Did she do the right thing? Could she have been more patient? After all, 'C' was autistic and perhaps didn't fully grasp the social cues. But then again, everyone has the right to their personal space and peace, don't they? 😕 Let's hear what the internet has to say about this high-altitude drama. 🍿
