Diply Social Team

We've all been there, trapped in a metal tube at 30,000 feet, desperate for some shut-eye. Imagine being seated next to someone who just won't stop talking. 😩 My recent flight turned into a real-life drama when my row-mate, 'C', an autistic guy in his 20s, decided that silence was not an option. Despite my polite hints and outright requests for some quiet time, 'C' turned our shared row into his personal stage. As I struggled to maintain my composure, the situation escalated to a full-blown aisle showdown! 🍿✈️ Let's dive into the story that unfolded high above the clouds.
