What’s the rule on asking someone to use headphones during a flight?

(2/2) She said “why?” I said “because I know a lot of people are trying to work or sleep, and might find your music distracting.” She said “It’s not music. It’s Instagram videos. And I don’t wear headphones, I’m an artist.”

“Ma’am can you please stop shitting on the sidewalk?"
"I’m an artist, so no."

Get the flight attendant involved. Pretty sure you can have her arrested by Homeland Security when you land

"I'm an artist too. A martial artist. You continue to express your artistic side to me, I'll express mine to you."

On the plus side, we now know “I’m an artist” is a legit response to pretty much anything.

Someone is listening to something without headphones? That’s a no-no

Headphones in any public situation. Mandatory. You’re not a jerk if you ask. They are if they don’t comply.

OMG, I would have lost my mind at the music, much less her ridiculous response. What did you say???

Usually it’s kids playing games on their parents’ iPads on the flight that drives me nuts. The sound of coins being collected for hours on end. So ridiculous

If it makes you feel any better, I have a friend who sat next to a guy on a cross country flight who was watching porn on his iPad and wouldn’t shut it off.

The crappy thing about these situations, to me, is they make ME feel like the bad guy for asking the person to respect other people. But you were totally in the right. Next time talk to the flight attendant

Go to the bathroom. While at the back of the plane, tell the flight attendant. They can be good at not pointing fingers but diffusing a situation without you having to sit with someone glaring at you the rest of the flight.

Source/ side story: flew from NY to LA with an elderly woman about to vomit for most of the flight. She got up and down dozens of times, but the last round... she was just out of energy. I went to the back and warned the flight attendant that she didn’t look well and might need one of the empty seats in the very back row. She thanked me and sent me back to my seat. Sure enough, in less than a minute when I came back, she threw up into her scarf and the disposable plane blanket I immediately gave to her. Flight attendant showed up in ten seconds with a bag and rescued all of us from what could have been MUCH worse!
