I was on a flight from Tampa to Louisville returning home from a business trip. I always try to get an aisle because I’m a bit claustrophobic. This rather large man was sitting in the window seat when I boarded. We said the usual pleasantries and shortly afterwards, the flight took off. Within 30 minutes, the man was sound asleep with his head against the window, sawing logs like there was no tomorrow.
The flight attendant came through the plane serving beverages. By this time, the man was snoring so loudly, people several rows back were encouraging me to “accidentally” wake him up. When the flight attendant got to our row, the man had shifted in his seat and his head was on my shoulder.
All of a sudden, there was a loud bang. The guy was not only snoring, he was also farting very loudly. These were LADs (loud and deadly).
The flight attendant apologized to me, said there wasn’t much she could do. Thankfully, a few minutes later the flight attendant came back and asked me to go with her. There was a seat open in first class! I escaped Mr. Farts and Snores.
