List Rules Upvote the people who bother you the most on planes

Whenever you board a plane, you hope that everything runs smoothly. Of course, that means safety, but it also means not having to deal with the many types of obnoxious, selfish people that all somehow pile on to your particular flight when we all wish that they were were private jet owners. The wide variety of awful people come in various shapes and forms and can range from adults to toddlers. That said, this list points out the bottom of the barrel when it comes to air travel, and believe us, there are A LOT of people who fit these stereotypes. Yes, there are a few more of these people that could have made this list, but these frequent flyers can truly ruin your traveling experience.

Who are the worst people on every flight? That's up to you to decide, since different things anger different people. Take a look and upvote the people who manage to bother you the most.

Gross! Imagine sitting next to someone who reeks of B.O. for an entire flight. Even if it is a short haul, your appetite will be ruined by this oblivious fool.

Parents, control your kids! Whether that means a coloring book, DVD (with headphones), Benadryl, Nyquil, Tylenol PM, Xanax, Morphine, whatever... Do something! Your precious angel's spastic kicking makes everyone else angry and uncomfortable.

This person sets off a chain reaction that catches everyone in his or her vertical row off-guard. Once the first guy leans back, it causes both physical and psychological discomfort for the person behind him - especially if there's a drink or open laptop on their tray.

We've all been there: You're patiently waiting at an airport gate, and you hear the shrill shriek of a phone ring. A few seconds later, you hear another ring, a different one, just as loud. In horror and bewilderment, you notice that the guy a few seats down is using his precious time to try out every ringer on his cell phone... Is this really happening? Are you taking crazy pills? Well, multiply this annoyance by 10,000 when you're gliding through the air in an aluminum tube with no way to escape. Hey, noisy guy: you're selfish and rude.

Ever get on a plane and see that all of the overheard bin space is taken? Even worse, have you noticed that it's usually one person shoving their belongings up top without leaving room for anyone else? The end result usually means you having to check your bag at the gate, which is really annoying. Put your coat under the seat in front of you like everyone else.

There's nothing good about traveling while sick. In fairness, this person probably feels bad enough on the inside... but knowing that you can catch that mystery ailment only makes the whole plane ride miserable.

Sometimes (most of the time), you just want some peace and quiet on your flight. This traveler doesn't seem to get the hint, even when you have your eyes on your book, your headphones in your ears, and your head on your pillow.
