A Man Wouldn’t Stop Bothering Her Throughout Her Flight, but When She Demanded to Switch Seats, He Shouted “i’m a Nice Guy!”

A woman recently asked if she’d been wrong to move seats on an airplane journey because the autistic guy next to her kept pestering her. Here’s her story.

It was a long flight

“I was traveling alone on an 11-hour flight today,” the 19-year-old began. “And a guy who looked like he was in his 20s was in the same row as me.”

“I was exhausted because I only got four hours of sleep before the flight, but I knew I could sleep on the plane.”

The woman had settled into her seat, ready to sleep, but then the guy in her row began talking to her.

The man started telling her that he was autistic and asking her if she liked K-Pop. Even if she’d have been in the mood for talking, she couldn’t barely have gotten a word in.

Knowing that autistic people can struggle to pick up on social cues, the woman politely told him that she wanted to go to sleep and then put her headphones on to signal the “conversation” was over. But after a couple of minutes, he’d start talking to her again. This happened five times.

It happened again…

Eventually, the woman managed to nod off for a few hours, but as soon as she woke up, the guy started talking to her again.

The woman humored the man for a little while, then put her headphones back in to watch a show on her phone, but the guy repeatedly talked to her.

Eventually, the woman told the guy that she was getting annoyed with him. She was really tired; she was trying to watch her show, and she didn’t want to talk to him.

He became self-pitying

At this point, the guy launched into a self-loathing speech about how horrible he was. The woman then had to try to calm him down. Out of guilt, she suggested they could maybe talk later.

But as soon as her headphones were back in, the guy started up again. So she started ignoring him.

The guy didn’t like being ignored. He stood up in the aisle and began yelling at the woman, ranting, “Why can’t women believe not all men are bad?! Some men are on your side! I’m a nice guy! Why are you ignoring me?!”

Then he stormed off to the bathroom.

As soon as he was gone, the woman quickly called the cabin crew and asked to be moved. They couldn’t have been more helpful, and the rest of her flight passed without incident.

She asked the internet

Afterward, the woman felt guilty. After all, the guy was autistic. Should she have been kinder? She asked the online community for their thoughts.

The internet responded

The internet told the woman she’d been too kind in the first place. “You should have been more firm from the start,” said one. “‘Stop talking or I will call the flight attendants to let them know you’re harassing me.’ Now is the time to learn to stand up for yourself.”

“Autism is a spectrum,” observed another. “If this guy was traveling alone, he had enough control over his actions to not harass you.”
