Traveling Pet Peeves

In The Mix

What are your traveling pet peeves?

Pet peeves, we all have them and they are arguably worse when we're forced into a confined space with a bunch of strangers. This week for "In The Mix" - we ask our DJs what some of their biggest pet peeves are around traveling. These might have been the fastest answers they've ever come up with! Let us know on Facebook or Instagram @991TheMix (@991WMYX on Twitter) what annoys you most when you're traveling!

Elizabeth Kay (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): “My traveling pet peeve is on an airplane when someone feels the need to have a conversation with another person three rows back. We all don't need to hear you talking to Betty about the awesome pictures you took in Vegas! Do you know what I'm saying? It drives me nuts."

Tony "Radar" Hess (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): “Here is my biggest pet peeve. When people open, *cough* open up the garlicy, chewy things in an airplane! I mean, I can't even breathe in an airplane let alone breathing your stank in. And don't even get me started on stank, okay? Ugh. Close the bags, chew 'em before you get on the plane; chew them after, not on the plane!"

Dave "Producer Dave" Stein (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): “What's my biggest pet peeve when traveling? It actually just happened to me earlier this year; I was on a train and there was two outlets sitting next to me and my phone was dying. But what do you know? The person sitting next to me used both outlets! Don't do that if you're traveling! Even if you're in a regular place, don't use two outlets for one thing."

Molly Cruz (9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.): “Okay, have you ever been on a plane and you're sitting next to someone and they have their arm on your arm rest? So annoying, I hate that! Have some conscience of other people's, you know, personal space - their space. Be polite. You're in tight quarters for a couple hours on an airplane, so, just be considerate of other people, of their space. Don't man-spread all over the place. It's just, it's rude."

Aaron Carreno (1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.): “I travel a lot. I will say, there's two things that drive me nuts. One is when you get into your terminal (or into the airport), be prepared. If you're in line, whether it's TSA-pre or the regular line to go through security, have your stuff ready! Seriously, don't wait until you get up to the TSA agent and then figure out where your boarding pass is, or where your ID is. It helps everybody behind you, that's serious. The second thing is, I've had many friends and myself where people have their hair (the seat in front of you) is hanging over the back of the seat, so I'm looking at your hair. Or your hair is starting to touch my drink or my food. Please be mindful of that when you sit on a plane. So, there you go."
