A WOMAN has revealed the strangest thing she does on a flight to pass the time.
Instagram user Samanthabrowntravels confessed her strange habit to her thousands of followers in a video.
In the video, she said: “I can’t watch movies on a flight. I can watch other people’s films on a flight. Strange right? I’ll watch my seatmate’s movie in front of me and see what movies they’re watching.”
She confirmed her favorite over-the-shoulder viewing position as an aisle seat diagonally in front of her — especially when watching a rom-com because there’s plenty of room to stretch out.
She added: “But here’s the weird part. People can sense that I’m watching and they will look and I will say ‘no, no, no’ and give them a blank look that I wasn’t watching your film. I was just thinking about your direction.”
In the same video, she also stated that she could not watch violent films.
If there is blood and gore, she will immediately stop looking at it, but browse the end when she is home.
Samantha also confessed that she saw all three Taken films starring Liam Neeson on the plane but never heard of them.
She ended by saying, “Is there anyone else like me? Please?”
More than 190,000 people watched the video and quickly opened up in the comments.
Instead of finding Samantha’s habit funny, many users also watched their fellow travelers’ films.
One person commented: “Oh my god!!! I thought I was the only one who did this. You took my shame away If Samantha Brown does it, I’m not that crazy.”
Another person said: “I thought I was the only one doing this on a flight. I can’t look at my own screen, but I watch everyone else’s movies and shows.”
Another admitted to helping those lurking behind the aisles: “I always turn on captions so other screen viewers can join in.”
