I can't focus or concentrate when someone is talking non-stop; somethiing in my brain just takes it all and dismisses it, or doesn't even hear 99% of it. I can't process that kind of talking. I can't keep up with fast talk or people who move around and gesture alot while speaking. I guess it's just too much stimulation for my brain.
I'd rather switch seats to get away from the talker. To me the ideal seat-mate on an airplane will say hello and engage in a minute or two of friendly conversation, then nod right off to sleep.
If only there was an option for making them trade their seats...
somewhere to sit is better then nowhere at all and worth giving up to stop listening to raves.
Give up my seat.
There's something nice about 'down time'.
