One Hundred Word Stories – One Hour Flight


Write about someone who irritates you.


When Howard hit the aisle of the plane it was a sobering moment. He had for the past hour been at his most unsobering best. His fellow travelers were relived they had arrived and thankful they had come across Howard on a one-hour flight.

He had regaled all around him with tales of, he thought, adventure but the thing that pissed off those around him was putting the hard word on his travelling companion.

So it came as a surprise to Howard as he stood up to leave that the passenger in front tripped him as he walked past.

    I’ve been on flights where one of the passengers was a bit, um, tipsy. They aren’t fun when they get loud and obnoxious. Thanks for joining me in my little flash fiction thing, Michael. 🙂

    I don’t think I could manage even 1 hour with such confined company. Good write, though!

      Sometimes that one hour can seem an eternity…..thanks for reading Stella….have a good evening which I know is now at a late hour…

        It’s midnight–but I’ll be up roaming around with words in my head till around 6am 🙂 One hour of that guy would surely fuel terrorist fantasies…not a good thing.

    One would be tempted to slip him a Mickey Finn 🙂
