Today, while flying home, two little girls started chanting, "We're all going to die." I'm an extremely anxious flyer. FML

Start chanting, "Where are their parents?!?"

It works wonders on a plane to have sound cancelling headphones, plug them into your phone and just listen to your favourite songs. It will help to keep you calm :)

Don't worry. They might be anxious flyers too

Yeah, come on. Everyone knows that the best way to battle anxiety is to chant and predict your own demise.

Because people don't like to be told the truth if it collides with their own beliefs...

You should tell the girls that they are more likely to die in a car accident than die while flying. Or maybe they're just trying to be funny.

This is a true fact. You ARE indeed more likely to die driving home from the airport than when flying to it. In fact, chances of dying in a plane crash are about the chances of you winning the lottery. I don't know why #2 has gotten dislikes. Perhaps they don't know their facts.

Is that when the horror music started? Did the girls start chanting demonic spells? Yeah, you're gonna die.

Start chanting, "Where are their parents?!?"

The parents were right next to them! They were real winners themselves. The mother shoved aside my husband's luggage so she could put her hat in the overhead compartment. Thank goodness they only chanted for half an hour out of the nine hour flight.

Oh god that would give me a panic attack

Oh im now sure how im going to die i think it maybe toilet related

can you even say that on a plane?

I don't think there are rules against chanting reminders of our mortality on a plane.

Only if the specifics don't involve bombs or Muslims.

Actually telling people 'don't say bomb' doesn't stop bombs on planes. They just make you get a false sense of security.

Not in Murica you can't!

The brain can do some pretty amazing things while anxious. It's probably no big deal, OP, but did you notice if the other passengers could actually see the little girls too? Do you still see them?

But did you die?

What if OP was not kill?

Well the girls are right, but it really a matter of when... and highly unlikely to happen on a commercial airliner. That said, their behavior is unacceptable aboard a flight.
