"If I break up with her during the flight, then she can't make a scene."

  • That guy before the flight, probably

u/delayedsunflower Jan 28 '23

I choose to believe that he broke up with her on the plane KNOWING this is exactly what would happen. It's the sort of place where people will remove you immediately for making a scene.

Imagine the nightmare it would be if you wanted to get her out of your home while she's in this sort of state.

u/bublyDrinker Jan 28 '23 Gold

I’m a big proponent of the idea that if you are in any way afraid for your safety, or think you’d be manipulated out of your choice, you can and should probably break up over a call or text.

I know it gets a bad reputation, but your if safety is at risk, you don’t ‘owe’ them the opportunity to put you in danger.

u/jw_216 Jan 28 '23

Even then, it’s still a risk if you live with them and they have to move out.

u/Rocket5454 Jan 28 '23

I've heard enough horror stories from people in toxic relationships who break up in person and regret immediately. Sometimes breaking up over text is the best option, or do what I did and do it somewhere public that's safe.

I met with my ex in the park that's a neutral public area where I felt the safest. He dad is a cop so I didn't want to meet at her place after the way I've heard him talk.

I know it may seem silly to some but that fear is very very real. If you're going to break up in person, do it somewhere you feel safest. In public while there are plenty of people around, it isn't a bad idea. It's definitely a safer method.

More likely the title is click bait and she’s throwing a fit for getting kicked off the plain and falls to the ground when they place their hands on her to try and delay the inevitable. She’s halfway back on the plane and then they walk her up and she ducks into a seat. I doubt the boyfriend was sitting up there, she’s just going full Karen before she’s 30

Edit: yes I’m fully aware I left an autocorrect typo of plain instead of plane. It’s clearly spelled correctly in the next sentence. I’ve left the error intact bc some folks made jokes about the error and I am not trying to deprive Reddit commenters of appropriate context to their remarks.

I think what happened is she saw a ufo and the pilot was her long dead father who died in the war. He just winked at her and before he sped off she saw that he had a gay lover as his copilot.

Fun fact: the ground crew is always hanging out just under the plane during the flight. How does anyone think the landing gear comes down. They rarely have to get pulled into the cabin for incidents like this.

u/Dense-Entertainer-48 Jan 28 '23

Honestly, I would have broken up with an ex this way if I had thought about it.

She told me if I broke up with her she’d kill me or kill herself, she was insanely abusive and would claim she would lie and tell people I hit her and she would hit herself.

Causing a scene on an airplane means she loses that ability to lie about what happens immediately. You also often end up in a psych ward for 72 hours if you cause a plane to emergency land. So I would have broke up years earlier on a plane because I’d have witnesses to her hitting herself, screaming crying and hitting me, and then likely officers to help get her away from me.

If I had a Time Machine, I’d redo it immediately this way.

68

u/ikeif Jan 28 '23

I mean, all those scenes of “breaking up in a public place” make a lot more sense.

I assumed it was “so you wouldn’t make a scene” but it’s also “lots of witnesses and possibly cameras for when you start making threats or claims that aren’t happening.”

Glad you're away from her now, that's a terrible abuse to live through. I hope you're feeling freer and have people who support you nearby.

The plane idea would be a tricky set up but worth a shot if there aren't people in your life who can help out especially. It's so important to have somebody who will trust and protect you, hell even someone in the room with you during a break up with an abuser if packing up and running away isn't available.

I just sat next to an actual baby on my last flight. At first I was like “oh god here we go” but the baby was perfect the entire time. She was playful before takeoff and then slept the entire trip. Phew

257

u/Jack_Hammond Jan 28 '23

I remember sitting next to a mother and her infant child on a three-hour domestic flight. At first I was wary that I'd be in for it. But an hour or so in, when the sun rose and filled the plane with a kind of picturesque morning glory, I looked over and saw mother and child at the window seat, asleep, framed perfectly by the sunrise. Any apprehension melted away, and I became too philosophical about the beauty of motherhood and all of that to care when the poor infant wailed in the last half hour or so.

u/LadyEllaOfFrell Jan 28 '23

I once had to travel overseas with my five-month-old (a two-day trip with several flights and layovers) to attend a family funeral, and I was so apprehensive about other passengers hating us. She was pretty damn good for most of the flights, but I remember apologizing to one seat mate when I had to nurse her (baby had a disability and physically couldn’t take a bottle, but was too young for solids).

The woman said no worries, she’d had babies, too; and then when I finished nursing she offered to hold the baby the rest of the flight so I could sleep.

I cried.

Thanks for being decent to your seat mate when her baby wailed, is what I’m getting at. :)

u/[deleted] Jan 28 '23

I’ve flown over 2 million miles

anyone who gets on a parent over a “screaming” baby is an asshole

obviously NO ONE is thrilled

but yelling at anxious parents is only going to make things worse

typically the issue is the baby can’t “pop” their ears (because they’re a baby)

and if it’s never happened to you, let me tell you it’s INSANELY painful (like a large needle in your ear)

there are a few things you can try to help the child clear their ears (like stroking the babies throat to encourage them to swallow which might clear their ears), but otherwise you can only comfort the child

The last half hour is almost always bad for small babies.

Yeah. I couldn't imagine breaking up some place where you're stuck with the person. Even in a restaurant, either of you can walk out. On a plane, there is no where to go and you're sitting right next to them. All I can think is he didn't plan to do it there but something she said or did finally pushed him over the edge to just do it. From what we can see in this video there is at least one good reason he may have for breaking up.

If you do it right before a 2 week trip to Cancun, she gets booted off, you try to enjoy yourself, but she has 2 weeks for crazy revenge. So you come home to menstrual blood finger paintings on your wall, your tires have been slashed, car windows broken, everything you care about has been torched.

If she gets booted off on your way home you got a few hours head start to change the locks, barricade the place, get some holy water etc.

I dated someone who would have reacted like this in public.

I tried to do it in private. We were living together. They absolutely refused to leave the house. They literally became dead weight and tried to do EVERYTHING to get me to take it back. He did not leave the house for 4 days. I stupidly relented, although I told myself: I'm going to have to be the one that leaves next time.

One afternoon I had the place to myself. I gathered everything I could expecting I had about a two-hour lead on him in the worst-case scenario. THAT time it took, and I was away from any of the aftermath. He held my remaining possessions hostage for three months until he realized I was holding firm.

Some people just can't be broken up with. They will take you down with them because it's such a personal affront to them. I always remember the line in Gone Girl when Ben Affleck says something like "when I found out Amy had disappeared I was secretly relieved." That’s when I realized I was in a bad relationship and that it would ultimately end.

Last year my gf broke up with me right as we were driving back home from vacation. Her kids and mine were in the car. That was about the most awkward 4 hour drive I’ve done. I didn’t scream though.

u/thepottsy Jan 28 '23

I broke up with my ex, while on vacation at the beach, and then had to spend 3 days/nights stuck in a beach house with her, before driving 4 hours to get home. In my defense, I had planned to do it after we got back home, but she pushed me past my limits.

Honestly, I think she’s just crazier than shit and for whatever reason he had enough. Finally snapped and ended it. Cut to her losing it.

I bet he just had enough of her shit like this. He knew it was going to be Biblically bad no matter what and decided to just rip off the band aid in public so he had witnesses. She is probably the type who had threatened to "Gone Girl" herself if he ever broke things off between them.

Dude even if I were with the chillest girl in the world and wanted to break up with her, I wouldn't do it on a fucking plane midflight. Like best case scenario, you're now sitting awkwardly next to someone who wants to be nowhere near you right now. And as you boarded the flight together, you also likely planned to travel from the airport at your destination together, so unless they drove and you planned to call someone for a ride, get a taxi/uber/lyft or a rental car, whatever, you're also telling them they have to arrange for a ride at the last possible moment when they get off the plane. That's assuming they're not heading out on vacation together or something too and now there are hotel reservations and maybe prepaid costs on the line too.

Like just pretend to sleep until the flight is over, focus on getting your bags and to your car, drop them off and THEN tell them you want to break up. It will make it better and easier for both of you to have an easy exit from the conversation.

I'd guess they got in some kind of argument where it resulted in that. Can't imagine someone would plan to breakup on a plane

u/BigMax Jan 28 '23 I'll Drink to That To The Stars

Yeah, plenty of possibilities. Maybe they went on a vacation where she was a total disaster, and the whole time he's thinking "the second we get home this relationship is over." And he held it in, held it in, almost like having to pee while you're driving to a bathroom.

And she said or did one more crazy thing, and he just couldn't hold it in, knew in his brain that he shouldn't do it, but just like sometimes your bladder is going to ignore your brain and just let go, in this case his willpower finally collapsed, and he couldn't hold in that pressure anymore, he just let that stream of breakup energy flow.

My brother’s girlfriend of a year invited him on a 2 week coastal holiday with her family. Got there, checked in and she broke up with him.

He hiked the 1000kms home.

1988 or close to the year.

My hot take: The guy knew she was going to do this. And in the past and know it will get violent real quick. This was the only way he could think of to break up, have witnesses, and have a trained crew separate them before any battery occurs. She seems like the type where he even put his hands out to defend himself she’d press charges. He might be a genius.

53

u/Prestigious-Phase131 Jan 28 '23

I guess, and doing it in public is smart if you're worried for your safety or don't want to deal with this kind of reaction by yourself. Though i'd just do it in the airport or something so I can make a quicker get away because I can't imagine how the rest of this flight went.

u/kestrel151 Jan 28 '23

Agreed. At the gate, preferably while waiting on the flight home. Optimal breakup parameters.

Then he was dumber than dogshit, when they tell you to break up with someone in public they mean in a restaurant where they can stomp out and go call their mama or best friend not when they're trapped with you in a tube 30,000 ft in the air, hell we've all seen another video of a poor girl getting broken up with on the airplane and that didn't go well either. Jesus, breaking up in text would have been better than this debacle.

Absolutely I understand why, but what I can't wrap my head around is why he did it on a plane where he has to stay where he is and can't escape. Like did he expect her to be cheery and gung-ho then be okay to finish the flight sitting in extremely close proximity to him? He seems to be lacking some critical thinking.

Everyone is assuming that he planned to break up with her. Maybe it just sort of happened, like last straw type of thing. Like they were getting into an argument about something and he finally decided that this was the point of no return. I can't see this being planned. Break up on a full flight and have to sit next to her for the entire ride. He's probably sitting there, knowing that he made the right decision.

Theory: He breaks up on a plane because he knows she'll flip out and get escorted off the flight.

Edit: I'm an idiot. My gf is asleep next to me so I didn't have volume on or even see "mid flight." I'll just, not post next time lol.

As someone who's personally witnessed an abusive woman partner multiple times, my buddy did the same thing. Broke it off in public > she reacted similarly > police came. I never asked him if he feared her so much that that's why he broke up with her in public.
