Nosey Neighbors


Today’s toon is a remastered edition of a single panel toon I drew back in 2000. I think it’s still appropriate even today. I’ve been on several flights in the past where I feel like I’m being snooped on by folks sitting behind me. I’ve never been confrontational about it, but it does go noticed. Has this ever happened to you? If so, how’d you handle it?

    That is why 3M makes privacy filters polarized so you have to look dead on the screen to see it. All my road warriors have them.

    I can’t help look at other people’s phones and Laptops on Planes, Trains, etc. I don’t care what they’re doing, but I just keep thinking ‘Hmm is that the iPhone 3G or 3GS? That app seems to be running quite slowly so it must be the 3G. No wait the 3G doesn’t have customisable backgrounds on iOS4. “Excuse me is that the 16gb or 32gb model?”

    If you think someone’s watching you over your shoulder you should open a word document and type “Mind your own business” in big letters.

Tell me what you think!
