Good news: no person in the middle seat next to me.— Sara Novi? (@NovicSara) September 23, 2016
Bad news: terrifying baby doll that belongs to the man in the window seat next to me.
If a passenger sitting next to you on a plane is unruly, you can still try to sort out the uncomfortable situation by talking it out with them.
But what if the annoying person seated next to you is a lifeless, lifelike doll that obviously cannot speak?
Well, that’s what happened with one Sara Novic after she was forced to sit beside a creepy doll during her flight from Cincinnati to New York.
Apparently, a man bought a ticket for the doll, named Barbara, using fake passport information:
Okay he bought it a ticket.— Sara Novi? (@NovicSara) September 23, 2016
Novic live-tweeted the experience:
The flight attendant is trying to explain to him why he shouldn't put the doll's name on the ticket next time he buys her one.— Sara Novi? (@NovicSara) September 23, 2016
Apparently the TSA was frantically trying to match the name and birthrate he provided UNTIL THEY REALIZED...— Sara Novi? (@NovicSara) September 23, 2016
She took a photo, of course
Just when the woman thought her nightmare flight was over, she found herself sitting next to the doll again on the second leg of her journey.
I'm on her right side this time. In case you need a better view. pic.twitter.com/pXnO0KSIux— Sara Nović (@NovicSara) September 23, 2016
