You hit that one on the head. One of the very few times in all my years of flying I had to get "nasty" with a seat mate was coming back from Fort Lauderdale. The person was coming back from a "Pampered Chef" convention. At first I was polite and listened to her sales pitch but after a few minutes I took the catalog and said I'll give you a call if there's something I like. A few minutes later she started on again about all the wonderful "stuff" they had. I just said "I'm going to try and nap and I'm not interested." About five minutes later she nudged me in the ribs and started again. I wasn't very nice and basically said: "I'm not buying your crap, so shut the **** up." She never said a word for the next three hours, until we landed at MSP. Then she said: "You didn't have to be so rude."
Maybe I was the worst person she ever sat next to.
