In-flight Movies

Dear Airline Pilots,

Unless it is decreasing at an alarming and uncontrollable rate, I am not really interested in 

what altitude we are flying at, so please stop interrupting my in-flight movies to tell me!

Not Just About You.

I wrote this in response to a video(*) I saw online about a man who goes up to strangers 

and tells them he is considering suicide, in order to film their response. 

I began to wonder, what would I say if someone approached me.

 

Notes:

1. If reading about suicide troubles you, stop now.

2. This is fiction. Don't worry, it's not about me. 

 

What would you say?
