Mom Worried Her Autistic Son Would Bother His Plane Seatmate, But They Became Friends Instead

By

You never know what kind of person you're going to end up sitting next to on an airplane. It's always a total crapshoot. You could hit it off and fall in love with the person in the next seat, or you could argue the whole time over who deserves to put their elbow on the armrest.
