Passenger Shaming latest social media trend that shames airline travellers | Daily Mail Online
Honestly, flying is probably my least favorite thing to do. The security is a joke and a hassle, the prices are obscene, the service is horrendous, there is utterly no comfort if you're not flying first class, the food is terrible...but the worst part is being exposed to the classless and oblivious people. Just go to any terminal and look around at how people are disgusting, how some show up unwashed and with dirty clothes, how some act as if they aren't in public at all, how some people let their kids run wild, how some people act as if they are the only person in the airport as they scream on their phone, etc. And this isn't to mention the people who are obviously sick but do nothing to keep from spreading their germs to everyone else. This is why I drive anywhere I can when travelling. Flying is a last resort.

In terms of bad passenger clothing, the worst I've send was a guy in his late 20's wearing a t-shirt that said "I'm not Mr. Perfect, but I'll f*** your daughter until he comes along"

In junior high I had a friend who was clean and used deodorant, but always smelled like Doritos. It was pretty unbearable sometimes.

I have seen plenty of weird yoga positions, especially among slim young women. They can be impressive!
That might be me, although I'm not young.

I often sit cross legged.

I'm sure his mother is proud.

You sit cross legged on a flight, huh? Are you trespassing on your neighbors space with your knees?

Nope. I only do it when I'm in first class. No way to "trespass" with a six inch divider between the seats.

You bring a ruler with you when you travel? Odd.

I haven't come across anything really disgusting yet however, I was woken up from my drug induced slumber coming back from Malaysia by an asian woman screaming bloody murder. She was eventually handcuffed. Thankfully, because I was so rattled I wanted to punch her in the face myself. Turns out I guess she didn't take her meds that day, or that's the rumor that was going around the plane, lol. I had a friend who took his phone, reached around the back of his seat & took a picture of the guy sitting behind him w/the naked feet. Just...gross. People have absolutely no manners.

I guess you've never sat in first. There is a fixed armrest that is about six inches wide between the seats.

From the few times I've flown, that picture looks like business class. Nope, never been in first. Like I asked, do you bring a ruler with you when you travel? You're constantly posting measurements. It's quite amusing.
