Former Flight Attendant Reveals The Worst Thing She's Ever Seen A Passenger Do
We've all got on to a flight to realise we're in the hot spot - no, not the cockpit. Even better, we've only gone and bagged the fucking window seat. Buzzing, this will be great.
All we want to do is compare pools as we touch down in warmer climates. We sit down, belt up (safety first, kids) and get out the in-flight magazine to look at the over-priced things we're not going to buy because we thought forward and purchased our favourite Boots meal deal in the Terminal.
Oh wait, what's that prodding me in the back of my resting arm? SOMEONE'S BARE TOE. FFS COME ON.
We've all experienced some horror thanks to another passenger, whether they're on the flight at the same time as you are or they've simply left copious amounts of litter behind.
And the worst bit about it - there's nowhere to run, you're locked inside a huge multi-million pound metal structure. You can't even turn your damn phone on to vent via social media about the situation you've found yourself forced into.
You can let off the steam before or afterwards (at least your caption should be on point after stewing about it for hours) - but be sure to tag Instagram account 'Passenger Shaming', because they're showcasing the worst habits from fellow travellers.
The brains behind the social media account is Shawn Kathleen. She's a former flight attendant and found herself so fed up with passengers' actions that she decided to expose them.
Things that have been brought up range from people clipping their toe nails and picking the heels of their feet, shaving their feet, fighting and allowing children to draw all over the aircraft.
There is one incident that sticks in her mind and she recalled it on Australian breakfast show Sunrise On 7, saying: "The worst thing that I've personally seen was probably a gentleman who caught his hair on fire while he was in the lavatory during a flight smoking crack cocaine... So that happened."
Well, you wouldn't want to fly to Benidorm without smoking a bit of crack now, would you?
Most people can relate to the manky toe fiasco which is really grim, especially when these are your digits:
The Mirror reported that Shawn Kathleen explained that she felt compelled to start the Passenger Shaming account after seeing so much 'crazy stuff' happening on board, especially as she knew it was happening for cabin crew on other airlines too.
And who can blame her? The less bare feet creeping into our personal space, the better.
