Flying can be very convenient because it means you are only stuck traveling for a few hours, rather than days on end. However being stuck in an airplane, surrounded by strangers, is definitely not my definition of a good time! Most people should know that its common courtesy not to put your feet up on the back of someone’s seat, take your shirt off, or clip your fingernails while on an aircraft. If you think that would be a no-brainer, think again. Well one person setup an Instagram account shaming these rude passengers. These passengers have no shame whatsoever. If they act like this in public, you can imagine what they are like at home. On second thought, you probably don’t want to think about that.
It’s common courtesy not to put your feet up on the back of someone’s seat, but some travelers haven’t received the memo and here are the photos to prove it.
Passenger Shaming is a relatively new platform for disgruntled travelers to shame bad habits and space-hogging fellow passengers like this man who obviously thought he was still at home.
It was set up in January 2013 to highlight some of the less than desirable habits some have adopted while flying, including leaving used diapers and food on the floor.
This man decided being seated on a busy plane was the perfect time to clip his fingernails.
The photos, like this one of a woman resting her feet on the tray table, are posted to Facebook and Instagram.
Passenger Shaming was created by Shawn Kathleen who has been a flight attendant since 2010.
People have captured their fellow passengers in all sorts of weird sleeping positions, including this man who decided it was a good idea to sleep with his feet in the aisle.
Even flight attendants are happy to get in on the passenger shaming with one stewardess finding a set of teeth in the seat pocket.
This man who appeared to be using a pillow case instead of an eye mask drew attention from others. Don’t mind he also fully unbuttoned his shirt.
Surely this can’t be comfortable? The Facebook page has drawn attention from passengers from around the world and currently has more than 17,500 likes.
This woman’s attire was enough to annoy one passenger who anonymously submitted this photo.
This man managed to fall asleep with his hand down his pants much to the disgust of others.
But it seems he’s not the only one with this gentleman drifting right off to sleep.
Shawn Kathleen, who has been a flight attendant since 2010, said her pet peeve is people not flushing the toilet. But imagine her shock when this photo of urine in the sink was sent through.
It was certainly a good flight for this passenger whose in-flight entertainment was interrupted by a mop of hair.
This passenger’s long legs were on display for everyone to see.
This passenger chose to rest their feet on the head of someone else, presumably someone they knew, but it still disgusted others.
