As some of you know I'm going to be going to be flying back to visit my family at the end of the month so I thought now would be a good time to share with you guys my nightmare passenger story about a woman I had the misfortune of sitting next to.
I have sat next to some nightmare passengers on some of my flights but I have to say this lady I'm about to tell you about takes the cake. Your probably going to be appalled at her behavior. On one of my flights from Detroit to SF I had to sit next to this woman for about 5 hours and she was all about crowding others personal space. I kid you not the whole time I was ready to throw her out the emergency exit.
The first thing she did when we got in the air was take off her shoes and put her un-socked feet up on the backs of the armrest's of the row in front of us. I don't know about you guys but I think feet are pretty icky especially when they are some random strangers feet! Now I don't mind people taking their shoes off but when she also took off her socks and then proceeded to use the armrest's in front of us like they were her personal foot rest she really crossed a line.
Unfortunately for me she didn't stop there it wasn't very comfortable putting her feet up on the armrest so she decided it would be okay for her to sit Indian style in her seat... Keep in mind she was in the middle and while she was a small lady she wan't small enough to do that. I have very little patience for people invading my personal bubble so when her icky foot touched my leg on more than on occasion I almost lost it. After I warned her very nicely once she just so happened to touch me again. I'm going to be honest my second warning wasn't really a warning it was more of non verbal fierce stare, but lucky for me she got the hint that I wasn't about to sit there for the rest of the flight with her gross foot touching my leg.
After I gave her the evil eye she toned down her bubble invading but she was still extra annoying because she was super fidgety and just not someone I would ever want to get stuck next to ever again.
Do you have any Nightmare Passenger Stories?
If you do how did you handle that person?
