Being on a flight can be a little worse than someone’s shoeless feet encroaching on your personal space, but one man has found a novel solution that would make any stretcher All must be carefully thought through.
A TikTok video shared by @danielgreen2426, which has been viewed more than 300,000 times, shows the “stinky feet” of a passenger reaching down to the seat in front of her – a clear violation of travel etiquette acceptable.
In an attempt to prevent repeated irritation, the 38-second clip shows a drink can being held above the passenger’s left leg before a large drop lands on her big toe.
This tactic didn’t work at first, with Daniel needing to pour more liquid from the can before the rear passenger finally withdrew his leg.
The caption on the video reads: “The woman on the plane behind me kept putting her stinky feet under me… then she stopped.”
This isn’t the first time the issue of feet – and especially whether or not to take off your shoes on a plane – has been raised.
Two plane passengers were shamed on Instagram in 2019 after they were caught playing footsie on the headrests of first class with their bare feet.
Another passenger uploaded a series of photos on social media of the couple crossing their legs over the back of their seats.
Last year, a traveler shared how she discovered that a child was painting on her white socks during her flight, and many criticized the passenger for leaving her feet alone. next to the child’s chair.
One person responded to the Instagram post: “Only you are responsible. If your feet are somewhere where they can be ‘pulled’, they’re in the wrong place.”
Others went on to criticize the woman for choosing to take off her shoes while on the plane in the first place.
“Keep your socks inside your shoes,” one user wrote. “This is public transportation, not your personal spa day.”
