Bare feet on a plane are so controversial that a passenger with smelly feet drove another so nuts that he got stabbed on arrival.
That was clearly taking matters too far, but sticking bare feet into another passenger’s space or clipping toenails on board is clearly beyond the pale.
Usually we don’t say anything in the moment, and just take out our frustrations passive aggressively. Small children have no such filter and often speak the truth as it occurs to them. So it is with Rodney Small, flying from Orlando to Houston on May 16. He noticed something on his armrest. And his father filmed the reaction.
The boy 4 year old boy notes “some stinky feet behind me” and declares “It’s a lady!…Why do you have your feet behind me?”
She removed her feet from the arm rest.
