There’s nothing quite like trying to get comfy on a plane. The spaces around the seats are generally quite small when you’re flying in economy, so it may be quite challenging to be expected to stay confined within your seat for the full flight. We have already seen the creeping toes and the hanging arms.
But who thought that trying to get comfortable in an airplane required a nimble little yoga stretch? Perhaps this move is only for those who are capable of pulling such a stunt without breaking any bones. The reason that we don’t see this move too often is probably because it takes a lot of dexterity to pull something like this off!
Common Juncture for Weirdos
The airplane is full of all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures. If there ever is a time that you'll get to see the sort of people that make you stop and wonder, it may just be on an airplane. Think about it: you're embarking on a journey with people who could be coming from the other side of the world.
There are going to be cultural differences on any given flight, which is just a meeting point for strangers from all over, and that's okay. Perhaps in this person's world, it's okay to throw your pistachio nutshells on the floor with no remorse, but clearly, this is offensive to whoever took this picture and, of course, to whoever is going to have to clean it up! At least we can say that the world would be a very dull place if everyone had the same cultures and behaviors.
Gloves Will Have to Do
We all know how it goes on an airplane. You want to get comfy since, well, you may be stuck in the same seat for anything from 2 to 16 hours or more. What's the first thing that people do to get comfortable? Remove their shoes. That's all good, but it may become an issue if you've just removed shoes, which are tough to remove and tough to put back on, and then you've just realized that you need to go to the toilet.
Of course, you're not going to put your shoes back on to go to the bathroom. Too much of a mission! That's when you make a plan and reach for something that'll quickly cover your feet while you head to the restroom. This person reached for hand gloves, and at least she gave a lot of people a good laugh!
Airplane Nail Care
As we've seen before, airports and flights are breeding grounds for all sorts of strange creatures. Since it's a place where all sorts of people from all over the world meet, you are bound to run into some funny situations or behaviors that may not seem normal to you, but you better believe that it's someone else's norm.
This man thinks it's completely normal to be cutting nails out in public with a nail-cutting device. Whether you use a nail clipper or a nail-cutting device, cutting your nails on an airplane or anywhere in public, for that matter, is definitely not everybody's norm. And this is clear with the #passengershaming that this Tweep used to point out this strange behavior.
Can We Just Opt for Normal Snacks on the Plane?
As you can see, stashing your seed shells or any other rubbish bits in an airplane seat pouch is bound to infuriate some people. Perhaps the best solution to this is to just avoid snacks that leave a trail of mess behind, like these seed shells when you're flying. There are literally a million other things to choose from when it comes to snacking. Why not go for a modest muffin or a protein bar?
Certain nuts and seeds can really just wait until you get somewhere like your private home or just anywhere that's not in an airplane. Not only is the mess they make annoying, but it's even worse when you watch people eating these types of snacks. With every little seed, of which there are hundreds, there comes a little crackling sound every time they try to remove the shell. Very annoying!
