As the saying goes, desperate times call for desperate measures. We aren’t sure where this guy is coming from or where he is going, but for someone to pull a stunt like this in a plane full of people, there must be a very interesting story to accompany it.
Perhaps he got caught in a heavy rainstorm before the flight, and at the time that this picture was taken, he was on his way to the most important meeting or interview of his life. Either way, there’s got to be a very good reason why anyone would think that it’s okay to hang your socks up in a plane the way this person did.
Jeepers creepers! This Redditor seems to have had the worst flight of his life, thanks to his co-passenger ahead, with their dreadlocks hanging out of the seat. On the other hand, though, they could have also politely asked the person with the dreads to kindly move their dreads out of their legroom's space.
Most people with dreads are super down-to-earth and probably way more approachable than most people. Nevertheless, dreadlocks may be cool for some people, but for others, they may seem like a breeding ground for all sorts of tiny little critters. Regardless, no one is going to judge anyone with dreads, but perhaps keep them to yourself when you are taking a flight or using any other form of public transport, for that matter.
Where's the Balance?
It's strange to think that we can't carry more than three and a half ounces of liquid on a plane, yet some people may bring their falcons onto a plane. We get that Falconry is an old practice that bounds falcons and their owners to be very close, but can't we have some sort of a balance between three and a half ounces of liquid and birds of prey on a plane?
Not only are those sharp talons able to take out people's eyes, but they can also do some serious damage to people's skin should the bird freak out with a bout of turbulence. You better just hope that you won't be seated next to a falcon on your next plane ride.
It Could Have Waited
There's a time and a place for everything. Perhaps breaking up with a partner is best done at home or somewhere more private as opposed to in front of a plane full of people. At least this guy had the common decency to break up with his girlfriend to her face, which seems to be happening over texts more often these days.
Yes, they may have had the worst vacation together before this flight, where both parties revealed their true colors to one another for the first time, but still! He could have just waited for the trip to be over and then done it once everyone had disembarked. Not only for the sake of his co-passengers but also for his own sake because now he has to sit next to a sobbing ex-girlfriend for the remainder of the flight. We guess he didn't think that one through properly now, did he?
Do You Have Mysophobia?
We have already seen the different sorts of seatmates that one may be unwillingly placed next to in a plane, but we have not yet met a "Cheese Puff Boy" seatmate. To be fair, he can't be that bad. He seems to be minding his own business, killing time by watching movies and eating his cheese puffs.
It seems like most people would be able to tolerate sitting next to this chap, but that, of course, is not going to be the case if you suffer from mysophobia. As it turns out, mysophobia is a condition that drives people mad when they hear people making noises with their mouths, and that mainly includes eating sounds. If this condition affects you, then we really hope that you'll never get an assigned seat next to a "Cheese Puff Boy" otherwise, the sounds of them eating may indeed drive you insane!
