A traveller has taken to social media in outrage after spying someone's bare feet on the plane poking out and placed on top of their armrest.
It's a sad world we live in now - any sort of public etiquette having gone down the drain.
People now shout out and make 'jokes' in the cinema during a film, concert goers throw things at performers and -apparently - passengers think it's acceptable to whip off not only their shoes but also socks in the confined environment of a plane.
A plane passenger has spoken out after spotting someone's bare tootsy toes peeping out from behind them, wiggling away on their arm rest.
The plane passenger took to the Reddit thread to rant about their unwanted sighting.
They said: "Barely boarded into a five-hr flight and this lady snuck her bare feet to push off my arm off the armrest.
"Why are people so nasty."
It didn't take long for fellow Redditors to flock to the post to suggest ways for the traveller to banish the bare tootsy-toes from view.
One user suggested: "I’m a laid back person but that’s an immediate stand up, turn around, 'put those things away right now' from me."
"Lift the arm rest, pretend like you didn't even notice. Bonus points if her toes get pinched in the process.
"Edit: I've been told you can't lift armrests by the window, so now I suggest you put your elbow on the arm rest (with a lot of weight). Pretend you're adjusting while simultaneously breaking the bones in her feet," another said.
A third suggested pouring 'water' on the bare toes.
A fourth commanded the traveller to 'just say something' otherwise they are simply 'allowing it to happen'.
Although, another replied: "That would require social skills. We don't do that here on Reddit."
And a final resolved: "My BIL told me he wipes the condensation off his water bottle, pretends to sneeze, and flicks it on their feet."
The original user and bare feet sufferer took to the thread to update users along their journey.
Thanking everyone for 'the solid advice,' they said their arm rest had been relieved from the 'nasty toes' and they had 'wiped it down' for good measure.
"Told her to please do not it again and if she does, I’ll call the FA. And if she doesn’t listen, good thing I have a water bottle in handy," they added.
In a later update, they resolved: "One hr into flight - armrest is still feet free. Lady did not apologize, just put her feet down with a b***h face.
"Lucky for her, I also have a b***h face with pregnancy hormones so two can play this game. Don’t ever let these f**kers get away with this crap."
