Airplane Passenger Revolts The Internet After Being Caught On Camera Drying Their Shoes Using Plane's Vents

At this point, airline travel – particularly in coach – is about on par with a root canal. Without anesthesia. Performed by a terrifying clown. In short, it's torture.


But by far, the worst part of all has nothing to do with flying itself: It's just the people. Doofuses who can't figure out the security line, dumbdumbs holding everyone up because they can't discern the basic rudiments of putting a carry-on in a bin (who could forget this classic) – as Sartre famously said, "Hell is other people," and nowhere is this more obvious than the airborne Greyhound buses we use to go to and fro.

And this week, a newly minted "worst passenger ever" is taking the internet by storm. The crime? Drying a filthy, likely stinky sneaker with the air vent above their seat.

The incident was caught on video by Canadian professional wakeboarder Dylan Miller, and quickly went viral when he submitted it to the Instagram account Passenger Shaming, which covers, well, exactly what it sounds like.

Imagine having the shameless, devil-may-care chutzpah to pull out your nasty wet sneaker and blow its aroma around an entire plane without a care in the world. The moxie is almost inspiring!

Also, one wonders... why was the sneaker wet? Did the passenger get caught in the rain, or is it something far more nefarious, like their feet sweat so much they have to blow dry their shoes.

The mind reels.

Anyway, the passenger is in good company: feet-related passenger barbarism has enjoyed something of an internet moment of late. There was this person who basically put her feet in another passenger's hair because, you know, sure, why not?

And then there was this other person who was spied browsing the in-flight entertainment touchscreen with her toes. Just normal human behavior!

As you might expect, the ol' internet was emphatically NOT HAVING this lady and her nasty shoe.

Anyway, it's still January, so we can technically still make resolutions, right?

So let's all resolve to stop behaving like full dumpster raccoons on airplanes. It's the least we can do, those seats are already uncomfortable enough!
