#6 Why is this necessary: Stinky bare feet on planes...
By lskrocki on Jan 21, 2007
Anyway, the stinky feet on airplanes issue has been brought up before, but it's usually men who are most likely to commit this smelly behavior. Not this time -- while commuting back to Colorado, a female college athlete wearing dress shoes with no socks (sitting next to me, of course) decided to liberate her stench emitting feet.
I wondered if there was a non-offending way to queue her to put her shoes on. All I came up with was "Do you smell that? I hope they aren't serving spoiled pickles on this flight, because I'm allergic to them."
In the name of tolerance, I settled with pointing my vent at her feet.
