#6 Why is this necessary: Stinky bare feet on planes...

foot My "Why is this necessary" blog feature has been called out as a favorite by one my favorite bloggers, so I was inspired to be on the look out for content. As it turns out, finding content for this category is rather simple, but the Rainman-with-a-camera moment required for snapping an accompanying photo in the name of the blog can be a bit awkward.

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.
