Over the weekend, Reddit user u/Addian4 shared a not-so-pleasant flight experience to the online forum. In the photo, we can see a pair of dirty bare feet placed atop of the headrest belonging to the woman in front of them. We see the woman’s scarred facial expression who is sitting in front with the dirty feet dangling over them. The Reddit user captions the photo, “This is the one thing I am most worried about before getting on a plane.”
It is unknown if the person who posted this photo on Reddit is the woman in the photo or not. There was also no additional information about the airline or where they were traveling. Perhaps just a funny photo to get a conversation going and cause some laughs!
Person places bare feet on the headrest in front of them… and there’s photo evidence!
The post has gone viral, earning 31.2 thousand upvotes and one thousand comments. Of course, many are quick to comment on the situation and share their own thoughts. “Lick their feet to establish dominance,” someone hilariously writes. Another person says, “Nah bruh I’m calling up animal control this ain’t a human.” Many others joked that the woman should tickle or sneeze on the feet. Others said they would stand up for themselves and ask the person to move their feet. Or, many would ask a flight attendant to do so for them.
One person shares a personal anecdote of their own. “I was on a 6 hour, overnight flight a couple months ago, someone up ahead was doing that. It was shut down by a flight attendant pretty quickly. I was sitting in the last row, so I also got to listen to all the flight attendants talking about how rude and gross that was.”
Not the only occurrence
This is not the only foot-related incident to happen recently. New York Times best-selling crime novelist Alafair Burke posts an experience back in July. He posts a video of a man leaning back in his seat and resting both bare feet on the entertainment system in front of him. He was also using his toes to use the touch-screen.

“This is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen on Twitter,” someone writes in response to the above video. Another says, “People leave the house and lose their damn minds.” Guess so!
