Yea so my trip to Panama today was rather interesting as my OCD was put to an all time test. For some reason, I didn’t get upgraded. No big deal as I had 8C bulkhead with plenty of leg room on my AA flight from MIA to PTY.

About 15 minutes after takeoff, I felt something gently brush my left arm. I was caught off guard because the middle seat was empty, separating myself from the woman seated by the window. As my eyes peeled over and revealed two bare feet pressed against my arm rest, I almost lost my breakfast.

Foot

 

No matter how much I tried to escape the situation with my ipad, it was front and present for the entire 3 hour flight. The foot groping went on and on and on…. At least my arm is officially in the mile high club.

Have you all ever encountered a situation like this?

Should I have said something?

  1. You should have squeezed a bottle of Purel on her feet. If she were to complain you could say since she was rubbing her feet in your arm you wanted to make sure it was germ free. You know these days, right? 🙂 Ebola is on the air!!!!

  2. Gene
    I’m not a real confrontational person when in a confined space like this. I will admit that if the feet had smelled, like you have on many flights, I would have said something. Luckily it’s Miami to Panama and almost all women have open toe shows which prevents the stank.

  3. Was she good looking? Maybe by rubbing her feet on your arm she had second intentions. LOL!!!!!!! Just kidding!!!! This is an awful situation.

    If that was her intention then I have some advice to significantly increase her percentages….Like not starting with the feet.

  5. You said they didn’t smell, and the pic showed them not touching you. In that case, I’d ignore it. Not like you were needing that seat space. However, if she did touch me more than once in passing, I’d say something. I’d start with actively grabbing them and moving them. If that didn’t work, I’d awaken her and ask her to move. If that didn’t work, I’d hit the call button and let the flight attendant earn his/her “big bucks”.

  6. I would have def said something…..you do not put your BARE feet on the chair next to a stranger.. wtf…

    1. No bare feet, you wear sandals an you take them off you have to put on socks…
    2.. you do not put on feet on the chair beside someone you do not know….

    people r animals these days.
