Yep, Someone Left a Bag of Pee on a Plane

Yep, Someone Left a Bag of Pee on a Plane
Jennifer Billock

Sometimes, airplane passengers deserve to be shamed online—particularly when they leave behind disgusting things like a bag of urine hanging from the seatback pocket; the Instagram account @passengershaming aims to call out all the horrible behaviors of people on planes who make other passengers irate.

What’s the worst behavior you’ve ever seen on a flight? For some people, it’s another passenger kicking their seat, or flopping their hair over the in-seat entertainment system. And then there’s the more severe stuff, like shouting or fighting, or what Instagram account @passengershaming recently came across. Someone literally left a bag of urine hanging from a seatback pocket when they got off the plane. They left a slipper behind, too, which makes it even more interesting. Passengershaming shared the photo with the caption “Just your typical leftover bag o’pee and random slipper on a Wednesday.”

Commenters were generally horrified, with one claiming this is one of the reasons they hate people, but at least one looked at it from a logistics point of view, noting, “Sometimes you’re not allowed to use the toilet if there’s heavy turbulence.”

This isn’t the first time urine has made an appearance on flights. A passenger once left a bottle full of pee on the plane, another woman was forced to wet herself on an Air Canada flight, and yet another ended up peeing on the floor of a plane because the bathroom was occupied.

Passengershaming posts often go viral; the account has posted other such gems as someone clipping their toenails inflight, someone laying on the floor underneath several seats, and someone storing a leaky bag of shrimp in the overhead bin.

    I wonder if this might be a shaming of a shaming? Perhaps it was one of those flights where the seat belt sign gets left on the entire time. Eventually, someone who Really Had To Go decides that a handy bag is his only path of relief, and leaves the dangling bag to shame the airline.

    The real question is how does this bag count toward the baggage allowance? Is this a “personal item” or a carry-on?
