Walls are divisive.

I think the issue here is that people treat the airplane/lounge likes its their own living room and give no regard to others.

They all seem to forget this is all public shared transportation.
Find to do what you want in your own home, but not around others.

I think my worst was hearing the sounds of a nail clipper in action on a long flight once, I did not get up to take a look.

I worked for about six months as a contract manager, looking after the cleaning contract (back in the day it was ASIG, before OCS and the current provider). Part of my job involved inspecting aircrafts, before and after cleaning. It was only six months before I moved on, but boy wasn't it an eye opener.

I've seen blankets used as cleaning towels for toddlers, emergency exit areas soaked in urine, hand basins used as latrines (very popular on Indian routes), petty vandalism (people perforating the IFE touchscreens with ballpoint pens, punching holes through window blinds, graffiti on the First class seat shells), chewing gums sticked into the seats, especially on the leather armrests of the new First, duvets flushed down the toilet, barf bag emptied into the seat pockets, nappies stuffed in the toilets or under seats... My absolute worse was a string of cases when an insulin syringe had been left, without the cap, in a seat pocket, pointing up. It happened 3 times within months, always in Traveller Plus, always on the same route. We tried to identify the scumbag that was doing it, because it was clear that it was being done on purpose, but unfortunately we didn't catch him, or her. Two poor cleaning ladies had to be taken to hospital to be checked for HIV and other problems.

It really was an eye opener on how disgusting people can be.

What a shocker! Didn't realise how disgusting people are! The syringe person needs to be hung, drawn and quartered!

If you don't have instagram just google it, you will still be able to view the images.
Oh dear god, some of those are disgusting, particularly the 2017 shaming video. The foot coming out from the the seat behind is just plain creepy!

But exposure to a little dirt is going to train your immune system. It is good for you.

He was still asleep. I threw them in Her Nextdoors recycle bin which was awaiting collection, making a mental note to buy her another bottle of Cognac in case the Council kicked off at her.

He never found out what became of them and he never asked because they didn't exist.

Never mind the smell, think of people going barefoot or even socked foot into the lavs. Not everyone aims to please. Enough said.
From what I've seen, you loooooove judging others, and making something of a thing of yourself on here, but then you threw some shoes in someone else's bin? And that is better than someone just taking their shoes off?
