Some food for thought

Next time you’re eating on a plane and drop a piece of lettuce or a chip on the tray table, leave it there. That was my view for nearly two hours on Ted this afternoon.

  1. sadly I have seen pigs put their feet up on the table at Starbucks (with shoes, but it makes no difference one way or another). Some people are just gross. Why don’t you publish the photo with the entire pig visible?

  2. LMAO! Tough crowd. The original picture does have her face in it, but I don’t think it’s worth posting. Let this simply act as a public service announcement.

    Besides, this was Ted. C’mon, do you really expect better? šŸ˜€

  3. I would have probably said something to her…that’s definitely worth calling her out about it. Without being a COMPLETE jerk, there are definitely a few things to say that will leave a good impression in her mind (much like her feet on the table did for you), haha.

  4. I’ve even seen these pigs in First on AA. I feel bad when I put my feet (with shoes) on the bulkhead wall to stretch out my hammies.

  5. I beg to differ, and risk getting crucified: For me, it’s fine. You never know who’s feet rested on your Starbucks table before, yet you seat there. Why is it different from putting one’s feet on a coffee table, which is considered acceptable?
    Personally, I prefer bare feet on the table rather than shoes that stepped who-knows-where.
    As long as the person next to her if ok with it, I see no harm.
    A few years ago a young lady was sitting next to me on a long flight, trying to rest her sore feet. When I saw her struggling to get comfy, I suggested that she puts her feet on the table in front of me, so that she could stretch a little.
    She was really greatful, and I didn’t mind at all.
