    What is the worst behavior you witnessed while riding a plane?

    Riding jets and planes is commonplace today but some people forget their manners and do some strange and rude things.
    Whats the worse thing you ever saw another passenger do?

    Hmm.. I think the rudest thing I saw was a child who was kicking the passenger's seat ahead of him. The kid was seated next to his mother, who did nothing to control the child's behavior. To make matters worse, I believe the passenger whose seat was being kicked was an elderly gentleman. I understand children aren't easy to control, but that still seemed pretty rude to me.

      That passenger? Nine times out of ten, it's me. I ALWAYS get bratty kids who kick my seat sitting behind me. I invariably have to stand up, and address the parent who is doing nothing to stop the kid.

    Once, we were taxing to the gate, and some drunk frat boy stood up, and opened the overhead while the plane was still moving. A ghetto blaster (remember those?) fell out, and hit me in the head. He laughed.

      Yes, I was hit on the head by some college kids running down the aisle off the plane....

    I had a lovely seat companion and we had a terror mom in front of us.  Besides the noise and commotion of a toddler left to his own devices, the mom changed the little one's diaper and allowed the boy to spray my seat mate over the back of the seat.  Yes, it really happened.

      That is awful! The bathrooms would have been the best place to change him except they are too small on most airliners.

      Yes, agreed, but there was no excuse for allowing that to happen that way!  Have helped with kids on flights, one in particular was traveling with hers right after husband was deployed and they were unsettled--just chatting helped them, but this...

    Just seeing parents let their kids run rampant in the aisles. It gets a little bit ridiculous at times. That's also one of my pet peeves (unsupervised children) because it creates a massive headache and nuisance, and all of the passengers become even more annoyed or disgruntled.

      Children need to move and so do adults. These planes are too cramped for travel; all in the name of bigger profits.
