Default The Age of Feet

We hear constant complaints about obese, children, reclining, carry-ons,
etc.

How about sitting quietly at the airport, enjoying a meal or snack, or just
waiting for your flight. Then you look down.

Bunions, toe nail fungus, athletes foot, blisters, open sores, flaking dead
skin, you name it, it's there. Have these people ever heard of socks, or
slip on closed shoes??

GIVE US A BREAK !

personally keep my feet well protected due to the chill of the
aircraft. So I'd never fly wearing sandals or anything similar. Anyway,
most of my flying has been on business and most of the passengers around
me tend to be reasonably dressed.

Perhaps its because I've never flown on Southwest Airlines (or similar)
where I see people lined up at the gates in "anything goes" attire?

I sorta sorry I read this thread. Now that it's been brought to my
attention, I'll probably start glancing down from time to time. Arggggggh.

Southwest is usually known as the choice airline of Maw & Paw Kettle.
Anything goes. I fly them occasionly. It's not a bad experience, just
different, if you're used to flying Business or FC. In my line of work, I
have to go from A to B, ASAP, so I fly whatever is available.

Maw and Paw Kettle.... Haven't heard those names for a while. Guess
that dates some of us around here. But aptly said!

Sorta sad, isn't it? and I'm the youngest one in our Service Department. I
sometimes refer to our Dept. as "Just a bunch of old farts running around
the world."
