The passengers guide to proper airplane etiquette

Last October while traveling to New Zealand from Los Angeles I had an interesting run in with a fellow passenger on my flight who was, lets just say, less than becoming… Which inspired me to gather some information from fellow travelers and friends, about their experiences with the less than becoming airplane neighbor. I’ve been putting it off for awhile now, then low and behold my late night comedian crush Jimmy Kimmel releases a mini skit re-enacting many of these moments we all agree are the absolute worst, taken from a poll Expedia created on “the most annoying types of airline passengers” (See video below article) Without going into further detail about the video, I have listed my findings on what proper airplane etiquette is to being a good neighbor during your flight.

Ladies guide to proper bathroom etiquette

Have you noticed at nightclubs, restaurants; really anywhere with bathrooms how much messier the women’s restroom is than the men’s? (Yes I’ve stuck my head into many men’s bathrooms, and snuck into a few to use if the ladies bathroom at the club has a 15 min line up. Here are a few things that I think could be confronted and changed, small things everyone can do while using a public restroom to make it a pleasant experience for everyone having their “alone time” and things that we can all do to help make sure the next lady in there doesn’t want to gag…. From the moment you enter: DO NOT enter with anything along the lines of “It stinks in here, what’s that smell, EW” – Duh, it stinks, it’s the bathroom, where I ran to because last nights curry dinner didn’t …
