As if air travel weren't already terrible enough, one hellish passenger recently decided to go above and beyond in making it even more uncomfortable for everyone - by taking off his pants for the entirety of his flight.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, comedian and actor Kumail Nanjiani documented his horrifying experience sharing a flight with the pantless man, who insisted on putting his legs up on the wall just to further add to the discomfort of his fellow passengers.
Tweet storm. I was on a plane a couple of days ago. A guy took off his jeans & lounged around in his boxers with his feet up on the wall. pic.twitter.com/CHcsWXnlNB- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
As Kumail explains, he was on a flight a couple days ago when a passenger suddenly took off his pants and sat back down in his boxers, putting his feet up on the wall. And this wasn't just in any seat: It was the first row of the plane, in prime view of everyone entering the plane.
@danharmon Not coach. This right at the front of the plane. So if you walked onto the plane, you would be greeted by this defiant fleshy V- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
After a few hours, a flight attendant allegedly asked the man in question to at least put his feet down - a request he did not take very well.
After 4 hours, a flight attendant finally said "Could you please put your feet down? People are walking through here." 40 second stare down.- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
It didn't take long before his leg was back up, however, and he allegedly continued to act like a child with the plane staff for the rest of the flight.
5 mins go by & he thrusts one foot back up like a fist raised against an unjust sky. pic.twitter.com/HsYGAK6TO8- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
This guy was rude to the staff the entire time. If he didn't get the flight attendant's attention, he would slam his fist on the armrest.- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
And in case you were wondering if his taking his pants off was a spur of the moment decision, Kumail claims the guy couldn't have looked more excited prior boarding to get on the plane and get comfortable.
Before boarding, he stood right at the gate 30 mins early. Wheelchairs went around him. "I can't wait to get in there & get my pants off!"- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
Clearly, this was a man who has no regard for the rules of air travel, and when the flight was landing, he finally put his pants back on - in the aisle, while the seatbelt sign was on.
Descending. No jeans. Right before landing, he stands in the aisle, in defiance of decency & lighted seatbelt signs. He puts on his jeans. pic.twitter.com/s2pa4draEJ- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
And the worst part of the whole saga? HE GOT AWAY WITH IT.
He walks off the plane. No police is waiting for him. No justice. He adjusts his belt, and the monster blends into a crowd.- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
But at least there was one moment of levity in this horror story.
Best part: The movie he chose to watch through his hairy thigh "V"? Florence Foster Jenkins. About a woman who can't READ THE ROOM. The End.- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
... Not that this makes up for his behavior.
P.S. Ppl think it's Virgin. It's not! His USB charger made disco lights the whole time, bathing his thighs in reds, blues, greens! Video. pic.twitter.com/kimqBuni6a- Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) December 28, 2016
