We’ve all been in a situation on a plane where we wish we could call someone out on their disruptive behavior. Whether that’s talking loudly on their phone, leaning too far over the armrest, or not exercising proper hygiene, there’s always that one person we want to turn around and scold. Well, this four-year-old wasn’t shy about doing just that. Rodney Small was traveling with his father from Orlando to Houston when he smelled something amiss. Sure enough, the woman behind him had rested her foot on his chair’s armrest.
The boy turned to his father and said, quite audibly, “Some stinky feet behind me,” and then added, “It’s a lady!” Afterward, it appears he turned around to the woman and asked (quite reasonably), “Why do you have your feet behind me?”
The entire exchange was caught on video by Rodney’s father, Darryl, who had been filming with the hope of capturing his son’s reaction to takeoff. What he actually captured was much funnier, and the video has received over 57,000 views on Facebook at the time of publication.
“Sometimes adults hold back with confronting others to keep the peace,” said Rodney’s father, “but as a child, he voiced his concerns and his facial expressions and reaction made it hilarious. The lady quickly moved her foot and apologized to him, but as a parent, I was not offended at all. I found it humorous.”
