What Not To Do On Your Thanksgiving Flight Home.

Thanksgiving is finally here, which means you'll be traveling by plane to visit your family. And in a few days, you'll be heading back using the same mode of transportation. This means you can expect long lines at the airport, and some really nasty stuff. We're not just talking about babies screaming their heads off, or people talking too loudly in the middle of the night. We're calling out all those passengers who seem to forget that that a plane isn't a private jet. If you happen to be the one making people uncomfortable, then here are some things you should avoid doing on your Thanksgiving flight home.

#1. Playing footsies with the touchscreen monitor in front of you is just downright nasty.

You have hands and fingers, so use them to play poker or change the channel on those screens in front of you. No one else on the plane wants to smell or look at your stinky, sweaty feet touching that monitor.

#2. When the flight attendant suggested that you go stretch your legs, this isn't what they hand in mind.

Doing yoga in such a confined space might put you in touch with your mind, body, and spirit, but it will also tick people off. Pretty soon you'll be getting in touch with someone's fist for blocking the bathroom.

#3. This isn't what the flight attendant meant when they told everyone to enjoy the show.

Just because you can afford a cabin that lets you sleep like you were in your own bed, it doesn't give you the right to walk around baring it all for the other passengers to see. But if you do it, shave at least.

#4. Love them or hate them, you should never kick someone in the head with your Uggs.

If your seating accommodations are uncomfortable, then boo-hoo princess! Consider buying a first-class ticket next time. But don't make the person in front of you miserable by using their chairs as your foot rest.

#5. Creating your own makeshift hammock for your feet is out of line when you put everyone in danger.

Um, no way! You can MacGyver your way to a more comfortable seating arrangement, but when you attach something to the emergency exit hatch's latch, you're really blowing everyone away.
