I hope this spawns more shaming...Restaurant Shaming...Hotel Shaming.. Department Store Shaming....will "customer shaming" make people stop acting like rude, entitled pigs? Probably not. But we can all have a good laugh at their ridiculousness!
From Business Insider: We all know that space is cramped on airplanes, but that doesn't mean that it's acceptable to put your feet on someone else's headrest, sprawl across a row of seats when they're already occupied, or walk around the cabin barefoot.
PassengerShaming.com is a website that publicly calls out the rudest, grossest airline passenger behavior by posting photos of these offending passengers on Instagram and Facebook.
The site posts "photos of a**holes taken by anonymous flight attendants & passengers from all over the world." These images capture behavior that is barely acceptable in your own home — let alone in a public airplane. Below are some of the more egregious offenders (via Yahoo Travel).
It's never acceptable to take your shirt off on a plane.
A few weeks ago I read a hell story that mentioned a guy feeling up display mannequins and it reminded me of a truly disturbing story.
One night I pulled over a car for speeding. While walking up to the car I noticed that it had real dark window tint so I couldn't see inside it.
When I made it to the driver, I asked if he could put the back windows down (we do this for our safety to make sure no one is hiding etc.).
He did without any problem and a quick glance assured me no one was back there. I get his license and as I'm walking back to my car, I look in the back of the car again to see a head staring up at me from a box.
Now we are trained to stay calm under most situations.
So the outer me just stopped walking and stared while the little inner me was screaming like a frightened school girl.
The head was from a child mannequin and in a bigger box beside it was the rest of the body.
Of course, my question to the guy was "Sir, why do you have pieces of a child in your backseat."
Apparently he had bought it off Craig's list and was returning from having picked it up. Yep, nothing weird about that at all.
"Ok, do you work for a store or something and going to use it as a display?"
Come on, I wouldn't be sharing this story had he said yes.
So a run of his name says that he's a registered sex offender.
Legally he wasn't breaking any laws but his probation officer thought differently. Apparently it's suspicious to own a child mannequin if you touch kids. Who knew.
Anyway in the end he got what he deserved. Till this day however that face looking at me through the flaps of the box still disturbs me.
Coca-Cola (CCE) is reviving Surge, back by popular demand after a 12-year hiatus, according to a company release.
The citrus-flavored sparkling drink is exclusively available though online retailer Amazon.com (AMZN), in 12-packs of 16-oz. cans. The first batch of Surge sold out within hours on Amazon Monday but according to the brand's Twitter handle, there will be more soon.
The re-launch marks many firsts for Coke: this will be the first time the company distributes solely using e-commerce. It will also be the first time Coke forgoes traditional advertising strategies (such as TV) and relies only on social and digital media.
"If expectations are met, this may be only the first of a variety of efforts we explore to launch niche products through e-commerce relationships," said Wendy Clark, president of Coca-Cola North America's strategic marketing.
The beverage had a short four-year run before it was discontinued in the early 2000s. But lobbying from brand-loyalists in recent years convinced Coke to restore Surge, the first discontinued Coke product to make a comeback.
