It's not only that it shakes the row of seats but I don't want some dirty pair of trainers lolling over my left shoulder.
It seems to be happening more and more often. Yet other people seem to put up with it without saying a word.
This reminds me of my Captain Fantastic screening during the Summer.
I was seated on the very left near the stairs and throughout the movie there was a stench, very much akin to that of a dead animal.
I clutched my nostrils for what felt like all of eternity.
When the screening finally concluded and the lights came on, I looked over to my left and discovered the culprit:
a guy who'd been sitting in his flip-flops, with the his feet just mere inches away from my face.

Hygiene, people! It's important!!
Oh yuck. With only being short, I'm often sitting in line with people's feet in the row behind. Not sure I could cope with dead animal stench for a couple of hours. I was almost sick on the bus recently when one guy sat behind me that smelt like he needed to be sanitised thoroughly.

Yep, amazing how mothers think small child should be allowed to put their shoes all over seats or even people. Cos we all know that small children's shoes are magical and never have crap on the soles!

Personally, I think kids' shoes are more likely to have shit on them, because they don't know better.

The other thing that's disgusting is people who change babies' nappies in public, eg on the bus. You think your kids shit don't smell on a bus?? I remember being on a bus once and a father started changing the kids' nappy and the grandmother went and closed CLOSED CLOSED, not opened, but CLOSED all the windows. This was in summer.

This is probably a bit psychotic, but I often see a person with his/her feet up on the seat opposite them on a train/bus and think - if someone came around with a Samurai sword and chopped them off - they won't do that again!

True but they would take the bus/train out of service whilst they cleaned up the blood.

Thankfully, I haven't come across nappy changing on public transport. I do see some disgusting sights in the disabled loo in the cinema though. Females chucking used sanitary towels on the floor for example! 8O

Buses (particularly the Night-Buses) are very much a vision of what hell must be like.
In fact, if you're one of the picketing members of Southern Rail, consider yourself lucky.
TFL's bus-drivers put up with literal horrors on a daily basis and almost never go on strike.

Reading this article in the newspaper reminded me of this thread.

Maybe the parent should have told the kids not to put their feet on the seats in the first place?

Assaulted? That conjures up images of him beating the brats around the head. Damn parents allowing their kids to do as they want. I'd have supported the man had I been there.
