Many people in my life love to travel. Some of them go to incredible places, and are far more adventurous than I. One of these friends is headed to Iceland next year. While we were discussing his upcoming trip (of which I am super jealous) he told me a story that happened on another of his international jaunts.
He felt lucky that his upgrade had cleared, and enjoyed his meal and watched several movies from his comfortable chair. After a while he decided to rest for a bit. He woke up and, still a bit groggy, headed to the lav. It wasn’t until he was in there that he realized he hadn’t put his shoes on, and was in there in socks. Everything seemed to be fine, but then the plane started turning and he saw liquid rolling across the floor. He quickly realized what was happening and tried to get out of the way, but it was too late. The flight attendant felt very sorry for him and found him a new pair of socks to wear. Even as I’m typing this story, it gives me the shudders to think about what was on that floor. So freaking gross!!
Apparently it doesn’t matter what cabin you’re sitting in—bathroom floors are still gross. So please, please, please wear slippers in the lav. The best kind are ones with an impermeable, rubber bottom (like these) so that nothing soaks into your shoe. Honestly, it’s so gross I can hardly think about it. Wear slippers!!
Readers, do you wear slippers on international flights?
