We recently shared on this blog the results of a survey of American airline passengers conducted by the travel engine Expedia. We listed the ten top etiquette violators on planes.
* Men who spread their legs wide, into a sort of V-shaped slouch, effectively occupying two, sometimes even three seats. This selfish behavior is called manspreading.
* Women who spread out with shopping bags or extra paraphernalia for their children in large carts.
* Standing passengers who are completely oblivious to slamming their backpacks into the rib cages of other passengers.
* Passengers with the sound turned up so loud on their music that the beat comes out of their headphones.
* People eating foods that smell bad and send unpleasant odors throughout the subway car.
* Door Hogs who refuse to step aside and let others in or out of the car doors.
* Riders who lean on poles, preventing others from holding on.
* Those who thoughtlessly take bicycles on crowded trains.
* Litterbugs who discard trash and leave it behind on subway seats or floors.
* Creepy starers.
Transit officials have stated that being thoughtful of others has become more important as increased numbers are using the New York City subways; more than six million people took advantage of the extensive system on recent days.
