Think of the most unusual (or disgusting) scene you've ever seen on a plane flight. Now imagine sharing that with more than 745,000 followers on Instagram? This is how "Passenger Shaming" works, an Instagram account dedicated to spreading the most bizarre moments and bad manners seen on flights - and recorded by passengers or commissioners.

The public shaming site was started by Shawn Kathleen — a mom, former police officer and paramedic who worked as a flight attendant for seven years. She came up with the original concept and started the brand on her own approximately five years ago. It has since been featured in most media outlets across the globe and was named one of the “Best 100 Instagram accounts" by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Scroll down and see just how rude people can get while on a plane for yourself!

I guess the parents might have been asleep. Could have been a 12 hour flight and the kid was trying to keep themselves busy and not wake mum or dad.

I’m not condoning the behavior but this photograph looks altered. What is that blob of blue above the napkins in the floor? It covers the passengers shoe and the white stripe marking the edges of the aisle. Did someone photoshopped (terribly by the way) more trash that in reality was there? Just asking.

Tammy Chapman

Or, it could be the lighting. It looks a bit like a black light. Which would mean that the blue blob could be something really disgusting.

I wish I had have been in this flight. I'm in a wheelchair and so when I need to use the toilet, the air stewards have to use the plane wheelchair to take me from my seat to the toilet, passing this man I would accidentally very loudly go "excuse me sir, the mess you've left on the floor is stopping the wheelchair from getting past and I need to get to the bathroom" so everyone around can hear what a nasty, ignorant and dirty man he is!

This person ought to get married to my great aunt. Soul mates. I wanted to die traveling with her, with all the garbage she threw in the floor. I don't care if she's 78! She's gotta look for a bin, not eat things that create residue or hold on to it until a discard place is found. Never traveling with her again. And that's not even the worse of the situations she caused... her temper tantrums could have put her here (airport and airplane personnel were verbally abused in more than one occasion that I witnessed, in only 3 flights...)
