An open letter, penned to an obnoxious airline passenger, may never reach its intended recipient but it is sure beginning to get noticed on various sites around the Internet.
TheBlaze reports the letter, written by blogger Lau Munyee, got posted last week but it took until Monday for people to really start taking notice.
Originally posted to the Singaporean humor site, SGAG, the letter, titled “Dear Passenger 15A,” has since been shared over 5,000 times on Mashable.
“You do not know me but I was seated in front of you during the flight from Singapore to Sydney on April 12th,” Munyee writes in the letter before going on to detail everything the passenger did to offend her on the flight.
“Despite my common economy seat, you offered me a full back massage by repeatedly kicking the back of chair,” she wrote, detailing the first offense.
“To date, I have yet to regain full mobility of the lower half of my body,” Munyee joked. “But since I am single, I suppose I don’t have much use for it anyway.”
The blogger, whose personal blog, IAreMunyee, did not carry the humorous letter, goes on to list other irritants inflicted on her by “Passenger 15A.”
One such action included speaking too loudly to a companion.
“Perhaps she’s hard of hearing?” Munyee mused. “This might strike you as odd but for the first time in my life, I wished I had a hearing impairment too.”
The unnamed passenger also apparently chomped too loudly on his or her snacks.
“Thanks for the loud rustling and chewing ambient sounds!” the blogger said.
But it was the removal of the passenger’s shoes that appeared to have set Munyee over the edge.
“It was so nice of you to take off your shoes and put your feet between my seat and the plane window,” she wrote. “It must have taken considerable effort – it was a small space but you stuck it as close to my face as you possibly could.”
Munyee said her “nose was assaulted by a putrid smell of death and decay.”
“The stench was so strong,” she wrote, “that I turned to check if the old lady seated next to me was still breathing.”
But, she said jokingly, the journey made her a more religious person.
“I have said more prayers in that eight-hour flight than I have in my entire life,” Munyee wrote.
