This woman wrote an open letter to the smelly airline passenger behind her and it's wonderful

We’ve all felt this rage.

WHAT DO YOU do when the passenger behind you on the plane is the most annoying person you have ever encountered?

Well, you write a scathing open letter to them that goes viral just to show them how irritated you really are.

So, meet Lau Mun Yee from Malaysia, who took a flight from Singapore to Sydney in April

The passenger sitting behind enraged her so much that she felt the need to write him an open letter - which included this image that summed everything up

It started out politely enough, but the rage was soon to come

Dear passenger 15A,
You do not know me but I was seated in front of you during the flight from Singapore to Sydney on April 12th.
What I had initially thought to be a routine flight turned out to be a once in a lifetime experience – and it was all because of you.
I am writing this letter to thank you personally.

She went in to a long list of grievances, starting with an unsolicited back massage

Despite my common economy seat, you offered me a full back massage by repeatedly kicking the back of chair.  To date, I have yet to regain full mobility of the lower half of my body. But since I am single, I suppose I don’t have much use for it anyway.

Her in-flight entertainment was sorted as well

I did not pay for the in-flight entertainment package and I was worried that I might get bored. But my concerns were unnecessary. You were talking so loudly, as if your friend was seated in the cargo hold rather than right next to you.

But her most cutting point was reserved for the passenger’s insanely smelly feet

At this point, I thought, “It can’t get any better than this.” But what I had meant as a rhetorical question, you took as a challenge.
For immediately, my nose was assaulted by a putrid smell of death and decay.
The stench was so strong that I turned to check if the old lady seated next to me was still breathing.
It was so nice of you to take off your shoes and put your feet between my seat and the plane window. It must have taken considerable effort – it was a small space but you stuck it as close to my face as you possibly could.
Your kindness moves me.

She ended the letter perfectly as well

This experience has been so memorable that I am writing this from my therapist’s office. I have also signed up for ten more sessions to talk about it. Insincerely yours, Passenger 14A

We’re on team Passenger 14A here, obviously. We’ve all been there. We salute you, Lao Mun Yee
