I think the question to everyone now is: Would you visit someone at their home and remove your shoes and socks and place your feet up on their sofa, coffee table, or wall? How would you feel if a guest came to your home and did this?
I believe there's something called common courtesy. If people the world over were to put a little more consideration into their fellow man's feelings I believe the world wouldn't be in half the mess it's in right now.
Perhaps the guy does sufer from DVT, but, he could also explain to the passenger beside him and the f/a of his situation therefore avoiding being branded an offensive slob with no class, etc. I do believe some airlines do provide those lil socks thingies for this very reason.
Socks go on feet, and you blow your nose with a tissue.
Didn't anyone read that in the safety cards?
As for bodily functions - ie: flatus - That one's almost impossible to deter. Some folks have digestive systems that can't process foods as efficiently as others. I'd like to assume that those who have a gaseous condition are just as embarrassed as those exposed to the condition. It's the folks who try to compete with each other
that you have to worry about
