“Ma’am, don’t touch me. Relax.” These are the words of a man who was accosted by an older woman on his flight while eating a candy bar. The woman and her husband, both of whom were wearing facemasks and face shields, appear to be extremely irritated the man has dropped his mask to eat his food.
In what has now become a daily feature on this blog, the travel freakout video of the day shows a man simply eating a candy bar on this flight. However, the masked (and face-guarded) couple to his right are quite nonplussed and let him know about it. At one point the woman hits the man, perhaps in an attempt to get him to stop recording the incident – maybe to knock the candy bar out of his hand.
Later the older man, yells something unintelligible, but clearly in an angry tone. The man continues eating his candy bar – something completely within his rights and current travel restrictions to do so.
Assault is a no small thing and this woman had no right to touch the other man, but as travel freakouts go, we’ll put this one in the “mild” category.
