The Most Unsanitary Thing To Do At The Bozeman Airport
We all put up with a lot when flying, but this is something that grosses me out.
I have to be honest, for the past month and a half, I have been a frequent visitor to the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. With all those visits come some unique perspectives regarding airport etiquette when traveling—I have to say, we need to be better.
When flying, most folks have two things on their minds: making their flight and being comfortable. I am a masochist and love booking early flights for some reason, so most of the time I will adorn a hoodie with sweats or shorts. I'm all about comfort, and won't judge your airport fashion choices. However, there is one clothing choice I saw recently that got me thinking, and I have to share it.
Going through TSA security can seem like a hassle, but it's simple. Taking off your shoes, taking electronics out of your bags, and having no liquids over six ounces sounds reasonable. Here's the thing; when I take off my shoes, I will be wearing socks like most people. Seems logical, right? Nope.
I saw several people going full barefoot through TSA security. I get it, sandals are comfortable, but are you really going to walk barefoot on a rug that probably hasn't been cleaned all week and act like it's your living room? I just worry about what types of germs (or fungi) are possibly being transferred that way.
Sorry, I had to talk about this because I don't think I had ever seen that before, and it made no sense to me. Just wear some comfy sneakers with socks, and you will be happier—and probably safer.
