Captain, we've got a nose bleeder!


This is beyond gross and normally I do not like to have gross looking pictures of elderly men bleeding from the nose on my blog - but, I had to make an exception. On my flight to Tulsa today I was positioned across the aisle from this fella. He picked his nose on occasion, blew his nose full force into his hand instead of a paper product, even ate curdled cream cheese in front of me...and I tried to play it cool. I am hear to say that I had to draw the line when blood began GUSHING out of his nose!!! The urge to throw up was my first of many urges in this situation (run, scream, parachute away were among the others). Eventually with the help of his mildly obese wife and our weirder than weird flight attendant, he was able to get it under control and jam a drink napkin up there. Much to my dismay, with blood stained hands, shirt and cheek 5 minutes after this excitement he ate a ham sandwich (hands unwashed) - I would just like to go on record that this was a BAD sighting and I was so pleased that I had a book and an ipod to distract me from the disgustingness across the way!!!!
