From the previous post which is about how dirty is our transport, there is a video showing how dirty the seats are. If you do not remember that, here is the video.
If you still believe that the seats are that dirty just because of not sufficient cleaning service is provided, I would defense your view by the following photos.
After seeing these photos above, I would tell you that these are just the tip of the iceberg, which are being captured by others. There are still a lot of people like to put their feet on the seats, or even, you maybe one of them having the same habit.
When you put your feet on the seats, you maybe feel so comfortable and relaxing, or thinking that would look cool. But have you ever think of how many dirt and germs under your shoes? According to the scientific research of University of UTAH Health Care, there is more than 90% of bacteria, including E.coli, found on shoes. Could you imagine how dirty you made the seats become if you keep putting your feet across?
If you still think this behavior is fine and no big deal, have you ever put yourself in other’s shoes? What will you feel if you are the next one to sit on the seat which is being contaminated by others? You may actually sacrifice other’s comfort for your own immediate comfort.
Please think twice and be considerate for the next time you want to rest your foot on the seats. If I have changed your mind about this behavior, or you also got the same view of disagreeing people to put their feet on seats, please take a look at the Facebook Pages below, to support the idea of “Keep your feet off the seats”.
I bet you would not want to be the next one being photoed and post on the Facebook pages.
