5 Most Outrageous Things People Do in Public

Thanks to my two-hour commute to work via public transportation, I'm surrounded by hundreds of strangers on any given day. And based on what I've seen people do in public, I've come to the realization that some people have no shame. Seriously, the people I've encountered have given a new meaning to the term "public indecency."

Nail clipping in the office also makes me cringe! The worse was when I went to ask the 72 year old man in the cube next to mine a question and he was sitting there with his shoes and socks off clipping his toe nails!!!!

Have ya'll never been to a Walmart?!? Because I worked there for a couple years, and seriously, people do ALL of these things on a daily basis at Walmart. And if you want to lose whatever hope you have left  for humanity, go into a Walmart bathroom! So gross...

1.) We used to have an older gentleman in our small, echoing church who would sit there and clip his nails DURING THE SERMON!  Everyone could hear, it was gross, and I can't believe his wife would just sit there and let him do that.


2.) My dad was at a nice restaurant's bar the other day, and this younger woman (about my age, a 20something), whipped out deodorant and applied it sitting there at the bar!  OMG talk about ridiculous! 


Some people just have no sense of decency anymore.

Some people can't help falling asleep. A very close relative has a sleep disorder that causes her to fall asleep whenever she is still. She can't drive a car because of it, and she has to keep moving her hand or foot on the bus. I have an ex with narcolepsy and he has snored right at my dinner table. Oh well. But I don't know anyone who does the rest of those things. Yuck.

I agree with most of the list ew! but some people can not help falling asleep. My mom has narcolepsy I do as well but not as sever as hers. Sometimes you just can't help it.

yea the sleeping thing should not be on the list due to sleep disorders.  however what should take its place is wearing next to nothing (trust me u dont want to attract that attention)

I once worked with a guy who had severe acne.  He would pick at his face, and then eat it.  Compared to that, everything on this list looks weak.

I saw men out in public on two separate occasions (Walmart & at an Indy race) reach down the back side of their shorts and start scratching their rear ends. Neither of them thought twice about it! SICK SICK SICK!!!!
