Ben Gay Brouhaha

in Odor Stories

I was recently on a flight from Denver, Co to Phoenix, AZ. Right after we were seated, a woman next to me started rubbing Ben-Gay on her husband’s neck and back, not just a little, but tons of the stuff. My eyes started watering and my throat started burning from smelling it! I asked a flight attendant if there were any seats that I could move to and thankfully there was one seat available way in the back of the plane. I moved but I felt sorry for the rest of the passengers next to them. Thankfully, it wasn’t that long of a flight but I just can’t understand how rude and thoughtless people can be to do these things on planes! I think he could have taken an Advil and waited an hour or two for his rubdown.

That's one I've never seen… there are a number of remedies that are more odorless (aspercream, for example). A flight attendant should have told them not to do that…
