Builder's bum tops the list of things that travelers find most offensive
Poll: Builder's bum, not cleavage, is biggest annoyance to air passengers
An American woman was asked not to board a Southwest Airlines flight from Las Vegas to New York last month because she was revealing too much cleavage. But a poll by travel search site Skyscanner reveals that the biggest annoyance to passengers is cleavage of a different sort: "builder's bum".
Skyscanner says exposure of the cleft between a man's buttocks due to ill-fitting trousers and careless bending over tops the list of things that travelers find most offensive (28 per cent) in an international survey of 2700 people.
Despite Southwest's cleavage incident, the Skyscanner survey reveals that women with low-cut tops cause little offence.
The top 10 things on the offensive list are:
1. Men revealing "builder's bum" (28 per cent).
2. Sweat patches on clothes (22 per cent).
3. Midriff/beer belly on show (18 per cent).
4. Offensive logos on T-shirts (12 per cent).
5. White socks and sandals (9 per cent).
6. Women with low-cut tops displaying cleavage (4 per cent).
7. Men with hairy chests on show (2 per cent).
8. Noisy jewellery (2 per cent).
9. Football shirts (1 per cent).
10. Thongs (0.5 per cent).
Other (1.5 per cent).
