Staying in the cramped quarters of an airplane can be very frustrating for many people. Passengers can get irritated very quickly when they have to share personal space with total strangers.

After all, you never know what another person’s habits are! And when there are children involved, you have to deal with the screaming and the crying that is often heard on planes.

But one child’s behavior totally baffled a passenger who wasn’t expecting to be an object of interest to the young boy.

The man was sleeping on a flight across Vietnam when he suddenly felt a stinging on one of his legs. The pain woke him up, and he saw the most curious thing in front of him: the tiny hand of a boy in the seat in front of his reaching behind him to pull at his leg hair.

The scene was so odd that the passenger had to take out his camera to record the incident.

The man later reported that apparently, the boy had never seen a hairy leg before. Luckily, it doesn’t seem that he was too angry about the behavior, just very amused by it!

How would you have reacted to a child pulling your hair like this? Has something like this ever happened to you?
