Welcome to "Stewardess Rants & Raves" – a blogging vent sessions based on my bizarre life as a flight attendant. Read about how I deal with the general public in one of the most stressful situations – air travel. Please forgive me in advance for my sarcasm.
Today was a particularly feisty crowd, people full of ridiculous requests. I am not sure who these people are. All 3 geniuses in just one day. How’d I get this lucky?
#1. Man who is standing in our flight attendant galley, as we are trying to clean up and put things away, "You guys should have a gym back here so we can do yoga and stretch."
- What a great idea! I am sure all the bankrupt airlines will jump right on that.
#2. Man, who doesn’t look up as we take his drink order. Eyes narrowed on his tablet’s screen, "I’ll take a gin martini."
- Um, how ’bout a mini bottle and ice? Gin martini, does it look like a full service bar?
#3. Another oblivious man says… "How exactly do they train you on turbulence? Like on the airplane or do you study it in a book?"
- I’m just gonna walk away now.
Conclusion: Wow, what dumb protein powder are these men drinking today?
Disclosure: I want to let you in on a little piece of my life, and this is why I am starting this feature. I hope you enjoy my stories… with a grain of salt of course! My travel stories are in no way a reflection on my employer.
