10 Things Flight Attendant Won’t Tell You

Treat yourself nice

There are certain things the Flight Attendant won’t tell you but expects you to know.

Do well to avoid certain embarassing situations by noting the common things flight attendants complain most about:

  1. “An all-too-common scenario: I hand you a cup of coffee and say, ‘Cream and sugar?’ You say, ‘What?’ I say, ‘Cream and sugar?’ You say, ‘What?’ Come on, people. What do you think we’re going to ask after we’ve handed you coffee? Your favorite color?”
  2. “If you’re traveling overseas, do yourself a favor and bring a pen. You need one to fill out the immigration forms. I carry some, but I can’t carry 200.”
  3. “If you have a baby, bring diapers. If you’re diabetic, bring syringes. If you have high blood pressure, don’t forget your medication. That way, I’m not trying to make a diaper out of a pillowcase or asking over the intercom if someone has a spare inhaler.”
  4. “Just in case you hadn’t noticed, there are other people on the airplane besides you. So don’t clip your toenails or snore with wild abandon”
  5. “Do you really have to go to the bathroom right now, while we’re wrestling a 250-pound food cart down the aisle? You can’t wait 90 seconds for us to pass?”
  6. “No, it’s not OK to come back into the galley to stretch and bend over with your rear end in my face while I’m in my jump seat during my only break, trying to eat a meal.”
  7. “Yes, passengers are incredibly rude, but stealing a beer, cursing out passengers, and jumping out of a plane the way Steven Slater did is not the way to handle it”
  8. “Passengers are always coming up to me and tattling on each other. ‘Can you tell him to put his seat up?’ ‘She won’t share the armrest.’ What am I, a preschool teacher?”
  9. “The lavatory door is not rocket science. Just push.”
  10. “Want to start off on the wrong foot with me? Put your carry-on in a full overhead bin, leave it sticking out six inches, then take your seat at the window and wait for someone else (me!) to come along and solve the physics problem you just created.”
