New Portable Electronic Device policy

I hate it.

Here’s why… people have their headphones in during critical flight time and can’t hear anything and aren’t paying attention.

Also, I SEE YOU TEXTING PEOPLE AND YOUR PHONE IS OBVIOUSLY NOT ON AIRPLANE MODE! I would say that 80% of people “forget” to put their device on airplane mode and then swear to me that they thought it was on airplane mode. People like this are going to ruin the new policy for everyone and then they’re (the FAA) going to reverse it and then you can’t play Candy Crush while we taxi to the runway or listen to your ridiculous shitty music during my safety demo.

So yeah, think about that before you want to snap chat every moment of your life in an airplane.

We want to pull our hair out

Just for the record, working the holidays is a tough thing to do. Luckily, I had Thanksgiving off this year, but I worked the week of and the week after.

I had a lady CLIPPING HER NAILS on a flight while sitting next to a man who was cringing (and rightfully so). I had to deal with a mother yelling at me when I was trying to find space in the overhead to accommodate their kayak sized bags…and she demanded the extra leg room seat from a flight attendant heading to work. I had to clean up after a kid who decided to cut up snowflakes on paper and leave the itty bitty pieces EVERYWHERE.

When my flight attendant friend called me sounding out just as stressed as I had, I didn’t feel so bad.

This time of the year sucks for flying. The weather isn’t always cooperative and time sensitive issues cause stress, but please don’t take it out on your flight crew. We’re trying the best we can.

Oh, and due to whateverunderscheduledcompanyissueswehave, I am working 6 days in a row. I’m about to start day 5 tomorrow. Wish me luck. I desperately need it.

Compassion-less

We were in Canada last night and apparently the city we stayed in has a policy… If the temperature is below a certain degree they have to offer free rooms to the homeless. My captain was telling us about it and going on about how “I really hope they clean those beds”… And to “not be surprised” if I see unruly people. Then he concluded with “when I first heard about this all, the republican in me just couldn’t believe it”. Ok dude. Whatever. You don’t have the answers and you are stuck here for the night whether or not you agree. Deal with it. Also, you seem like you have zero compassion for the fact that it’s snowing and icy out… But “those people should really be doing something & they can all get a job”. Yeah, this captain and I won’t get along.

MOST REGIONAL FLIGHT ATTENDANTS AT A FREE BREAKFAST.

If you couple this with the inability to fly internationally, and the hoarding of free food from the breakfast into the lunchbox, then you have a regional flight attendant.

I'm obviously not changing your mind on this one, buddy.

Pilot:
I don't like washing my hands.
Me:
What do you mean?
Pilot:
Well, I'll do it in public restrooms, especially in uniform, so that I won't get judged by others.
Me:
What's wrong with washing your hands?
Pilot:
I don't see the point. I mean, when I shower in the morning I put on clean underwear, and my d*ck is clean too and so are my hands when I'm out of the shower. So when I go to the urinal and shake it off, it seems pointless to wash my hands when everything is already clean.
Me:
Even though your hands go dirty between your shower time and the next time you have to use the bathroom?
Pilot:
I just don't see the point. It's stupid.
