The Joys of Public Service
A male flight attendant had a passenger complain to him about her overhead luggage before take-off. As the story goes he turned to her, stated, "Have a good flight you F***ing Bitch," and grabbed two bottles of beer. He then proceeded to jump down the escape chute and run out onto the runway.*
He got arrested for creating a disturbance, or endangering airport security, or something.
I sat and laughed. Meg sat and grinned. The rest of my family looked at us like we were idiots.
If you don't think that's funny, then you don't understand and you may want to consider getting a service industry job. At least short term.
Or at least realize you're not special, and actually being nice to anyone serving you will get you farther.**
*Unfortunately I can't find any news accreditation for this. However, all I can think of is to google the "quote."
** We will sit in the back and laugh at you. If you made our co-worker cry you'll probably pay.***
***Let it be noted that I am referring to previous jobs. Not my current one.
