    You see, if I ever brought Hershey Kisses on a plane, I would refuse to surrender them for anything. I will DIE before I give you my chocolate :)

    And the article was all common sense

    "7) Rolling Your Eyes When I Can`t Help You Hoist Your Carry-On Into the Overhead Bin: I understand that you might need a hand getting your luggage into the overhead. I can`t risk hurting myself for you or your bag -- I don`t want to get an OJI (on the job injury) and be out of work. I`m genuinely sorry I have to say no. I really am ... until you roll your eyes. Then, you`ve lost all sympathy"

    The air stewardesses have always helped me push my luggage into the bin... maybe it`s because I`m 5` and have one hand.

    Or maybe she`s just a bitch.

    *AHEM* Probably the former.

    the comments are funny, most of them are like "candy?! you want me to give you candy? why don`t you take your drink-cart and shove it up your a$$!". The customer service industry is not a forgiving business.

    I can agree with opiebreath. How many times can an flight attendant complain of #7 before it`s considered squeamish.

    Hey, shut the drat up and do the fing job you`re paid a fortune to do! Fair go, its your JOB to do all those things. I`ve just spent 18 hours sitting in a hard plastic seat where I couldn`t nod off for 2 minutes in case they decided to board the flight I was supposed to board 12 hours ago while my eyes are shut. The luggage racks are there for MY use, not yours, and why the hell should I throw you a smile just cause you had a bad date with Captain Aidspusher last night? Did you even NOTICE me when you bought a pack of cigarettes from me yesterday at the store?

    I know that every job has it`s pooty qualities.
    But the bitch gets to travel, free. So f*ck her. "I don`t want to get a OJI" Wait till some little old woman sues the airline for breaking a f*cking hip. God damn, I hate airplanes.

    5.) People have to instinctively know you`re coming in order to take the headphones off in advance. She probably catches them by surprise, hence the "What?".
    4.)Every job has this, guarenteed.
    3.)People are aggitated when hungry.
    2.)Oh sorry, I just saw you standing there refusing to help someone with hoisting their bag up to a rack, thought you were just wasting time.
    1.)You stop bitching, I`ll stop poking.
    Bonus Tip: Im not brining you bon-bons. Do your job and stop worrying about chocolate.
    Maybe if you did this whole "fitting down the aisle" thing wouldn`t be a problem, would it?

    In order to have a perfect day as a stewardess you would have:

    10.) Every passanger smile when they see you coming.
    9.) People to go out of their way to convience you so that you don`t have to check a carry on.
    8.) See above, replace "check a carry on" with "politely tell someone to move".
    7.)See opie`s post, she got this one the best.
    6.)Even at Obama`s inaugriation people were talking, sometimes, though you don`t like to realize, people just don`t care about what you have to say. Deal with it.

    Wait... I was just thinking. If I was an air plane attendant person, and someone gave me candy I would be a little weirded out by it.
    1- 9/11 and terrorists and stuff.
    2- People are nice in general. It would come as a suprise and still weird me out.

    Furthermore about #7 it is just not good business etiquette to just say "no" when presented with a problem. Instead try to find someone who is willing to help. Overall, the plane is on a schedule, and no one wants a situation where someone is having such difficulty that it`s almost time for the plane to taxi. By which time the safety briefing begins and the captain might have get involved.

    I think her #7 was to people who seem to think their bag needs to weigh as much as them. If you need that much check it. *this is not directed to anyone with a disability I have one myself* but if its too heavy for you to lift why did you pack so much? I know people will get ticked with my comment but it is common sense. Yes customer service is not the best job. I work in it and it can have its days. Sometimes one person being nice will help you be a little bit nicer as well.

    I was at the airport once trying to check this huge suitcase which weighed like... 70 pounds. I was flying by myself so I couldn`t bring multiple bags, and I was moving so I wanted to bring as much with me so I didn`t have to pay to ship a lot of stuff that could easily go in my ginormous suitcase. But since I only weigh 100 pounds I had trouble lifting it up onto the scale and no one would help me do it. Instead the woman who was checking my bag stared at me and said "....so are you ever going to get it on the scale?" Ugh.

    I was also once going through security and had a cd case with me, and a guy who worked there just started casually thumbing through it looking at my CDs checking out my taste in music (I was waiting for the woman who was randomly checking my bag to come back). I was like wtf???

    I`ve always been pleasant to crew members and employees especially in retail. If you haven`t had a retail job or something similar to it, don`t open your mouth or type another word. You don`t know what it`s like.

    Now I have to remember to buy some candy the next time I fly.

    "All I`m getting from this is: "I hate my job""

    from working with customers myself, its not "i hate my job" but she hates those FEW annoying customers. 95% of customers are actually quite nice, but you always get the 1 or 2 a day that are just complete arseholes.

    What a whiny bitch. If you don`t like the job lady just shut-up and quit for Christ sake.

    I`ll give her slack for the dirty diaper issue, but the rest of the list is just a list of personal complaints that could be fixed if her godam airline would provide it`s passengers with something more than a frickin` square foot of uncomfortable area in a flying tin can and a fee for everything under the Sun.

    Go buy your own frickin` candy, your airline just charged me 100 clams to check my baggage. I only give handouts to those who don`t have jobs.

    Most of these are pretty petty...but I agree with #6: It doesn`t matter if you`ve sat at the exit 200 times before, it doesn`t matter if you`re the queen of england..you HAVE to be briefed on the exit EVERY time you sit there (as per Transport Canada and the NTSB laws). I can`t STAND it when people try to shut me up, they cut me off, they ignore me..if I didn`t give you that briefing, my job is on the line. So just do us a favour and humour us..pay attention for the 30 seconds it takes to brief you. Besides..I really enjoy my job (unlike the flight attendant that made that list)..I`d rather not lose it.

    That was pretty interesting. I can feel her annoyance, some of those points are quite noticeable even for a passenger.

    Anyhoo, I read some other posts on that page, and I have a Q for the (as iab calls them) females out there: are fat guys hot? If yes, then I am so screwed. I hope it`s not like slender girls, which most guys will prefer, even though "slender" to us is a wider spectrum than for most girls...

    I hope I never have to work as a flight attendant... mostly for the same reason that I`ll never be a teacher. Next time I fly, I`m grabbing some candy for the attendants and giving away some smiles, too.

    "Anyhoo, I read some other posts on that page, and I have a Q for the (as iab calls them) females out there: are fat guys hot? If yes, then I am so screwed. I hope it`s not like slender girls, which most guys will prefer, even though "slender" to us is a wider spectrum than for most girls..."

    Personally, I don`t really like super-skinny guys (seeing ribs is gross), but I don`t like them to be super-big and bulgy, either. Just enough fat and muscle to make him a big teddy bear (and give him a little definition), without being disgusting.
