How Flight Attendants Are Set Up to Fail - The Atlantic

The public wants to blame us, shame us, and treat us like trash. We did not make the rules. We did not design your seats. We did not decide who gets to sit in first class or what you paid for your ticket. We didn’t decide what you get to or didn’t get to eat on a flight. We understand you want a blanket. We don’t overbook- the people waaaaaay above out pay grade do that. Most of us agree and hate that our airlines are overbooking passengers. We are only given a small amount of resources to do our job- a job that is becoming harder by the day. The United incident had NOTHING to do with the flight attendants, but since that incident flight attendants everywhere have been bullied, harassed, filmed without their consent, and treated like criminals.
The flying public needs to grow up. Treating a crewmember bad will NOT help you. Filming a crewmember without their consent can get you fined and sued. Harassing or threatening crew could land you in jail. Is it worth it? Dose it make you feel like more of a man to call us names when you don’t get your upgrade? Think hard about it. We have to deal with 600+ passengers day day sometimes. We would love to give you a blanket, pillow, free meal, and whatever else you’re complaining about. Our Airlines don’t give us those options. Know beforehand what you’re paying for. Read that fine print on your ticket. *Be a knowledgeable traveler and your experience will be much better.*
There is never a reason to harass flight attendants. The stories I’m hearing from my friends are absolutely appalling and many of them are taking time off work. I love my job, but I’m thinking about taking a leave as well. I had a grown man call me a “dumb fucking bitch” in the airport the other day. Why was I called a dumb bitch? The man’s flight was delayed and I just happened to be walking by his gate. That’s it.
We are people who get up and go to work everyday just like you. Unlike you we don’t get to go home at the end of the day. We work 16-18hrs a day and get relatively no sleep. We are permanently jetlagged and hard working people. We are trained to save your life on and off the plane. We do MUCH more than you see every single day. Treat us with respect. We’re just as frustrated with the flying experience as you are. Try to understand that. Remember that your flight can’t take off with out us showing up to work. If you want to be a vulgar human- stay home. Otherwise, we’re here to help you.

Opinion | ‘Julius Caesar’ should go, and all of these, too
This is just the tip of the iceberg.

“Death of a Salesman”: NYC play shows an old man who is no longer very good at his job and has placed too much confidence in his incompetent sons.

“The Lion in Winter”: Same, but the man also has a much younger wife.

“Henry V”: Play erroneously suggests that being rude to foreign leaders can have consequences.

“Doctor Faustus”: NYC play appears to depict man who gets everything he wanted but is so, so unhappy, all the time, and nothing can fill that void within him, and also he employs Satan.
