“Because he wanted to be boss.”
Maybe it was because he thought it reasonable that he should be able to ask a stewardess for a drink, as people always have on planes, and he felt like resisting a change for the worse.
“Hot and steamy like the attendant...”
I think she was coming on to you. Some guys have all the luck!
It’s a good beginning, but that’s as far as it goes. Made my day though.
Thanks for the thread on which I can post my comments about yesterday’s travel USAir our of PHX, on a 1-2 hour nonstop.
I’m one of the first up to use the toilet, and I open the door to a toilet “needing maintenance” (full of paper and feces, so I wouldn’t dare flush is as a courtesy). I presume this sat untended on the ground.
Other complaint is that 10 minutes after they announce that we land in 40 minutes, they say “shut off all electronic devices. I know the rule is technical nonsense, but I can live without my Kindle for 5-10 minutes. But 30 minutes was ridiculous, and it appeared that the crew just wanted to get the cabin cleaned up and take a break before landing.
I read it as the passenger was an arrogant ass. While the first flight attendant should have brought him a soda, he was informed of the proper procedure (using the console in front of him). Rather than follow that procedure, he then bothered two more attendants and started threatening that he was going to file complaints and what-not. Why couldn’t he had just used the console? Because he wanted to be boss.
Without firsthand knowledge of their computer system I must disagree ... I’ve worked with computers since the early 1970’s and I’ve seen plenty of abysmal programming and logic failures ... things that just don’t work when you follow the onscreen directions... I would have called the waitress myself instead of using the computer ... if it is mounted to the seat ahead it is (depending on recline angle) unlikely to be at an angle that makes viewing easy... that and I wouldn’t be able to read it without my glasses anyway...
The correct response is to only fly good airlines like Singapore or JAL.
The flight attendant sounds like a bitchy queen who got up on the wrong side of the bed that morning....never cross a gay diva....
Life imitates South Park yet again?
