One can only begin to imagine what the life of a flight attendant must be like unless you are one. What must it be like for your job to take you from place to place on a daily basis, while the whole time you’re dealing with entire crowds of complete strangers from all walks of life? It must be quite strange indeed!
Recently, we had a chance to check out what flight attendants have to say about their jobs. Namely, we learned about the dumbest things that people say to them on a regular basis. If you’re ready to put your face into your palm, then read on! We don’t know how flight attendants can deal with these things while keeping a straight face!
1. “When do I change my watch, or will it change automatically?”
Is your watch connected to GPS? If not, then you’re definitely going to have to change it yourself…
2. “What country is Hawaii in?”
Do some people really not know that Hawaii is one of the fifty states? If so, that’s just bad…
3. “What does vacant mean?”
Is there someone in the bathroom? No, it’s vacant. So, does that mean that bathroom is out of order? What?
4. “So, do they put you up in a hotel room?”
No. They don’t put us up in a hotel room. We’re just left to our own devices in order to find a park bench to sleep on.
5. “Which one is water, and which one is soda?”
Apparently this question gets asked a lot when the flight attendants are coming down the aisle with refreshments… It’s a real head scratcher!
6. “What are those circles down there?”
Some people just don’t understand the agricultural nature of Middle America. Apparently some flight attendants say that they’re helicopter landing pads…
7. “Did we land yet?”
This one is on the order of people who ask someone else if it’s raining rather than looking out the window and seeing for themselves.
8. “Can you see the lines between states?”
Some people don’t know that Hawaii is a state. Some people think that the lines that form the borders between states on maps really exist. What!?!
9. “Something has been following us the entire flight!”
Apparently some people who sit in the window seat over the wing have a tendency to mistake the lights on the wing for something more sinister…
10. “What does Sex M-F mean?”
On customs declaration forms, some people apparently believe this question means how often they’ve had sex between Monday and Friday… Wow.
