-yesterday i had to settle an argument between two men because one guy was "taking up all the armrest." are you kidding??? cmon', lets act like adults here. and yes, i had to seperate them.
-the seatback pocket is NOT YOUR PERSONAL TRASH CAN. you can put stuff in there. thats fine. thats what its for. but for cryin out loud don't leave it. be responsible.
-after takeoff, the seatbelt sign is on...just stay seated until its off. i know ya gotta go to the bathroom, but unless your 'bout to leak all over yourself (i'm not cleanin' it up) just hang tight. its the rulz. i don't make'm. but YOU can be personally fined for breaking them. like $1,000 bucks. i'm not kidding. :) FAA is pretty ruthless.
-ok listen, theres a 2 bag limit...one goes up above, one below. DON'T walk on the plane with 2 HUGE carryons. then u get mad when theres no room and we have to check them. or you take up all the space and we have to check someone elses. then the flights delayed. boeing makes the planes, they put all the space they can up there. and we all have to share...ok?? oh, and please don't try to squeeze your rollerbag under the seat and hope we don't see it. it doesn't fit. and we will see it. oh, and you can get fined for that, too.
-during the announcements at the beginning, don't wear ur earphones. i dont care if you pay attention, but i dont' feel like havin' to tell you that you can't have ur ipod on, then you smart off and say "uhh, its not on." well if you have ur headphones on, then ur askin' to be harrassed.
-don't order 2 drinks at once. (yesterday i had 3 guys order 5 jack daniels', and 2 waters.) you can get more later. we are more than happy to do that. just lemme get everyone else's first.
-Control your kids. i know its hard sometimes, but i've just seen too many parents let their kids run wild while parents do nothing. they ask us...yes. they ask US, to tell their kids to put their seatbelts on.
-last of all, just listen to our announcements. we pretty much tell ya everything you need to know. except for "what lake that is over there." (a guy told me if anyone asks me, then just tell them my middle name. for instance, "oh, thats Lee lake!!!" haha. people never know the difference, its actually quite amusing.
These are just a few occurrences that i see DAILY. I don't mean to complain, i just wanna help everyone out. i just laugh everytime. i look at this list and i think its common curtosy. its just amazing what people do. I love all my passengers and i'll always have a smile on my face, but...are you kidding????
and just a heads up, if you commit one of these crimes and we correct you, and we are accidentily rude (i've done it a couple ..er...few...times) we really don't mean to be, its just hard to have to nag EVERYONE about this stuff all the time and not get frustrated and come off as rude.
