I work in the airlines as an air hostess, air steward or aka trolley dolly. I actually look forward to my job, other than one thing, RUDE PASSENGERS!
I know that the majority of my job is to ‘serve’ you and make your flight as pleasant as possible, so please let me do this, and don’t be such a pain in the arse!
You can call me a trolley dolly all you like but did you know that I can also save your life if necessary? Did you know that the majority of my training is to prevent accidents, deal with accidents and prevent fires (the biggest threat on board?).
I am there, on your flight, as a trained first aider dealing with anything from heart attacks, to strokes, to child birth, allergic reactions, you name it we’ve trained for it.
I am trained in self defence of myself and other passengers, on how to restrain an unruly passenger and hopefully prevent them from being one in the first place!
So, next time you press your buzzer to have a go at me because your meal choice wasn’t available on this flight (read the small print on your menu card), think about who will deal with you should you choke on said meal!!
