1.0 and I were on a flight from Seattle to Denver last weekend. The flight attendant and her cart were about a row ahead of ours when some big unexpected turbulence began. The captain turned on the seatbelt sign and asked the flight attendants to take their seats. Do you agree that you always feel a little more scared when they say that? Anyway, the flight attendant locked the cart and took a seat, there happened to be an empty aisle seat right next to her cart.
Couple things so far: have you EVER seen a flight attendant sit in a passenger seat like that? Also, she locked and kept the cart in the aisle. I’m thinking that’s just not a good idea during turbulence. But ok.
Then the person who’s empty seat that was came back from the bathroom, a young woman and her 6 month old baby. I’m pretty sure she was a little nervous to be in the bathroom with her baby during that jolt but to come back and see you can’t get to your seat because the cart and flight attendant are occupying it probably didn’t make her feel any better. The cart truly was before the horse’s ass in this case. The flight attendant shot up and said, “The captain told me to take a seat, so I sat.”
Actually, the captain told you to take your seat, not a seat, but semantics.
So she got up, gave the woman her seat, locked the cart and then was gone. I was pissed. Why would she walk all the way back to her seat and leave a heavy cart with coffee and drinks right in the aisle during turbulence. Then the passenger next to me tapped my shoulder and said, “Just so you know, the flight attendant is sitting on the floor in the aisle next to the cart.” UM…..
Both T.H. and one of my best friends asked me if I took a picture…FFFFFFUUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!
