Flight Attendant Friday

You know if you are a flight attendant if:

1. You can eat a 4 course meal standing at the kitchen counter

2. You search for a button to flush the toilet
3. You look for the "crew line" at the grocery store

4. You can pack for a 2 week trip to Europe in 1 roll aboard

5. All of your pens have different hotel names on them

6. You NEVER unpack

7. You can recognize pilots by the back of their heads-but not their faces

8. You can tell from 70 yards away if a piece of luggage will fit in the overhead bin

9. You care about the local news in a city three states away

10. You can tie a neck scarf 36 different ways

11. You know at least 25 uses for air sickness bags-none of which pertain to vomit
12. You understand and actually use the 24-hour clock

13. You own 2 sets of uniforms: fat and thin

14. You don't think in "months"-you think in "bid packs"

15. You always point with two fingers

16. You get a little too excited by certain types of ice

17. You stand at the front door and politely say "Buh, bye, thanks, have a nice day" when someone leaves your home

18. You can make a sentence using all the following phrases: "At this time," "For your safety," "Feel free," and "As a reminder"

19. You know what's on the cover of the current issues of In Touch, Star, and People magazines

20. You stop and inspect every fire extinguisher you pass, just to make sure the "gauge is in the green"

21. Your thighs are covered in bruises from armrests and elbows

22. You wake up and have to look at the hotel stationery to figure out where you are

23. You refer to cities by their airport codes

24. Every time the doorbell rings you look at the ceiling

25. You actually understand every item on this list

And one final thing. Looky who was on my flight a few months ago. He was so nice! Have I told you guys lately how much......I LOVE MY JOB!!!

Becky, George Lopez and Cindy (Lou)

Until next week........stay safe in your travels!

This is a great list Becky. I really enjoy hearing about your job. I think of cities in their codes also from years of making airlines reservations, some make sense but others not so much. Hope you had a great weekend!

Picket said...

Hey girl! Loved that you live an exciting life and meeting celebs to boot!!!! It is just so good to have a computer to be able to visit again! I don't have alot of time to stay on one & I am like you when it is Spring and Summer I have to be outdoors...but I use my computer for everything...e-mails...visiting and bill paying...I caught myself walking in the study and sitting down to an empty desk! lol Thanks so much for checking on me my friend...have a great evening!

MiMi said...

I loved this! And I agree with a couple of others that commented -- we need some scarf tying pointers!

Have a great week, my friend!
