You Know You're A Flight Attendant When...

Something I found very interesting and funny. Credit to the people who create this list - who ever they are.

Wonder which of these would seem mysterious to people outside the aviation insdustry. Probably the same ones that make flight attendants laugh the most!

  • You never unpack
  • You look to the ceiling when your doorbell chimes
  • You wish you had jet engines mounted in your bedroom so you could fall asleep faster
  • You don't ever write a full city name (and it bugs your non-aviation friends): DTW, MCO, FCO
  • You get excited over certain types of ice
  • You silently curse every Bose headset-wearing dude - ("Yes, the electronic device announcement means you, sir")
  • You know how to look fresh in 5 day old clothes
  • No matter how many times you clean out your suitcase, you still find ancient hidden treasures in there
  • You HATE boarding
  • You LOVE de-planing
  • You have figured out that turbulence is not caused by clouds but by the initial movement of all meal carts
  • You can't believe that people let their babies and toddlers play on the floor of the aircraft cabin - nasty
  • You remember the passengers with great manners
  • You can't remember when UM's actually become bigger than you
  • You love foreigners because they can't adequately complaint in English 
  • You have to turn your head when you see a passenger in stocking feet enter a lavatory
  • You secretly cheer when another flight attendant has to deal with the medical emergency
  • You HATE on board duty free
  • You can't stand the frequent flyer who says "I fly more than you.."
  • You hate running into your passengers at your layover hotel
  • Blankety-blank tray stackers!
  • You hate it when the heavy drinkers start flirting and calling you by name
  • You long for the days when it easy to rig the TV for free movies
  • You want no passengers talking to you while you are non-revving
  • Even when you are not working a flight, you travel in uniform for the liquids, creams and gels exemption
  • If passengers can't find the flush to the toilet, they should stay in there until they do!
  • You wish you had a button to press that would announce "No, I don't have pen"
  • You are excited to find a can of different soda that is not supposed to be on your airline
  • You know a meaning for "crop-dusting" that has nothing to do with agriculture
  • You can spot the cover of a new crossword or sudoku book on an airport news stand rack from 50 feet away
  • You HATE early morning departure
  • You try not to go to the bathroom on the plane but you sure can catch a good nap in there
  • YES, "Remain seated for the duration of our flight" DOES mean YOU
  • Your jumpseat partner knows more about you than your spouse or life partner
  • You have at least 6 items of your own you could add to this list
  • You had a memory for all of these, and understood every one of it
