As a comic on the road I had to fly every week to work the clubs. One time we were still at the gate and I had my carry-on bag on the floor, getting ready to put it away. “That needs to go under the seat,” said the flight attendant. I said okay as I was getting organized with my book, snack, etc., “I mean now!” he screamed at me. Everyone looked up. He scared me actually, and I shoved it under the seat right away, thinking with that attitude, how does he keep his “people” job. I wondered what he’d say when he came by with the drink cart but to my surprise, he apologized! He said he was having a rough day and was out of line. I didn’t expect that but I also wondered if he meant it or he just didn’t want to be reported (which I would never do). I chose to believe he meant it because he seemed sincere, and everyone is entitled to a bad day. Having worked in sales and as a waitress, I know it can be challenging to deal with people all day, especially people in the stressful situation of flying today. I can understand a flight attendant having a meltdown. I’m surprised that he may go to jail and even more surprised that he has an ex-wife!
