What–other than languishing in a supreme state of wretchedness–would move a passenger to take the time to write a condescending, bitter, angry, handwritten note to a flight attendant?
Angry Passenger Writes Horrific Note To Flight Attendant
A passenger was asked to pull her mask over her nose. She responded by writing the note below to a flight attendant on an air sickness back labeled “Waste.”
You mean sh*t in life.
You are nothing but a glorified MAID who needs to jump down off her high horse and learn how to speak to ppl. Nobody cares about your stupid seat policies or your nose issues. We pay your salary and your attitude is unnecessary.
The very fact that we have to listen & kow tow to a nobody who does sh*t except collect our trash and serve crappy food makes me absolutely ill. You are a mask nazi and a 4 eyed c*nt, and if it wasn’t for this job, you would be cleaning motel rooms for $2 tips and meth.
I made sure to write this on a bag labeled as to what I think your life actually is… A WASTE.
A person who hates your guts
Let’s just assume the flight attendant was rude, as the note implies. Doesn’t matter. Doesn’t change the analysis one bit. To speak to a fellow human being like this is to show a shocking disregard for basic decency.
Why even share this? Because we need to grapple with the reality we find ourselves in and use disgusting events like this as a lesson to consciously try harder to be more civil, kind, and empathetic to others.
According to View from the Wing, this took place on an American Airlines flight and involved a flight attendant who will be furloughed next month.
What a sad way to end a career.
I feel horrible for the flight attendant. No one deserves to be spoken to like that. Their job is noble (all honest work is noble) and to disparage it is the most cowardly form of bullying.
Perhaps it is easy just to dismiss the passenger as irredeemable and move on. But imagine how miserable you have to be in order to write such a mean-spirited note. My heart breaks for her too. May she find the help she needs before it is too late…
Such a depressing story, but worth sharing. Let’s use this vicious note as a chance to be a little nicer to those around us today.
