How to annoy an FA

Not trying to be a pain in the ass...but saw this and thought that it would be appropriate:

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ~ WOW, what a ride~!!!

You know what annoys me? People who whine about their jobs. If you voluntarily take a job where you are going to be dealing with a few thousand different human beings each and every day, you can pretty well expect their behavior will follow a bell curve.

I was especially put off by the complaint about people who can't get their own bags in the overhead. I'm always happy to help them out as nine times out of ten, it seems to me it's a mother traveling alone or an elderly person. I would bet that most FAs are happy to help out, too. I suppose FA attitudes follow their own bell curve.

I agree,

I've certainly come across some bell ends in my time!
