Rude and Ungrateful Passengers
Looky here, there are things that as a Flight Attendant I am not responsible for but as a passenger you are completely responsible. These are your personal belongings. Why? You’re an adult! KEEP these things include keeping your travel documents and other important travel possessions with you at all times such as:
electronic device story
Same goes for your electronic devices, again you are personally responsible for your things that you bring on board. We have flight attendants make announcements to remind you to check between the seat back pocket anything that you may have place there, meanwhile only 50% of the passengers on board who listen to the announcement. We don’t say these announcements for our own breath, these are reminders for you to grab your things, double check the monitors inside because your gate information could have changed, or just maybe you’re connecting gate may require you to take some type of shuttle bus, or tram to get to the other side of the airport. You really should listen
These things are very important so you should make sure you keep this with you at all times. Tuck these things away deep in your wallet, satchel or purse. Should you leave these things on the aircraft and the flight attendant is kind enough to catch you to return them to you, an attitude is not needed. Gratitude is best!
I recall a flight I had from Philadelphia to Toronto, Ontario Canada and a passenger who had just boarded the flight realize he had lost his passport. I will always ask you questions like do you have it did you check your pockets, did you check the seat that park in front of you some people are very forgetful but their iPads and phones and as soon as they sit down and forget that they even put those things in there. Meanwhile, the CHICKEN HEAD passenger to the right was saying maybe I should "maybe you can make an announcement to the cabin to see if anyone has found it." Mind you that is a good idea, however I do know how to do my job, and that option I do last after I perform other recovery tactics. I asked her to be quiet, and let me handle the situation. She shut up! After dealing with Miss NOSEY, I asked that male passenger if he had checked between the armrest & the sidewall. He said yes and it wasn’t there, so I asked him to stand up and let me check around the seat. Why don’t you know it, his Canadian passport was between the ARMREST & THE SEAT.
So, I handed it to him he kind of snatched it from my hand and had an attitude. Wait…. what? Excuse me Canadian jackass, not a thank you or are you save my ass? These freaking people are unbelievable!
