If you've ever flown on a plane, then you've undoubtedly encountered some flight attendants. They're the people who are paid to deal with the grumpy, stinky, and rude passengers around you. And to deal with you. But you're never grumpy or rude, right? I hope not!
Anyway, a lot of people assume that flight attendants live a very glamorous lifestyle, flying all over the world and living most of their life "on vacation."
If you're not of those people, you're sorely mistaken. While being a flight attendant certainly has its perks (like free or deeply discounted air travel, for instance), it's also, you know, a job. And as with any job, there are plenty of annoying things that happen and can make someone dread coming into work. There are also all kinds of things going on behind the scenes when you're a flight attendant. Believe it or not, they're not just there to serve you drinks.
