Traveling can be a stressful affair. Stressing at security, frantically rushing to your gate, or taking things out of your luggage because you went over the allowance is not fun – but what happens when a flight attendant makes you so uncomfortable that you have no choice but to complain over Twitter to the airline?

Read on to find out what happened after a woman was addressed using the term “Miss” instead of “Doctor”…

We all love the feeling of going on vacation.

There’s no better feeling than packing your suitcase knowing you’ll soon be jetting off for a well-deserved break.

Let’s be honest, we’re all guilty of downloading those countdown apps so we can check how long we have left to wait.

Whether it’s a domestic flight or long-haul, the majority have opted for air travel at some point.

Rushing to the airport, meticulously weighing your suitcase to ensure that it’s under the limit, and standing in line after line to then be crammed into your seat doesn’t always make for the most desirable of experiences.

Well, one woman was left seething after a flight attendant looked at her ticket and referred to her by a different title that was written on it.

The story sparked some pretty intense responses from social media users after it went viral on Twitter.

The Australian native was waiting for her ticket to be checked but when the flight attendant eventually got to her, all hell broke loose.

When on the ticket, her name was written as “Dr. O’Dwyer.”

She wrote: “Hey Qantas, my name is Dr. O’Dwyer. My ticket says Dr. O’Dwyer. Do not look at my ticket, look at me, look back at my ticket, decide it’s a typo, and call me Miss O’Dwyer. I did not spend 8 years at university to be called Miss.”

“Copping so much flack for this tweet. This was not about my ego. It was about highlighting one of a thousand instances of sexism that women encounter every day. It’s not about the title, it’s about the fact that this wouldn’t have happened if I was a man,” she wrote.

Some people rallied around her and claimed that it could have been a “microaggression” which means that even though it could be a simple “mistake” on the surface, it actually comes from a place of ignorance and stereotypes surrounding her title “Doctor.”

“I grew up with addressing someone by their title (Dr, Prof, Lt, Gen, etc.) as a sign of respect towards the other person. Tbf, if you call me Miss outside of work, I won’t mind – but if it’s written on a document (eg. this case), it’d still be fair to be acknowledged, that’s all.”
