“If you do not study hard, next time you would be like these air stewardesses serving other people.”
Being a flight attendant has its ups and downs and although it’s usually perceived as being an easy or glamorous job, having an office in the sky offers a unique and stressful working environment. Flight attendants are responsible for 300-plus lives, and it sure isn’t an easy job to do so.
However, one passenger on a plane belittled the job of a stewardess—but the stewardess who heard the mom’s words replied with a few words that silenced the embarrassed woman.
A mother pointed to the air stewardess and told her daughter who is probably around 6 or 7 years old: “If you do not study hard, next time you would be like these air stewardesses serving other people.”
An air stewardess who heard these words did not get angry at all but she replied in a gentle and polite tone: “That’s right, if you do not study hard, you will not even get a job as an air stewardess.”
Serving people and making sure they are well taken care of under your watch doesn’t mean you are below them. Always take note that becoming an air stewardess isn’t easy as many people think.
