Yes, yes - it's been quite a while by now, but I guess - once a trolley dolley, always a trolley dolley! I sure can relate to (most of) these still, and it put a smile on my face this morning, so I thought I'll share it:
You know you are a flight attendant when..:
You eat a 4-course meal standing at the kitchen counter in 30 secs.
You search for a button to flush the toilet.
You look for the "Crew Line" at the grocery store.
You can pack for a 2 week trip to Europe in 1 roll-aboard.
All of your pens have different hotel names on them.
You NEVER EVER unpack.
You can recognize pilots by the back of their heads- but not by their faces.
You can tell from 50 m away if a piece of luggage will fit in the overhead bin.
You can tie a neck scarf 36 ways.
You know at least 25 uses for air sickness bags - none of which pertain to vomit.
You understand and actually use the 24-hour clock.
You own 2 sets of uniforms: fat and thin
You always point with two fingers.
You get a little too excited by certain types of ice.
You stand at the front door and politely say "Buh-bye", "Thanks", and "Have a nice day" when someone leaves your home.
You stop and inspect every fire extinguisher you pass, just to make sure the "gauge is in green".
Your thighs are covered in bruises from armrests and elbows.
You refer to cities by their airport codes.
You're a Fire Fighter, Baby Sitter, Referee, Chef, Nurse, Security Officer, and a server all in one!!!
Every time the doorbell rings, you look at the ceiling.
