More than peanuts...

Most people in the world think all flight attendants do is pass out peanuts...

THIS IS NOT TRUE!!! Okay, okay, we pass out peanuts (honey roasted, yum yum!).
But we also offer "complimentary coffee, hot tea, bottled water by the glass, a variety of juices and sodas, and for $5.oo each, we have beer, wine, and cocktails."

In addition to our snacktime at 30,000 feet, flight attendants ARE there primarily for your safety (which you already know, IF you pay attention to the demo. If you don't, please do me a flava and keep your seatbelts fastened at all times, and if a margarine dish looking thing attached to a plasticky bag falls from the ceiling, it would be wise to place it over your nose and mouth).

But what I'm talkin' about is the rest of the story.

Our mornings begin just as yours do, (shower, Starbucks, morning paper). But once we get to work, every day is a different adventure. Each day, I encounter hundreds and hundreds of different people. Each with unique personalities, backgrounds, problems, experiences. Add the flight crew, the weather conditions, the time of day, and the aircraft itself, and there is no such thing as a normal workday.

And so, in this bloggythingy, I would like to share my days with you. The good, the bad, the ugly. The smiles, the tears, the puke and much more.

Enjoy, and welcome aboard.
