    Came back to the East Coast for a visit with family and friends - been up in Alaska for about a year now.

    Begin Rant...

    Took four flights to get from Kodiak to RI - this happened during the third flight, Seattle to DC...

    Majority of the flight was uneventful, just like any other flight. Most exciting thing thus far had been the cute Bettie Paige look-alike flight attendant. Eye candy.

    About three hours into the flight, a man gets out of his seat and walks by me to the aft of the plane - presumably to use the head. Just like everyone else, no big deal. 30 seconds later, a women screams out..look back and said man is collapsed in the middle of the aisle. Flight attendants immediately begin to assist him, assess his condition...essentially determine if this man is dying in front of their eyes...

    "Are there any doctors or medical assistants on board, we need help in the rear of the plane"...

    Nurse comes back to check out the guy, still trying to assess if he is in medical distress...

    Random women turns to the flight attendant - "I have a question about my connecting flight, I don't know how to read my ticket, what do I do?" In a totally shitty condescending tone, I might add. As someone could very well dying in front of the both of them.

    Flight attendant "Excuse me Miss, but I have to deal with this man at the moment, I'll be happy to answer your question when I'm done."

    She responds, "Ugh....fine. Whatever."

    I wanted to get out of my fuckign seat and slap this utterly clueless bitch (I'm sorry, can't think of a more appropriate word to use) in the face. Seriously. What the Fukc? This man could be dying right in front of you and all you can think about is YOUR next flight?

    Turned out he was hypoglycemic, and needed some sugary food.

    End Rant.

    OK

    a) did the guy die?
    b) did the passenger get her connecting flight questions answered?

    I have the utmost sympathy for waitresses - anyone in the public service industry. The shit that they deal with on a daily basis is unbelievable.

    That's what I like about my job. No Human Resources. No "Bad Words".

    No hurt feelings reports. If you're butthurt, deal with it.

    That's when I would offer to help her and give her directions to the opposite end of the airport. Tell her the connection flight's number has changed, she just have to wait there at the gate untill they call her name...

    ...And then the cute Bettie Paige look-alike flight attendant came over to my seat and asked back to her quarters...

    Ha.

    It's just amazing to see the difference between Alaska/Kodiak and the East Coast/Rhode Island. The "bling factor", asshattery and general shitheadedness is quite elevated down here.

    Although I will say I feel like Alaskan girls are a breed of their own. You guys living in "America" are f'n lucky. Goddammit.
