May I call you Jerry? After Lady Gaga removed her shirt and held up her middle finger at a Mets game, she was escorted to your private box seats. Later on you complained about the singer’s behavior by stating, “I can’t believe they put her in my box that I paid for! You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”
Hate to break it to you but the answer is yes, Jerry, this is the world we’re living in now. Sad, isn’t it? All one has to do is act up and they’re instantly rewarded for bad behavior. Never mind the nice people. Let’s just reward the jerk who yells the loudest. I see this happening all the time – on the airplane. I’m a flight attendant.
“Excuse me, Miss, my reading light doesn’t work,” said a woman seated in an aisle seat at the front of the cabin. An elderly gentleman rested his head upon her shoulder.
“Feel free to move to any open seat in coach,” I told her.
“Do you have two seats together?”
I looked around. “No…sorry. But there’s another aisle seat available three rows back.”
She sighed. “What about first class?”
It really amazes me at the rudeness of people in general. On planes, what ever happened to people dressing up and showing that they actually care about themselves. Now, people look as if they rolled out of bed. Kindness gets you everywhere. Flight crews have difficult jobs and I always say thank you on my way out for a safe flight.
