Re: Stewardesses on my April 27th flight from Washington Dulles to Tampa Florida

First of all, to call a female flight attendant a "stewardess" is insulting.
Second, the term is not "unquote", it's "end quote".
Third, your flight from Hartford to Washington was on a United mainline, not a TED flight, so for all you know, the flight attendent on the TED flight was telling you the truth about policy. Chances are it wasn't what you wanted to hear, so you got angry.
Fourth, there is a difference in volume in 2 cups of juice that include ice and a full can of juice.
Fifth, the FA'a were just fine in asking you to wait a minute to get to the lavatory. Have you ever had to move one of those beverage carts? They can weigh up to 75 pounds. If it was just a matter of a minute, I'm sure you could have held it, unless you are a 2 year old or are incontenent.
Sixth, your comment to the other passenger within hearing distance of the FA's, who are there for safety reasons not to be a waiter in the sky, was wrong on your part. Of course they replied "sarcastically". I would have also. Receive as ye shall give.
Seventh, as a retired business woman, you should know that while without customers there is no business, there are just some customers that cannot be pleased, no matter how hard you try. Personally, Jessica, you sound like one of those people, and I can tell you that if you were a customer of my business, I have a feeling that I would have to "fire" you as a customer, because you would take up more time than you're worth financially.
