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

How many other customers got upset because they wanted more to drink than the policy was given to them? How many other customers decided that they couldn't possibly wait for the beverage cart to come back up the aisle before going to the bathroom? How many other customers went around complaining to other people *in front of the flight attendants* about how unpleasant they (allegedly) were?
I suspect that the TED flight attendants will not all be on the unemployment line if you go off to make ridiculous demands on another airline. I also suspect that they will not be all that torn up that their company has lost a customer who makes their jobs that much more difficult.
In fact, there is at least one person thinking, "Maybe TED is the airline for me! They don't seem to be encouraging disruptive passengers to be even more disruptive" as often happens when service providers get too caught up in the "the customer is always right" mindset.
And as others have said, you probably want to drop the "stewardess" bit, for exactly the same reason that you wouldn't have been too thrilled if someone had come into your business, whatever it was, and said to you, "Hey, sweetie, go get me a coffee." Being respectful of people whose difficult job you're busy making more difficult really won't kill ya.
