So I got hit in the face with a plastic cup today

by a passenger who had roughly 0.000% self-control or patience for anything ever. I was backing up my beverage cart right after I finished my drink service and I didn’t make it three rows before people tried putting their empty cups on top of my beverage cart. This shit is unfortunately normal and…

I don’t know what it is about trash, that certain passengers can’t stand having it in their presence. May it be a plastic cup, a straw wrapper, a tissue…anything! I have had passengers become borderline belligerent when I inform them to hold on to their trash, since it is not sanitary for me to take their snot rags or vomit bags while I’m trying to serve drinks. My favorite remains when there is moderate to severe turbulence, and the announcement has been made that Flight Attendants will have to remain seated, and to ring the call button only in the event of an emergency. 75% of the time, ten minutes later, that call button will ring…I’ll do a modified cha cha slide up the aisle, all because someone wants to give me a cup. You gotta be shittin me.
