A few weeks ago I read this article about ten things not to say to a flight attendant. There were several that I agree with wholeheartedly, including “Oh, stewardess!” and “I miss the good old days of hot flight attendants!” But one suggestion really surprised me: only use the call button when it’s really necessary; if you want a glass of water, walk back to the galley to ask for it. I’m usually of the mind that I can wait for beverage service before asking for some water. However, if there are extenuating circumstances—you’re coughing, ill, pregnant, or even if it’s just been a long time—the call button seems far preferable than everyone rushing the galley when they need something. As much as I think I’m always right (hah!), I clearly have learned there are other opinions. So what’s yours?
