Anyone who deals with the general American public knows EXACTLY how this airline steward felt. As an ER nurse I see it and hear it everyday. Even though I'm a male nurse, some of the insults and foul language hurled at me occasionally, often by young females, is unbelievable. Natuarlly this same patient then expects me to place a painless IV and get pain medication immediately. The days of mutual respect are long gone in a society that only teaches me, me, me.
Viva the male nurses that I've worked with in a hospital and been helped by when a patient in agony in ER's and during surgery..the wise sweet patients knew with a guy in the equation the lifting and all was going to go a heck of a lot better..and the stuff the helpers of this world accomplishes in the face of our declining manners amazing...
Wishing you some grateful patients and co-workers..my best job was as a Ward aide in a hospital..great commraderie with employees..(most)..and patients..(most).
And when it comes to the verbal trades and slingshots..women can be worse...especially with the young..and how being snyde is cool..the ugglier the better..the calm speech and long purposeful walkaway would have been the better side of valor; the best for this guy; imho; but sure hope the punch in the story sends as many lessons to others as he has dialed up for himself.
