Have you ever sat in a seat, reached in that pocket only to discover that your copy of the airline’s magazine is covered in somebody else’s gum? Or how about the tissue that they used to blow their nose? As a flight attendant I make several attempts to come through the cabin to collect your trash. Is it so difficult to reach in and grab your pretzel wrapper or empty water bottle and hand it to me? You can put down your candy crush for one fucking minute and clean up after yourself!! It is ...
