Eating After 8p: Ummmm…whoever created this idiotic food rule never worked as an international flight attendant, cause, ummmmmm, it’s always after 8p somewhere!!! And then, you’re in the sky, so technically the timezone changes somewhere to make it before, or the next-day, or who knows. All I know is that Nazi-esque food rules do not work with this life. Be as healthy as you can be. Eat when you feel hungry, or more accurately, when you actually have a second and aren’t running from forward cabin to aft, serving everyone else their midnight snacks.
Sleeping Only At Night: You sleep whenever you can, wherever you can…and with whoever you can??? JUST KIDDING. That last part was a joke. Please no emails.
Only Drinking Coffee In The Morning: Morning…again timezones. And sleep deprivation. Drinking coffee matters, but when becomes irrelevant when you are a flight attendant.
Where You Are Going: When crews do not stay at the destination, they don’t really care where it happens to be. All that matters is when you have to get to work, and when you will be back home.
Where You Are Now: You’re pretty sure it will include one of the following: an airport, an airplane, or a hotel. How much where a flight attendant is matters only to the extent of how many hours said flight attendant gets to stay. If it’s not many, it doesn’t matter.
