    I had just gotten used to the idea of flight attendants being women, especially hearing my mom talk about the height and weight requirements (you had to look like a supermodel at all times in that job) that I just never pictured a male flight attendant. Things have changed since the 70's

    ahhhh. got it. Not that I demand it but as a man, having a pretty flight attendent sure is nice. Here we have a very small airport and flight industry so I see the same flight attendents a lot and most on domestic flights are women here and damn if a couple wouldn't be top models, destroying most.

    Sorry. My fault. Just having fun. I've been known to be a little sarcastic. Now and then. The PC stuff is a curse that cuts too many ways to mention. I'm not sure how far from reality we can get, but I think we're exploring the limits.

    We don't interact much and I am usually the more sarcastic by far with others so you throw me from time to time...

    Wow at you thinking that I was deflecting rather than recognizing that I was communicating indifference towards your anecdote.

    Yeah, now they're all "flight attendants": "rrring" Please attend to me....

    And there are no more actresses either: everyone's an "actohr"!
