Not My Job!
Have you ever had fun on a plane. Right all of you get your minds out of the gutter I wasn’t talking about the mile high club. You know what never mind just read this article.
Recently I have taken to travelling on my own. I have made to trips recently and have started to quite enjoy flying.
However my last flight had a well interesting moment. This is my story.
I think that’s your job
While flying on my own recently I was left speechless.
A member of the cabin crew came up to me before take off to offer help. They told me where the life jacket was. Told me if I needed anything during the flight to make sure I would just ask.
This was all normal before she asked a question that I just didn’t know how to answer.
So in the event of an emergency what would you like us to do?
What exactly am I meant to say to that.
Help that isn’t helpful
I would like to say this was meant to be helpful but really this shouldn’t have been asked of a blind passenger on a plane.
You are trained in what to do in an emergency you shouldn’t be asking me for my advice.
You should be telling me what to do because guess fucking what. I don’t have a clue what you should do!
You could say I am being to critical but it is these people that I would be trusting to know what to do if something went wrong.
Now thankfully nothing went wrong and for the sake of blind people every where I hope nothing goes wrong on a flight with her in charge.
On he other hand
Look in all honesty chances are had something gone wrong that didn’t mean we were all going to die anyway the cabin crew would have gone in to action and I wouldn’t have been left on a burning plane sinking in to the ocean on my own.
But it doesn’t exactly fill you with joy and wonder when the people you would be relying on in that situation don’t seem to know what they are doing.
But as I say nothing went wrong I just thought I would tell my story and maybe give others a chance to tell theirs.
Let me know in the comments below if you have ever had anything like this happen to you.

I haven’t had anything like that happen, but it always baffles me that we’ll be the last to be evacuated in the event of an emergency.
