...and other horror stories shared by flight attendants.

This one got to me:

One flight attendant friend — I’ll call her Janet — nearly lost her job after physically assaulting a female passenger. The woman was traveling with an infant and insisted that Janet dispose of a used diaper. Hungry passengers breathed a sigh of relief when Janet, who happened to be serving food from a meal cart at the time, refused to handle the soiled nappy. She suggested that the woman manage the grim job on her own. Infuriated, the woman hurled the diaper. It struck Janet in the head, splattering her blond locks with excrement.

I'm glad to hear she only "nearly" lost her job. We all know what happens to a passenger who tries to assault a flight attendant, but in this case, I think I'd applaud any flight attendant who fought back against a loaded diaper assault.
