“You mean s**t in life”: Passenger cops airline ban after passing vicious note to flight attendant

American Airlines has banned a passenger from travelling with the airline after she passed a rude note to a flight attendant.

According to TMZ, the woman handed a note to an American Airlines flight attendant calling them a “glorified maid” among other vicious things because the flight attendant told her to wear her face mask correctly.

The woman apparently had left her nose exposed, which ultimately defeats the purpose of wearing it.

Twitter user @hibiscuslacroix posted a photograph of the note with the caption: “Today a passenger handed this to a flight attendant upon deplaning. The flight attendant had asked her to wear her mask over her nose. Incredibly done with the general public.”

“You mean s**t in life. You are nothing but a glorified maid who needs to jump down off her high horse and learn how to speak to ppl. Nobody cares about your stupid seat policies or your nose issues. We pay your salary and your attitude is unnecessary,” the note said.

“The very fact that we have to listen and kowtow to a nobody who does s**t except collect our trash and serve crappy food makes me absolutely ill. You are a mask nazi and a four-eyed c**t and if it wasn’t for this job, you would be cleaning motel rooms for $2 tips and meth.

“I made sure to write this on a bag labelled as to what I think your life actually is… A WASTE.

“Warm regards, a person who hates your guts.”

A spokesperson from American Airlines told Travel Weekly the airline is investigating an incident involving a customer passing an offensive and derogatory not to one of its flight attendants.

“This customer’s ability to travel on American has been suspended,” the spokesperson said.

“Our flight attendants are professionals who play a critical role in ensuring the health and safety of our passengers, and we will not tolerate mistreatment of them.”
