I had high hopes for this book. I was hoping that it would be a funny, quick read. It was not. In fact, it is one of the worst books I have ever had the privilege of reading. The flight attendant is a big ol’ bitch and thinks quite highly of herself and her looks. If she can’t deal with a job where she is working with the public, maybe she should have become a bearded accountant.
She brags about how her and her coworkers will steal items that are left by passengers (some losing their jobs over stolen electronic devices when they are tracked back to them.) How she will send bags meant to go to LA to Seattle if the passenger gets a little bit of an attitude with her (which I’m pretty sure she probably deserves). I don’t know if she thought that she was trying to be funny by adding “hehehe” here and there, but she was not funny in the slightest.
Overall? AWFUL BOOK. Do not waste your time on it!
I was given a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
A brash, funny, and downright ballsy ode to the ups and downs of life in the air. Diary of a Pissed-Off Flight Attendant is an eye opening, behind the scenes, indiscreet account based on almost two decades of aviation industry experience. Combining a unique blend of hilarious customer antics with the secrets behind the enviable lives of flight attendants and pilots, Diary of a Pissed-Off Flight Attendant provides an all-access pass for frequent flyers and novice travelers alike. Growing up, author Sydney Pearl admired her Aunt Claire’s seemingly glamorous career. Then, Sydney became a flight attendant and found out it was a lot less glamorous and a lot more stressful than she’d thought it would be. Whether admitting to intentionally spilling drinks on passengers, or telling the story of how she unknowingly became “the help”, Sydney Pearl takes you on a gut-busting journey into what really happens above 10,000 feet.
