Feb 22nd 2011 7:30PM I believe if you have tried and tried, and exhausted all other avenues, why not try this. If he is humiliated and knows this is the consequence of bad grades then he may just try to get better grades. Sometimes it takes drastic measures to receive drastic results. I work at a middle school and trust me, there isn’t a whole lot of adult control anymore. Kids get away with so much more then we did and with no consequences. We were respectful of authority. Kids have no respect anymore. (most not all) Since when is it ok to curse at a teacher and nothing happens? How many of your kid’s friends call you by your first name? Discipline sure has declined in our country. Adults no longer have rights. It’s all about the kids. Why was Child Protective Service or any family service called? This boy was not being neglected or abused. He was being taught a lesson by being tough on him mentally. He has control weather this happens again. If he doesn’t like it fix it. Get better grades. Maybe just maybe he will be a great asset to society later in life because he was taught humility, and hard work. Like most of us were at his age. We need to quit thinking about “hurting their feelings” and start being adult parents . Sometimes it takes drastic measures. I wish Rhonda good luck and applaud her for at least trying all and any avenue.
Sep 25th 2010 5:36PM It's a unifom people. If you don't want to wear the uniform then don't apply for the job. And if you're a passenger then don't buy a ticket if you don't like the way the do business. I 've flown many a times and the attendents look like they just rolled out of bed or could care less. Back in the day they used to be respectful to the passengers. I think respect is earned, if they aren't respectul to me why would I want to be respectful to them. I think these attendent look professional and respectful. Hopefully they act it as well.
May 16th 2010 2:57PM I appreciate someone doing the leg work. I don't think the way she handled herself was too much. At everystep she asked a question that any given passenger would. Just because we know she changed her seat several times doesn't mean they might not have to deal with someone who does. It's still common courtesy for the airline personnell to be friendly and courteous. I think the basic and easiest thing to do is give eye contact and give a smile. It cost nothing and it takes no time at all, and it's thier job to attend to the passengers. The Mystery Flyer wasn't asking anyone to do something out of thier job discription. And these personnel should have the information needed for questions that might come up. AKA internet cost...if you don't know the answer you find it. Again that is thier job. If you go to a resteraunt and ask if they have fresh fish, if your server didn't know they would find out for you. Not just say " I don't know" and do nothing. So why should we accept that in any other situation? I also don't want to hear the Flight attendents personl issues with thier company. It wasn't solicitated on the passengers part and it's very bad business. I know it happens but that is the purpose of the Mystery Flyer. If you don't address a problem it can't be fixed. Bringing it to peoples attention helps EVERYONE remember that complaining while on the job is not productive. No matter what your job is. Friendliness and a smile go a very long way when working with the public. Especially with the more diffecult people. You just might turn them around too. Thank you Myster Flyer. Keep up the good work and I can't wait for your next flight information .
