Here's the situation.
I've liked flying for ages, when I said to my mum 'I want to work on a plane when I'm older', she said all male cabin crew are gay. She doesn't like gay people very much. I'm not gay, but she might think I am. And I'm currently single, so that's another bad point! So that put me off the idea of working as part of the cabin crew at that age. About a year ago I realised I still didn't know what to do for a career, so I thought about being a pilot.
That's just too expensive, there's no way I can get the money for the training, then there's no guarantee of a job. I've been thinking recently that the only option is to work as part of the cabin crew... I'd get to travel, which I love, fly, which I love, and meet & work with people, which, believe it or not, I also love.
The only problems I can see is the pay.. which from what I know isn't good, (does anyone know what airlines in the UK pay?), and my parents.
Without sounding big headed, I've always been brainy and they always expect the best in everything, but this job wouldn't please them at all. I know I should do what I want to do, but they just wouldn't approve.
So what should I say? You're probably thinking why don't I just tell them - you don't know them, that's why!
Any help would be great, thanks
Edit: I'm not planning on applying for training anytime soon, I just need to tackle the parent issue first of all.
