The other night the service was over, the flight attendants had cleaned up the cabin and asked everyone if they wanted refills, then the call light at row 18 right on the A320 went off. The flight attendant approached,
F/A. "May I get you anything?"
Pax. "I need to go use the restroom, could you wake the person next to me up so I can get out of my seat?" I thought this has got to be a joke. (The pax was a 40 something year old woman who was making the request.)
F/A looked at the man who was asleep (or so the pax thought, he later said it was the only way to get some peace from Chatty Cathy), his one eye opened and it rolled, knowing he (the pax) had a sense of humor the f/a jerked his arm and said. He get up and let the lady out.
Pax, "Thank You."
F/A ," Yeah but you are on your own in the lavatory."
Pax, "There is a call light in there too you know."
with a little humor.
Folks, hate to break it to you. You are on your own in the lavatory, unless it is an emergency, and yes it is ok to ask the man snoaring next to you if you can get out.
