Diary of A Flight Attendant - Indecent Exposure by Talise DaNeé
You see some crazy things when you work in the airline business. Sometimes all you can do is sit back and laugh. After take off, the pilots normally don't turn off the fasten seatbelt sign until we have reached 10,000 feet. Sometimes, they take a little longer to turn it off than some passengers are willing to wait.
We have just reached cruising altitude, and I receive the sign from the captain letting me know that he will not be turning of the fasten seatbelt sign right now. I pick up the interphone and begin informing everyone, "Ladies and gentlemen, the Captain has decided to leave on the fasten seat belt sign. We ask that you please remain seated with your seat belt securely fastened. Should he decide to turn off the seat belt sign, you may feel free to move about the cabin as necessary. However, we do ask that for your safety, anytime you are in your seat, you keep your seatbelt fastened."
I had not even hung up the intercom when I see a man get up out of his seat and head for the back of the plane. One of the other flight attendants jumps in front of him and explains to the man that he has to wait until the Captain turns off the fasten seat belt sign before he can get out of his seat. After giving the flight attendant a hard time, the man finally sits down.
A few minutes later, a lady sitting across from the man waves for us to come here. We walk back to see what she wants, and she points over to the man who had gotten out of his seat a few minutes ago. This man has unzipped his pants, pulled out his penis, and is urinating in a pop bottle. My co-worker and I start laughing hysterically. I guess the man couldn't hold it in for a few minutes.
I go back to the front of the plane and leave the male flight attendant to handle that situation. Bruce (the male flight attendant) figured the least he can do is hold a blanket up to cover the man from the view of other passengers and give the man some privacy while he does his business. That is one passenger I will probably never forget.
