If you think you're annoyed by your fellow airplane passengers, then just try being a flight attendant.
We asked a group of flight attendants to each name the ONE thing they wish passengers would stop doing on a plane. And we have to say, their responses definitely inspired us to clean up our acts. (Plopping a dirty diaper into a flight attendant's hands?! Gross.)
These responses come from the Facebook page for Flight Attendant Career Connection, an online forum led by author and former flight attendant Abbie Unger. So please, please, PLEASE take note. Your cabin crew really wishes you'd stop...
