“Before take off from SeaTac the flight attendants ran through their safety rules as they always do. Not all of us were paying very close attention.

“But a man in the row behind me changed all that by calling out ‘ooh, sexy!’ in response to a female flight attendant demonstrating how to use the life vest.”
