Flight attendant divides opinion after asking passenger very personal question

A FLIGHT attendant has divided opinion after asking a passenger a very personal question during a plane journey.

The cabin crew member got a bit too familiar with one of the people on her flight as they were coming out of the toilet.

They threw the question out on social media site Reddit to find out if it was usual behaviour.

They wrote: “I went to the restroom about an hour into the flight and took care of my business.

“Once I closed the door after finishing the flight attendant, who was opening soda cans right next to the bathroom asked, ‘Did you flush the toilet?'”

This left the passenger feeling shocked, and meant they spent the rest of the flight wondering if this was a common question from flight attendants.

They continued: “I was a little shocked at this question considering I am an adult and know how to use the restroom.

“So I just said yes and continued back to my seat but I was still confused why she would even ask me that question.

“Is this type of thing normal on flights?”

Perhaps surprisingly, some flight attendants responded and said that it was something they had done before.

One replied: “Yes it’s normal. So many people treat it like a port-o-potty and I’m tired of seeing someone else’s pee and poo.”

Another said: “How many times have you walked into a restroom and the toilet wasn’t flushed? I’m sure plenty of times.

“They are just to trying promote cleanliness, nothing wrong with that.”

However, others felt the questioning was a little too personal for their liking.

One said: “That’s pretty invasive not gonna lie. I’d be uncomfortable too.”

Another agreed that it wasn’t normal, but said they still had some sympathies with the flight attendant.

They added: “I personally would never ask, but you have no idea how many people don’t flush, or clean the bowl if they’ve made a mess.”

Another flight attendant revealed the gross mistakes passengers make when going to the toilet on planes.
