Me: What time do we land? 12:30? East coast time.
Flight attendant: Hmm. What time is it now?
Me: It’s just before 11 East Coast, so 9am Denver time.
FA: We’re due to land at 10:30 Denver time.
A: Okay yeah. 12:30. I haven’t changed my watch yet to Colorado time. Plus my grandmother lives in Denver so I’m used to the time difference.
FA: I live in Denver so I’m used to it too but when you’re flying all over and through various time zones, I’m not quite sure what time it is!
A: Now that is some challenging math.
Not to mention an interesting career choice that bleeds into one’s personal life unlike a lot of other job options. As she pushed the drink cart to serve other customers, I pondered all the questions I had about being a flight attendant. Hey, anything to make the flight time feel faster, right?
