Flight attendant Jessica Leinos (jessica.dreis)
How many times have you been in a public place and refrained from laughing at other people's stupid questions?
Jessica Linus, a 34-year-old Brazilian flight attendant from Rio de Janeiro who has been working in Chicago for the past two years, shared with her followers on Instagram the dumbest questions she had to deal with while on duty and the "methods" of the male passengers on the plane to approach her.
She revealed that many passengers pretend to be sick to get close to her, with some leaving their phone number on napkins or looking her up on social media after the flight.
Jessica said that she encounters requests from passengers to enter the cockpit of the plane and also to bring them extra food.
But that's not what amuses her the most.
Many also tried to start with her on the plane.

"We facilitate all kinds of strange requests all the time," she said, "People ask me if it is possible to open the window. Or if it is possible to heat their baby's milk, where they can buy candy and if I have a private bathroom on the plane."
Of course, private services do not exist on regular flights, but only on business flights in first class, and this is not always available either, and it is unnecessary to explain why it is forbidden to open a window during a flight.
"They even ask if it's possible to sit on the empty seat they saw in first class," she added, "My favorite question is 'where can I smoke' and I usually answer that you can smoke as soon as you leave the airport."
But don't think that it's so bad to be a flight attendant, there are many advantages to it.
Jessica said that most of the passengers are very nice and many times they give the flight crew gifts such as chocolates, Starbucks coupons and also tips during vacations.
