It all depends on how you handle your man-man relationship with the other crew. If I'm the CS or LS flying with you, with your present mindset, I will definitely zap you?
i totally agree with M and Abercromie.
all i can say in this industry. you really have to EAT ALOT OF HUMBLE PIE. remember all your sorries, please & thank you.
i know all these do sound very wayang. but in order to survive in this industry, you will have to do all these. if not, you will be very miserable in sq.
there are reasons why senior crew are considered zappy. they are just very black and white. in order not to get into trouble, you just have to know your work well. like these, they will have nothing to pick on. even IF YOU ARE NOT AT FAULT, just say sorry. do not bother explaining or talking back. you will just get it 10 times worse. believe me, i have gotten my fair share of zapping and lecturing too. why? because i didn't know my work well. these incidents just made me a stronger person, it teaches me that i must know my work at the back of my hand so all these so called top 10,zappy,sister or whatsoever has nothing to bitch about.
fyi, "sisters" in sq are genuinely very nice people. unless you come across as swanky and i-know-my-work-better-than-you attitude. you are just gonna get it as equally bad.
at the end of it, it's all about being humble.just be strong and hang on it there. tell yourself at the end of the flight, you won't see them again.
remember your work and don't ever talk back.
trust me, you realised that you become a stronger person after each flight.
if you wanna talk about about late 80s or 90s culture in sq, my seniors told me pots and casseroles will go flying in the galley. they will shout at you infront of passengers during meal service. they will shout at you to get out of the galley and work in the other galleys. or else, you just stand outside throughout the whole flight. you won't even dare to drink or eat mind you.
you can ask abercromie, i am sure he/she has more flying experience.
