In fact, they could shake a diet coke before giving it to you and they wouldn't run afoul of regulations.

    No amount of training (short of firearms training) will prepare anyone to deal with entitled pricks who feel like buying the cheapest fare entitles them to behave like Ernest of Hanover and get praise for their performance. There have been instances of gross misconduct on the FA's part, and it's been recognized and solved. But these days the majority of folks...
