The Flight Attendant's Dilemma
As Savannah sat in her jump seat, mentally preparing for Take-off she wondered how much longer she could do this job. She had been a flight attendant for three years and initially loved every aspect of the job. She loved the travel, of course, but also enjoyed meeting the passengers and the community of the crew. There were lots of benefits. She liked the flexible schedule, free flights, hotel discounts, car rental reductions, and discovering new regions and sites of interest. She had met some amazing people. And let's face it! The position was still highly coveted; It had been a very competitive process getting accepted into the training program and securing the position, working for a major airline.
We discovered this charming little town named "Magical" in South Carolina. It was unique, although the zoning was odd. There were Health Food Stores and Yoga studios mixed in with a Gentlemen's club on the same street. As in every other small town there were strip malls and shops with lambent commerce, well landscaped Garden Apartments, intermittent schools, churches, a hospital and a post office, not necessarily in that order. Small miniature golf courses were set back and sprinkled along the boulevard. We had just arrived at our time share after landing at the small local airport in the center of town, but neither one of us was tired. We were eager to explore.
