Indeed. I had the opportunity to be on a Northwest flight with the senior flight attendant on the airline, and she was in her early sixties. This was back in the early '80s. She was kinda grumpy, though.
Had to re-read your post again to determine who was grumpy -- she or you. It was her...never knew you to be "grumpy"
Although there is another guy in this forum that goes by that nic - LOL
