“Flight attendants go to boarding school”

"Do flight attendants have to go to boarding school?” is a joke that was posted on Twitter by Pundamentalism‏ on September 20, 2011. “When I was six-years-old, my parents sent me off to boarding school.  They were desperate for me to be a flight attendant” was posted on Twitter on July 13, 2013.

“Flight attendants go to boarding school” was posted on Twitter on March 27, 2014. “I’d like to think all flight attendants went to boarding school” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on February 1, 2018.


Wikipedia: Boarding school
A boarding school provides education for pupils who live on the premises, as opposed to a day school. The word “boarding” is used in the sense of “room and board” i.e., lodging and meals. As they have existed for many centuries, and now extend across many countries, their function and ethos varies greatly. In some times and places boarding schools are the most elite educational option (as in the classic English rivals, Eton and Harrow, which have produced many prime ministers), whereas in other contexts, they serve as places to segregate children deemed a problem to their parents or wider society. Notoriously, Canada and the United States tried to assimilate indigenous children in the Canadian Indian residential school system and American Indian boarding schools respectively. Some function essentially as orphanages, e.g. the G.I. Rossolimo Boarding School Number 49 in Russia. Tens of millions of rural children are now educated at boarding schools in China. Therapeutic boarding schools offer treatment for psychological difficulties. Military academies provide strict discipline.

As a kid I dreamed of becoming a flight attendant. My dreams were crushed when I couldn’t get into boarding school.
