“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.
         
“What kind of school do surfers go to?”/“Boarding school” and “What kind of school does a carpenter go to?”/“Boarding school” are similar “boarding school” jokes.
     
   
Wikipedia: Boarding school
A boarding school is a school where pupils live within premises while being given formal instruction. 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 functioning, codes of conduct and ethos vary greatly. Children in boarding schools study and live during the school year with their fellow students and possibly teachers or administrators. Some boarding schools also have day students who attend the institution during the day and return home in the evenings..

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