I became a flight attendant partly because I was engaged to a pilot, and I wanted to know what my life was going to be like after we got married.
I had questions that I could only answer by experiencing it myself – like:
- What is he thinking about when he’s away on a trip?
- What’s he feeling at the end of his travel day?
- What in his head about his job?
I can’t truly know what he thought or felt (other than what he told me), but I know what I learned – it was:
- I’m tired.
- I’m really tired.
- I’m sooooooo tired.
Based on our conversations, it was pretty much the same for him, so I think I nailed it.
I actually had no problem with the schedule thing – I was well aware that he’d be away. My husband, however, eventually quit being a pilot with the resignation note of “I miss my wife.”
