Dear U. S. Airline,
I would like to report a disturbing incident.
I was flying 1st class and the flight attendant offered a drink and I kindly accepted a bloody mary. I soon realized I made a mistake because I am trying to decrease my alcohol drinking. I gave my drink to my friend that was flying coach because I didn't want the drink to go to waste. The attendant went from super nice to super mean in a heart beat. She earlier asked to take my coat to be hung. When she asked if I gave my drink away, I said yes and told her politely that I didn't know I couldn't give my drink away and I had never heard or read this rule. She replied, ""why don't you use your common sense? And She said this in front of a full cabin so everyone in the 1st class heard this because there is only 4 rows. I felt embarrassed that she would say this basically accusing me of stealing a $5 drink.
I replied to her, ""why don't you be more polite?""
I when back to the back of the plane in a lot of traffic, asked my friend to give me back the drink and returned the drink to her in the galley. She reported me to Captain Leo and I told my side of the story to him and he told me that there are in fact rules (not that obvious) about giving away drinks. I apologized to him and told him that I didn't know about these rules. He complimented my cloths and said that it was only a 3 and 1/2 hr flight and basically just get along for a relatively short flight. This calmed me down and on my way back to my seat I went to the galley and said sorry to ""Nurse Cratchet."" (One flew over the coocoo's nest.) She did not acknowledge me and just looked away. I did not order anymore drinks or food. I lost rust in U.S.Air's representative for common decency and common courtesy.

Because she yelled at me in front of a full cabin and made me go get my drink (in a lot of traffic), she made me feel like a child. More over, she made me feel like a thief. She made no attempt to explain the rules and the logic behind them. Even now, I still don't understand how a $5 drink could cause so much fuss. I would have paid for the fricken drink. No passengers should be made to feel this way specially full paying 1st class passengers.
I will post this report to google, yelp, trip advisor.
An unhappy customer,
