How do you handle remarks when on an airplane?

I’m a flight attendant for a major airline and I often have other flight attendants (with disgust sometimes) ask me to brush my shoulders off. Passengers will make comments as well. How should I handle this the best way? I’m so self-conscious because our uniforms are all dark colors.

    I worked the cosmetic industry. Most of the time people were fine. If I got a question I would answer and that was that. Once in a while I got one that wouldn’t shut up about my skin. I’m over 50. I just don’t deal with people like that. I would just walk away lol

    Oh my goodness I am so sorry that you are having to deal with this. If it were me, I would just explain it to them upfront and ask them not to be judgmental as it is hard enough as it is. – Clair, Community Moderator
