Ever since JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater said ‘f*ck you’ to a plane full of passengers, flight attendants everywhere have been venting their frustrations about on the job woes. Now, they have come up with a way to ‘pay back’ the unruly and rude people who treat them like crap.
Much like scorned servers who spit in the food of disrespectful patrons, flight attendants have created a new form of revenge called “cropdusting.” Cropdusting is the act of farting in the face of seated passengers while walking by quickly. A ‘fart-by’ is like the stinky non-violent version of a drive by. The offender is often hard to identify and the crime may only be realized minutes after the actual release. A flight attendant shared his version with The New Yorker in a recent essay.
Those stinky, sneaky little bastards! The worst part of this is that there are so many innocent bystanders who get caught in the crossfire. YUCK.
