Flying on an aircraft is not a right. Paying for a ticket does not give anyone the right to incite ill will.

When you are on an aircraft you are part of a larger group. A group that may at some time find themselves in danger and possibly a fight for their life. If an employee feels that you can not be trusted to function as a part of that group in the event of an emergency then you have no place on board that aircraft.

By using foul language you have proven to us as flight crew to be a problem. Better to solve that problem on the ground than wait until you are needed and find that your only out for yourself.

The safety of all of those around you is paramount to your desire to get off the ground on time. Next time use some tact, filter your ill will and please understand you are possibly the life saver of the person next to you. Allow us to believe you can be a savior rather than a irritant.

Dropping an eff bomb is NOT the same as planting a real bomb. Boo y'all!
