A passenger reportedly left an offensive note for a flight attendant after being asked to wear their mask over their nose.
Handwritten on an inflight sick bag, the note calls the member of American Airlines cabin crew a “mask nazi” and a “glorified maid”.
A photo of the note was shared on social media by Twitter user @hibiscuslacroix, who captioned the picture: “Today a passenger handed this to a flight attendant upon deplaning.
“The flight attendant had asked her to wear her mask over her nose. Incredibly done with the general public.”
The woman’s note read: “Nobody cares about your stupid seat policies or your nose issues. We pay your salary and your attitude is unnecessary.
“The very fact that we have to listen and kowtow to a nobody who does s*** except collect our trash and serve crappy food makes me absolutely ill.”
The passenger added: “If it wasn’t for this job, you would be cleaning motel rooms for $2 tips and meth.
“I made sure to write this on a bag labelled as to what I think your life actually is… A WASTE.”
The Independent has contacted American Airlines for comment; the airline said it was “looking into” the matter.
The shocking incident follows several cases of travellers being removed from flights, trains, and other modes of transport for refusing to wear a mask.

The unnamed female was videoed by a fellow passenger as she was forced to depart the service from Ohio to North Carolina.
The footage shows travellers cheering and clapping as she exits the plane.
“You can clap all you want,” the woman can be heard saying as she leaves the flight after gathering up her bags.
