If you’ve boarded an aeroplane to fly away on holiday, then you’ve heard the flight attendant’s safety chat.
You know the one – where the exits are, that your life jacket is under your seat and how to put it on, inflate it and blow the whistle and if the cabin pressure drops then the oxygen masks will drop from above your head and you need to use them.
Just pondering on that last bit though .. don’t they always tell you to put yours on first before helping children and those struggling around you?
As children we are taught to be polite to other people and offer our sweeties first to others. In fact, if you think back it was almost as if everyone else should come first and it was very rude to just think of yourself. That of course would be selfish!
So why when we are flying on a plane should we do exactly the opposite then?
