Should a general member be outraged when they pay the same on a ticket as a Global Services customer and the GS gets a bunch of extras and usually special treatment? It isn't like a general member is going to be warned at ticketing they are not as special as a GS.
Sorry I disagree - NRSA are not to be prioritized in any way, for service, food, beverages or attention. If, after all services have been provided, there is a gap in the service plan on a longer flight and they want to chat quietly and discreetly in the galley, that's fine - but I take offense to chatting in the cabin area, talking across other passengers, or providing extras/freebies, etc to NRSA. In fact, the rules are clear that NRSA shall get the last choice of meal and beverages on the flight and will be denied service if there is not enough catering on board.

NRSA are like children - they should be neither seen, nor heard, and amazingly enough, I was able to follow these simple rules during the years I flew as a NRSA on Eastern and Delta.
