Personalized thank you

I received one around the time I became a million miler. It wouldnt offend me if the FA signed with initials. I also received a hand written note from an FA one time stating that a report would be written about two unruly passengers seated behind me. Guy freaked out when I reclined my first class bulkhead seat. He wasnt tall, or trying to use a laptop, he was just drunk

I found one of those notes on my seat when I boarded in C+ on a LHR-BOS flight. It was a flight with about 50 passengers, so I think the GAs were looking for something to do! But I did appreciate it, especially since I had just made a long run from a delayed connecting flight; the other personal touch was hearing my name paged as I ran to the gate.

If Im her and knew my gesture of goodwill was subject to public consumption not as intended, Id be justifiably upset at this.

Not or trying to be so pessimistic and negative about this, just trying to make aware of the situation.
The amount of public information available about all of us is alarming. If someone is going to be a creeper they don't need this thread to do it.

You are absolutely right, I totally get that. All of our public information is readily available.

My point was the intention of employee was to recognize the individual, not have her name posted on a public forum. There is a lot of people in this world with that name, but weve eliminated that anonymity by isolating her here by her occupation. Shes the only <NAME> in the country that does that job.

Im a pilot, my pay rates are publicly available, I tend to have nice things. My job keeps me away from home and out of the country at least 15 days a month. I too would like to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.

Again, not trying to be crazy about this but some awareness may be prudent.

It trips me out how many of my friends post travel data on social media.. "Leaving for two weeks in Europe" (Great time to come rob our house!)

The trick is not to have burglars for friends. I bet I have posted a thousand pictures of me being out of town and, knock on wood, haven't had a burglary yet.

I did receive one and it was quite nice of them, while I am sure its suggested they do this in flight they are under no direct obligation (that I am aware of) that they have to write notes come hell or high water.

Now the guy next to me in F sure moaned and groaned about it and how "the FA HAS to do these and its dumb blah blah blah"

On a recent international flight, the pilot handed out personalized cards to me and another DM/MM. Nice touch.

I guess I have more "shady" friends. haha. Seriously, I have done that as well, but my feed is limited to my friends. Many people don't realize they post this stuff publicly or to friends of friends (or worse, to the whole twitterverse).

Not always. I know a new manager at my office that is a complete nobody on the internet. And they don't have a common name. I don't know if it is intentional on their part or they are just lucky.

Edit: I wasn't being an internet creeper. Really I wasn't. Just curious.

I never got that before, but just flew Jet Blue Mint, and got the card with the FA's names on it and thought it was such a nice touch! It also encouraged me to send an email to JetBlue thanking them by the name for truly excellent service. When I get excellent service on DL, I usually give them a Diamond certificate, tweet DL, or ask them to write their name down on a napkin so I can email DL later.

You make a good point about flippantly creating opportunity to single out someone.

However the lines between prudence, paranoia and wearing tin foil hats can be thin.

I had one of those, once, on an international flight. BUT I did have the local agent thank me for being a medallion member - twice - when checking a bag for a recent flight. It may seem like a silly thing to those who are uber-kryptonite members, but for somebody like me with much less status? I thought it was a very nice touch.
