Scene: Boeing 757-200 (JNH, you're so jealous), Ft. Lauderdale to NYC, final descent
Announcement: Ladies and gentlemen, we have begun our final descent into the New York area. At this time, all seat backs and tray tables need to be brought to their full, upright, locked position. All portable electronic devices that you have been using must be turned off and stowed. Flight attendants will be in the aisle to collect any remaining service items that you wish to discard. (blah blah blah, you get the drift)
Flight attendants do their compliance check, etc.
Announcement: Flight attendants please be seated for arrival.
Ding - f/a call button, I answered it.
Passenger, with eyes lit up like Christmas, pointing: Um, aren't portable electronic devices supposed to be turned off? What about that guy with his noise cancelling head phones? Isn't that hazardous?
Me: What about me?! I was just told to be seated!!!
