Flight attendants are known for their exceptional service and dedication to ensuring a comfortable journey for passengers. However, a recent TikTok video by Garret Clanton (@gowithgarret) suggests that flight attendants may have a secret game they play with passengers. In this game, they supposedly communicate their interest in a passenger by saying a specific phrase. The revelation has left many travelers intrigued and wondering if they have ever encountered this hidden game during their flights.
The Game: “See You Later”
According to Garret, the game is called “See You Later” and is exclusively played by flight attendants during the deplaning process. As passengers exit the aircraft, flight attendants typically bid them farewell and wish them a pleasant stay at their destination. However, if a flight attendant says “see you later” to a passenger, it allegedly means that they find that passenger attractive and may be interested in them.
Garret advises passengers to pay attention the next time they disembark from a flight. If a flight attendant says “see you later” to them, it might be a subtle indication of interest. However, it’s important not to misinterpret friendliness for flirtation and to act with tact and respect, considering the professional environment and the presence of other passengers.
To Shoot Your Shot or Not?
The question arises, should passengers try to pursue a connection with the flight attendant who says “see you later”? Garret suggests a diplomatic approach, considering the potential interest shown by the flight attendant. He suggests sharing your contact information discreetly and leaving the ball in their court. If they reach out, it could be a sign of mutual interest; if not, it’s possible they were simply being friendly, as flight attendants are known for their warm and welcoming demeanor.
While the authenticity of this secret game remains unclear, it has sparked conversations among travelers who now find themselves contemplating past flight experiences. Some humorously expressed concern about facing rejection if they don’t hear the magic phrase on their next flight.
Flight Attendants’ Perspective
In response to Garret’s TikTok video, a flight attendant claiming to participate in the game commented that they often say “see you later” to passengers without any romantic intention. However, they also mentioned that they would continue using the phrase, teasingly suggesting that they may occasionally be interested in passengers after all.
So, the next time you step off a plane, will you be listening carefully for the telling phrase “see you later”? While the game’s existence may be disputed, the speculation and curiosity it has generated prove that there’s always more to discover during air travel.
