Flight Attendants Are Not Babysitters

Lucky enough to fly somewhere this summer on vacation? I am, but so far I only have a one-way ticket to California, and I'm not too anxious to book my return flight. Anyway, this anonymous flight attendant with 12 years in the business has identified her top 7 most annoying passengers. As a semi-frequent flyer, I recognized a lot of these jerks, so consider this a public service.
Did you make the list, guy who throws his carry-on into the first bin in coach, then heads back to his seat in 27D? How about you, lady who overpacks her carry-on, then can't hoist it into the overhead compartment? Anonymous flight attendant is on to you, and so am I.
