A video from Instagram sees a man who says: & # 39; Don't correct me again, dude. & # 39;

He then declares: & # 39; I earn much more money than this guy & # 39; and apparently refers to a flight attendant who earns a salary of $ 30,000.

The man on camera goes further: & # 39; So you prefer eight people here waiting to use the bathroom while it is empty? That is not true. And now you threaten to call the police? Call them. & # 39;
