Turning to the airport management, I want to express my dissatisfaction with the behavior of girls who miss passengers when they inspect the entrance to the airport building. Girls, especially the young one with a child's voice, show excessive diligence in the search, demanding to take off their outer clothing, show the contents of their pockets (passport, cash, etc.) and all this with all honest people, despite the fact that things can be in their pockets, Not desirable for prying eyes. Others, such as a full girl, openly rude to the elderly, who simply want to call their relatives without going through the search. At the same time, the fat girl throws her out on the street in a boorish manner. Another, cute with a strict kind provokes passengers to indignation, thanks to their so-called work. At the same time it is with great pleasure calling policemen with truncheons to deal with passengers. Obviously, the girl likes this kind of provocations and the pleasures that she feels when the police begin disassembling passengers. In many ways, conflicts arise from scratch, due to the lack of a basket into which to put a women's handbag or briefcase, because at the exit after X-raying, things go dirty. I often fly to different cities, but unfortunately, such ignorance, outright rudeness, bordering on cynicism, trying to get pleasure out of the passengers, to put it mildly out of balance, like vampires sucking blood, I see only in Murmansk. He also noted that such a manifestation, the airport employees show with greater zeal for men. He also noticed that the smokers with incredible ease materyatsya during a smoke on the street. Who, no matter how the airport management should conduct an appropriate conversation with the girls hired. After all, these girls are the face of your company, but worst of all, the face of the city-hero Murmansk. I'm ashamed of my colleagues who have to be escorted from this airport. I strongly recommend the airport management to dismiss these bankrupt workers and not to disgrace our city of Murmansk. And talk to the others and ask them if they ever stood in the frost in the queue for free soup, hinting at what they could do there if they were not polite with the passengers
