As some know, I'm quite interested in the BDO program and the rights of pax regarding ignoring BDOs and refusing to talk to them. Occasionally I'll read a curious response, though - a pax will ask a BDO how long it's been a BDO, along with "How was the 1-week training course?" Most accounts detail BDOs really, really hating that question. Is it true that BDOs are trained in 1 week? Is this a point of embarrassment to them? Wondering about the story behind this.
