Nothing. They have the power and you don't.

In this world where the majority are POS all you can do is recognize the ones who do well.

Note their name and write a complaint afterward. It does hurt them. In the moment, EY1 is right - they have the power.

Assume they had a bad day due to other POS passengers and brush it off.

Nothing you can do at the time. Depending on your status, if you write a letter to the CEO you may get compensation.

How bad does it look to prospective employers to change jobs every 3 years? I've done this since college (12 years ago) and have tripled my salary as a result. Granted, I've switched between the same two companies each time, getting a big pay bump in the process. Now, the other company is looking at bringing me back again (3rd time). The pay bump won't be as big, but much better WLB, less travel, and I'll be able to do what I love. Opinions on this?

Boomers are often considered selfish, right? Consider the following: People over the age of 75 comprise 54% of COVID deaths. At that age, the actuarial tables aren’t exactly favorable to begin with. By contrast, people under the age of 50 comprise 7% of COVID deaths. Throwing the world into a state of absolute chaos (thereby sticking younger generations with the long-term consequences) is next level.
