Not so friendly skies

Yesterday I flew solo home on Delta airlines. During the trip the stewardess made her rounds for drink/snacks. She came to my area and I requested 2 bloody Mary's. She ran my credit card and in the process of handing it back to me she said, "I really hate to ask you this but are you pregnant?" I.was.shocked. I asked if she was questioning me because I was of child bearing age or because I'm a little overweight (I mos.def have a "beer gut"). She said she just didn't feel comfortable selling liquor to pregnant women. I told her, 1. she already charged me for the drinks and 2. my or anyone else's medical condition is none of her business and 3. she was extremely out of line. She handed me my drinks and made her way down the isle. During deboarding I walked up to her and asked her name with the intent of making a complaint. After the flight I made my way to the delta customer service area. I asked whom to talk to regarding a problem I had on the flight. The man at the counter told me to look it up on line. I couldn't believe it. He then asked what what the problem was so I told him fighting the urge to cry. He only responded "Oh...well go online and there should be a number for you to call." Judging from the service I received I don't even think contacting Delta would result in anything.
