View Full Version : Sunglasses in the terminal

I might just have to b-slap the next pilot I see wearing their aviators in the terminal.

Is this becoming an epidemic?

In PHX, literally passed a SKW FO followed by an AA FO on the moving walkways wearing their sunglasses, and the AA FO with a hat on. It felt like a scene from "LA to Vegas".

Then, I arrive home on my commute and there is another pilot in the gate area on his phone texting/facebooking/whatever wearing his shades, too!

Whiskey. Tango. Fox.

BTW, I hear it is always sunny in doucheville.

I sometimes wear my sunglasses for short periods indoors because they are prescription sunglasses and also because I must be a douche. If you are offended by sunglasses then you are going to have a coronary by age 40

I tend to agree aside from the scenarios involving prescriptions, which are likely way less common than just the regular sunglasses choosing to be worn. Sunglasses and earbuds walking through the terminal come off as fairly unprofessional. No, I donít expect you to hold a sign saying theyíre prescription. With many people, you can just.... tell.

And yeah... jacket not buttoned would look sloppy also.

Mine are prescription too. I often leave them on for a quick trip indoors to a taco stand or something like that.

But uniform at the airport I take them off, so the public doesn't get the wrong idea. The public doesn't know your shades are prescription, they just think you're dooshy when you do that.

The public knows that anybody who wears sunglasses indoors is trying to make a statement. They may not know what the statement is.

They also notice slovenly grooming and dress. Millenials may not care, but the older generations who account for 95% of the purchasing power are more inclined to notice stuff like that.

The act of wearing sunglasses indoors might be a little odd, but the true max douche factor guys wear them perched on their brow. Not up on the forehead, or on the nose, but precisely halfway between. There is no excuse for that. Itís the eyewear equivalent of a man bun.

And donít get me started on the skateboard crowd. The only reason to carry one of those on an overnight is for some adult to hit you in the face with it. Repeatedly.

This thread just reminded me of a "story" that allegedly happened in the prop, or very early jet age. One pilot on his day off would don a competitors uniform, and walk through the terminal wearing sunglasses with a walking cane, and a "How To Fly Airplanes" book.

Yes, keeps passengers from asking me any stupid questions. My headset saves my hearing out of the cockpit too. Mowing the lawn, gun range, fireworks, sports events...you name and I wear my headset and my sunglasses to it. Heck, when I flew the space shuttle I would wear my space suit on my drive home just in case my car caught fire. Safety first!

True and sad ex-military story... The nice conservative gym bag I had been using in the USAF for 15 years became suddenly against regulations when the geniuses in senior command decided to make things suck more, and one of the stupid rules was that gym bags used on base had to be only one color. Mine was a nice deep green and dark blue, looked fine, not an eyesore or "unprofessional", until suddenly it was.

However, they put no restrictions on shopping bags. So I raided my wife's closet and found a few of the brightest shiny reusable shopping bags, and started taking those to the gym instead. Bright pink, huge shiny chrome silver stripes, big flowers, etc etc.

Because I never forgot a rule taught to me as a young kid brand new to a flying squadron... Treat every stupid time-wasting non-operational regulation as a tactical exercise to defeat/circumvent, and consider the morons who write them as your deadly enemies. It's good practice developing habitual thought patterns to defeat the rules your real enemies are using, and it sticks it right in the eye of anyone making the warfighter's job harder with unnecessary rules and regulations.

So. Macy's bag to the USAF gym, in the name of combat effectiveness :)

Yea yea cool story bro, whatever. Haters gonna hate :)

If you had read the article, Millennials now travel more on business trips than their GenX and Baby Boomer counterparts. That's where the money is. Millennials are also more likely to buy add-ons like wifi. Again, the claim that "they don't have any money to dictate market forces" is without any facts.

And don't forget that any millennial majoring in basket weaving in college and then moving in their parent's house is a failure of parenting by their Boomer parents.

And then members of this same generation were pulled out of their so-called soft material aimless lives and formed cohesive fighting units that cleared house after house in places like Fallujah Iraq that were infested with bipolar, psychotic sun god worshipping death cult rats unlike any the US Military has seen since Iwo Jima.

Clearing houses in Fallujah shouldn't be the indication of ones worth in society. There are plenty of business leaders, entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, pilots, and yes soldiers that come from the millennial generation.

Clearing houses in Fallujah shouldn't be the indication of ones worth in society. There are plenty of business leaders, entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, pilots, and yes soldiers that come from the millennial generation.

Interesting fact: some of those man-bun wearing commies probably kicked down doors in Iraq

I might just have to b-slap the next pilot I see wearing their aviators in the terminal.

Is this becoming an epidemic?

In PHX, literally passed a SKW FO followed by an AA FO on the moving walkways wearing their sunglasses, and the AA FO with a hat on. It felt like a scene from "LA to Vegas".

Then, I arrive home on my commute and there is another pilot in the gate area on his phone texting/facebooking/whatever wearing his shades, too!

BTW, I hear it is always sunny in doucheville.

Baby Boomers are pretty much the most selfish generation in the history of planet earth. Thanks for the 20 trillion dollars in debt. Thanks for ruining Social Security. Thanks for never winning a war. Thanks for having all those divorces over the years...have you seen the movie "Four Christmases"? Thanks for giving up on religion, now we are bunch
of immoral bastards. Thanks for deciding you would rather jerk around and have fun instead of raising children. And the few kids you decided to have are a bunch of over dramatic crybaby children, oh wait, never mind...my bad.

I am a tail end baby boomer and I will be lucky if I see Social Security and as far as the crybaby kids it's you gen x or millennials or whatever generation you are that do not instill any discipline in your children. They have no respect for their elders or teachers or anyone. I never had "time out' when I was a kid I got knocked out if I got out of line. As far as the multiple wars and debt and loss of religion even though I am not religious myself I am on the same page. I have been working since I was 15 and am now 55 you think I am happy with the ponzi scheme of social security you are mistaken. I better never hear any politician talk about "entitlement" reform. You better believe I am entitled I paid into it I better get it.

The thread IS on track. The pilots who weren't spanked as kids are the ones who wear their sunglasses in the terminal at night, sometimes on their face, sometimes up on their heads, sometimes backwards, sometimes on or with some sort of hat, sometimes outside of work like at a hotel, sometimes at a store or somewhere else they have to stop on the way to/from work.

The common thread is that they're all awesome because they weren't spanked, because this one study showed that spanking is 100% bad all the time.

Carry on.

However, the adult females I SMACK on the a** during intimate occasions BEG for me, Daddy, to do it again and again. Strange how the same act that is hurtful to children brings intense ecstasy to adults caught in the act of love.

This thread started with a probably grumpy old goat telling the kids to stay off his lawn. Now everyone else has jumped in with the every-thing-every-other-generation-is-doing-is-ruining-life-for-everybody-else theme.

If sunglasses being worn in the terminal really gets you spun up, then you are wasting your life energy.

Discipline doesn't have to be violent. There are plenty of non-violent ways of instilling discipline in children. There are plenty of ways for children to "face consequences" that don't involve a belt or spanking.

A pop on the hand, a pinch on the arm, firm grab on the arm are all good alternatives.

Timeout works for my kids, but they need to know that there are repercussions if they lose the respect for time out.

This attitude that spanking a child is somehow destructive to them is perpetuated by individuals who donít understand how to do it properly.

Spanking a child needs to happen when youíre in control. Itís not an immediate ďheat of the momentĒ action and it should never be used as a threat. Itís a consequence. Itís also not the ďgo toĒ option for every offense.

You make sure youíre not doing it in anger. That may require a reasonable waiting period, 20-30 minutes. Let them know itís coming. You make sure the child understands you love them and theyíre receiving the punishment as a consequence for whatever behavior warrants it. Deliver the spanking, comfort them, reaffirm your love for them and move on.

Goggles, luv ya bud, but I just can't resist rolling a hand grenade into this effed up thread.

I'd like someone to do a study of these mass killings in high schools with respect to the end of corporal punishment.

When I was a kid (walking uphill both ways to school barefoot on broken glass), corporal punishment was still borderline OK in schools (ask me how I know :( ). There was never any mass shootings in schools. The very first one I remember was at Columbine in 1999. I'm willing to bet that the shooters were never spanked as children and I'll go further out on a limb and say that none of the high school mass shooters to date was spanked as a child.

My theory is that these kids who committed the mass shootings weren't punished by their parents so they were/are unaware of any negative consequences to their actions.

I'll be seeking a government grant to conduct the study, which I will name, 'The effed up APC lack of corporal punishment results in high school mass shooters' study. I hope that everyone here will write their representative demanding funding for my study.


As for the corporal punishment discussion, as a child, I was Bad to the Bone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyhJ69mD7xI and I deserved every spanking/corporal punishment I received plus many more I didn't receive. My three siblings were rarely ever punished but of course they behaved much better than me.
The bottom line here is that every kid is different (each a snowflake, just to play that double entendre) and different parenting tools need to be applied to different childrens' personalities. Saying that all corporal punishment of children is bad is wrong; it needlessly takes away a parenting tool.

Bottom line: if you want to stop high school mass shootings, don't ban guns - reinstitute corporal punishment. (Just had to make sure I pulled the pin before rolling the grenade into this thread)

I think it's more important do find out what drove the killing. The Maryland shooter may have been clinically depressed. Other mass shooters often suffer from sociopathy, a condition heavily linked to absent or physically abusive parents/guardians.

You, sir, are clueless. What should I do if I'm waiting in the boarding area for an airplane? Should I stand at attention? Should I go give every passenger a hug? Get over yourself.

Thank the sweet baby Jesus reading comprehension is not a major requirement for whatever job it is you do.
And if I were your supervisor Iíd give you a break alright, a nice long one.

If youíre in uniform you take personal calls in private and not in public and certainly not within earshot of anybody.
Anything you do and say in uniform reflects on the company you work for.
If you donít understand any of that youíre a little thick.

This isn't North Korea, and I'm not going to hide in a break room to take a call, or answer a (oh my gosh SOCIAL MEDIA) Facebook message while sitting in the terminal waiting for an airplane to arrive.

Even the highly regulated Air Force allows you to take a phone call in public and in uniform, albeit not while walking. And we can't even put our hands on our pockets... Maybe you should get a hobby, your blood pressure will thank you.

I'd read a book or magazine or the paper.. I'm not a robot nor am I going to just stand near a podium waiting to answer questions. If someone looks lost, I'll help, but there isn't much I can do other than say "go talk to customer service it or a gate agent anyways."

Ladies and gentlemen, Captain America! I bet you only talk about the airplane and the current Operation when it cruise.. after all, you aren't getting paid to chit chat. I'm sure you would never dare to sit down with the elite customers in the dining area to have lunch. Real pilots starve themselves until they can hide in a jet bridge or cockpit. Plane running late? Too bad. You can eat it cold in flight. The flying public should never have to see you eat. It's a disgrace. Forget about using the bathrooms. That's also unprofessional. You can use the lav once everyone is off the airplane.

Thereís a reason why ďweĒ the pilot community are pretty much universally banned across the globe no less of entering an airport lounge in uniform.
Because we canít behave.
Because we treat every buffet like itís a handout from the Red Cross.
Because Captain A-hole over here stuffs his roller bag with anything that will fit.
We are universally disliked in hotel concierge lounges because we canít behave. We use profanity in public and basically donít give a crap. Think people donít know weíre paaaahlots.

Funny thing talking to my kids now that theyíre out of college, they say the same thing... and itís subject of many laughs for them nowadays, just how mine are for me.

A light swat on the butt is probably okay for a toddler in melt-down mode.

But keep a few things in perspective:

A few generations ago wife-beating was ďlooked the other wayĒ-upon.

Thanks to "research" and "studies" we started killing flies with hand grenades. Unfortunately, there's no manual that comes with having kids.

Of course, you don't savagely beat a kid to bloody mess to get your point across. There's a lot to be said for 'reasonable, appropriate and necessary' aspect of disciplining a kid. There are various steps and levels of discipline. If a kid spilled a drink on the table, of course, they wouldn't get popped. If they made an honest mistake, of course, they wouldn't get popped. They'd be shown the right way. But lie to me, and they'd get popped without fail. Be disrespectful, and you get popped without fail. And guess what... being consistent is what it's all about. Grounding a kid meant we were also grounded in some way. They need to learn their actions have consequences on others too. And yes, the kids' feelings will be hurt by their actions - you don't shield them from it. That's how they learn.

In short, there's a big difference between discipline and abuse. Most rational people know it. Did my kids have black eyes? No way. Did my kids ever bleed from getting popped? Hell no! Did they have red bums at times? You better believe it.

Sorry, but I don't put much stake in "experts" who brought us 7th place trophies, "safe spaces" in college, and the butthurt generation (the ones who get offended at anything they don't like). If this is your idea of "advanced world", I truly feel sorry for you and for the generations coming after us. I think the "doomed world" is far more appropriate.

The key word is discipline. It is possible to impart discipline without physical violence. Just because someone refuses to hit their kid doesn't mean they won't discipline them.

My neighbor's kids growing up were never hit by their parents. Their kids include two doctors, a teacher/coach and paramedic and all very successful. It isn't zero sum. If you choose not to hit your kids, it doesn't by default mean they do whatever they want like your are implying. The "be your kid's friend" is what has caused the safe spaces generation.

Not every child needs physical discipline, but some most certainly do. One size does not fit all. If you're a parent, you'd understand. :)
