Default You might be a freight dog if..........


You might be a freight dog if…
• Your airplane was getting old when you were born.
• You have not done a daylight landing in the past six months.
• ATC advises you of smoother air at a different altitude, and you don’t give a ****.
• When you taxi up to an FBO they roll out the red carpet, but quickly take it back when they recognize you.
• You call the hotel van to pick you up and they don’t understand where you are on the airport.
• Center asks you to "keep the chickens down" so they can hear you talk.
• Your airplane has more than 75,000 cycles.
• Your company call sign is "Oil Can".
• The lady at the FBO locks up the popcorn machine because you plan on "making a meal of it".
• Your airplane has more than eight faded logos on it.
• You wear the same shirt for a week, and no one complains.
• Center mispronounces your call sign more than three times in one flight.
• Your Director of Operations mysteriously changes your max. take off weight during the holiday season.
• Every FBO makes you park out of sight of their building.
• You have ever walked barefoot through the FBO, .................................... because you just woke up.
• You mark every ramp with engine oil.
• Everything you own is in you flight bag and suitcase.
• All the other pilots wait for you to "test the squall line" first.
• All the other airlines hold to see if you get in.
• You request the visual approach with 300’ overcast and SM vis.
• You make no attempt to deviate around weather.
MORE????????????????????

What about when Atc asks about your ride, you say smooth, even though your coffee is spilling in your lap during your radio call.

Flew with an FO the other day who had the gouge on the ATIS. He said the Yao, Yao, Meow, Meow goes on for 40 seconds before the English version. Great Gouge! Just deselect and hit your timer!
