Default Millennial 'oddity' thread:

Please don't make this a Civ vs Mil thread. This is intended to be Old vs Young. It's also strictly for polling purposes.

Stuff I've heard so far:

'Recorded for Social Media': Millennial FO sits down and pulls out Go-Pro camera, mounts it. Captain: "Ahh put that away." Millennial FO: "But I record all my flights!" Captain: "Not this one" (calls DO and has her removed from the trip)

'Gesture Bullying': Heard two versions: Millennial FO became upset because Captain was pointing at him/her too much (reasons unknown) and Millennial FO became upset because captain put his hand near the flap lever without being ordered to (more than once even!). Could possibly have both happened and be 2 x separate instances.

'Checklist Abuse': Millennial FO was PF and behind the airplane on arrival. Captain assaults FO in shoulder area with checklist, "Hey, how about the approach check??" Millennial FO is physically injured and demands mediated de-breif because he/she was "attacked in the workplace". Captain had to promise to stop hitting people with laminated pieces of paper.

'GET YOUR OWN MEAL, ***HOLE': Millennial FO refused to bring up both meals (when asked) because of, well....I don't really know.

'Its EUROPEAN!': Millennial FO had uniform pants tailored to resemble 'skinny jeans' (google it) and had shirt sleeves shortened to Terry from Reno 911 specs (Google "Reno 911 Terry", then click images). Another new FO with a comparable employee # + normal pants/shirt proceeds to chew him out for looking retarded and embarrassing all new hires in the AOC. Multiple pilots witnessed the event. Result/Consequences unknown at this time.

'UNRECEPTIVE': Captain was super super old (like more than 50!!) and on the way out, didnt give a **** so why argue? Millennial FO had a lot, I mean an awful lot, of suggestions. Old Captain didn't really listen and stared out the side window. Millennial FO: "YOURE BEING REALLY UNRECEPTIVE." Consequence unknown, assuming Captain retired or is dead.

'The Triple': Can PERSONALLY vouch for the validity of this one; I'm the one who reported it. 4 man, I mean "person" 777 crew in CAN. 3 old men + one young 'girl' (presumed gender unknown) with a bad haircut and puffy parka. The 3 x old dudes stood near the front desk and talked while they checked out, while Zhe stood off to the side and alone, gender excluded. Unsure if a formal complaint was filed on Zer behalf, so I filed one out moral responsibility.

This is it, boys. I don't want to live in Clown World. It's just not funny anymore.

I hear of issues on our (UAL) narrow body/junior fleets ... Pro standards called and refused to continue with the captain because the captain said something bad/sarcastic about the airline. I've been an RJ captain for 9 years and I do it like... Other chicken fecal matter issues as well.

On the bright side I have less than 2 years to go.

I see your leadership conundrum and understand why you wouldn’t post this in jetflyers. Btw, there are plenty of old questionable pilots in our past. Just google it.

Leadership what? I just do my best to use gender-neutral pronouns, because altering Webster's is the most important thing we can do here! Approaching minimums, Zer.

I now have trouble finding casual shirts which are not tailored for effete skinny kids who want a snug fit I guess to accentuate their effete-ness. I'm not huge huge, but typical size L shirts are now quite constraining (arms/shoulders, not gut haha). XXL are too long.

It must skip a generation, I recommend we bring back some of the pre-crm Nam vets to sit left seat for the first loft.

Or how about the boomers who keep stealing from us to fund their retirement?

"....Its okay. The system selects the right people who are most qualified for the job. There is simply no need for pilot input from line pilots on who would be a good fit--the testing, interviewing, and process developed over years by hard data says this is the best way to select pilots.

Oh...we'll look at one of your folks...every ten years...and put them in a stack with other similar recommendations... "

Seriously--I've always thought our crew force--the folks who do the job day and night around the world--would be a good filter for selecting some of our pilots for the chance to interview here. I've yet to meet a pilot here who would recommend anyone who they think could potentially damage our company or jeopardize our own future, or be a complete pain in the cockpit. I know we need some pipelines for people not connected, but I respect my fellow pilots enough to know they want good people in the company that affects their financial futures.
