But a smitty, or jonesy or Tex wouldn’t bother me. Even if Tex is from Detroit
What about “Chugger”? We had a QCQ (quarterly recurrent) where our flight ops VP introduced one of our Mad Dog Captains to explain an inflight emergency he encountered, and he introduced him by his callsign....Chugger. I cringed a little. I agree that Smiley or Smitty, whatever, isn’t bad, but how do you earn the callsign of Chugger?

I still cheer for Chugger every time I start a QCQ. Oh please, Chugger... won't you tell us a story??

I think tool of the century may be accurate. That’s just embarrassing.
