You sound like a joy to fly with. 4 whole words? The horror.

So literally like.... 90% of pilots are tools? Like everyone does that.

1) I do them to bubble trance played over my Bluetooth speaker.
2) instagram.
3) when it’s not on a selfie stick out the DV window it’s on a head strap
4) I ask ATC “what do you need” when they ask how fast I’m going.

I understand that part, he used ATL in his example which makes it obvious he’s just making up his scenario because ATL doesn’t have intersecting runways.

I don’t care about the number of words, but don’t they need to know your speed in order to figure out what they need and tell you that? Seems smarter to just answer the question rather than come back with another question. But, what do I know? ....... I monitor guard.

Clearly you missed the point. No surprise there. And I’m sure the controller wants to here that over and over. Four whole words times how many times a day? Yes you missed the point by a few hundred light years.

To avoid going postal, have your captains monitor the radio then. Problem solved for ya.

Just pull out a cup of soup, run the seat full aft, and in between slurps mumble hey can you get the radios for a bit. You can stretch that out for an hour or more if you're creative packing your lunch. Crackers with some sort of spread and a teeny tiny little TSA approved wooden spatula to spread it with can turn a light snack into a half-hour project, cold mic the whole time.

LAHSO isn’t just for intersecting runways. ATL has LAHSO hold lines near the end of some of their runways so they can legally cross aircraft at the end of the runway with landing traffic still on the runway. Not sure how often they use them, but they’re there.
