The Captain and I emphasize CAPTAIN because he let us know about 20 times on the PA of AA1535 today from San Jose to Ohare who went into the most ridiculous details of the flight plan and route. Thank God I was able to get my earphones in to drown him out, but Iíve never heard anyone talk so much about points on the ground between Lake Taho and Sioux City. Shut up man.

I'm going to nominate the idiot mother in the terminal in DTW with her face in her phone crushing candy or booking face or whatever it is that idiots glue themselves to their phones for. She's completely oblivious to the rest of the world while her 2-3 year old plays at the end of a long moving walk way. Just about punted that poor kid when I came screaming off that thing trying to make my commute and he goes rolling across the exit ramp with his toy car!

Total moron! You need a license to drive a car, cut hair, give mani/pedis, sell real estate, etc., but NOTHING needed to breed/raise a child!

The TOTD goes to the pilot who posted this as his solution to punish any pilot who applied for a job while his airline was in negotiations.

1. Make a list of those said pilots and while still being professional non-threatening, mentor and explain to them that they will have to go above and beyond in their time at F9 to make up for their error in judgement. Most of all ensure that they understand and process the poor decision they made without using the “Scab” term. That term is reserved for a few elite and fungal members of society and should not be thrown around loosely.

2. Get another list of the guys that can prove their Job offer during this time and declined. Help anyone on that list get rehired and when they are at F9 they should not pay for their beers on any trips for their probationary year.

There are a few vocal souls at F9 that are really detracting from the strength of the group. I think we can all understand their frustrations, but using their logic, ANY who are hired during section 6 negotiations should not receive part of the ratification bonus because they have delayed the process by getting a job there.

It's short sighted, however tensions are high so it's a little understandable. In this age of activism it's easy to jump on the wagon without even thinking about why you're on it.
