Why are people so quick to jump at each others throats in here? Some of you are about as vexatious as ex-spouses.
Thanks Man.

Then I guess you can put me down as another piece of misrepresenting scum because it would be exhausting to correct every passenger, cashier, Starbucks barista, Subway sandwich artist, van driver, gate agent, hotel staff, hotel guest, aircraft cleaner, caterer and ramper who see stripes on someone's sleeve and toss out a friendly "Morning Cap'!" or "How you doin' today Cap'?"
Right, because unlike any of those examples you stated it is perfectly normal for an FO to let another pilot call them Captain. You must have been one of those FO assistant Chief pilot tools that thought everyone should address them as Sir.

Thank you to 4Runner and Joachim for their interesting stories and yes they are good stories. The tools are the people attacking them. Oh no, he worked for Norwegian. Get over it.

I can also sympathize with the logbooks 2 continents away and getting called up out of the blue with short notice. As for the job fair FOs, I must say when I did the job fair rounds, it was the FOs that seemed to have an air of smugness to them. The CAs at job fairs were cool. But the FOs, quite a few reeked as “look at me, I made it here, let’s see if you’re worthy......”

That's stupidity, not politics. It does not count

Still find it weird that you would address someone as "captain" who did not introduce themself as such. If that makes me the weirdo toolbag, then so be it. I've been called worse by better.

Its called respect and it is a professional title. Its also earned. I think its weird that someone would call from a company, identify themselves as from the CPs office, and not correct me. Then call me suspicious in an arrogant tone. Maybe nurses can start promoting themselves to doctor and replace that valve I need taken care of. A previous poster said it well when they described smug FOs prancing around job fairs with an air of superiority while the Captains are chill and humble. Ze best were the Gulfstream FOs in fitted shirts at S FL job fairs in the mid 2000s.

I would be dead. We're all going to be dead in 10 years? Holy crap! If you cared so much, you wouldn't make a living burning copious amounts of fossil fuel.
