Holy balls, of all the places I thought that post was gonna go, that was NOT one of them. I mean that's tragically stupid, but also solid gold as a story to have.

I guess the real check of his attitude would be by his reaction when you give him a set of Shuttle America plastic wings.

He says "Oh, so when are you due to upgrade?" I tell him probably another year. He says "I don't want this to sound douchey, but I'm in the prime of my career and making great money". I told him, while cracking a smile, yeah that's pretty douchey. He laughs.

He goes on to tell me United is hiring and that I should put my resume in because they'er a great company to work for. I'm trying to exit the conversation at this point because he obviously is completely out of touch with the regional world and out of the corner of my eye I see him reaching into his blazer.

He pulls out a pair of those United Junior Pilot gold wings and a 767 baseball type card that has the aircraft info on it. Then taps me on the shoulder and says "Here you go."

At this point I am at a complete loss for words and keep quite the rest of the flight. Now I don't know if he was ****ing with me or really that clueless. To this day I get a kick out of it and picture him passing wings out to other regional guys.

Youíre referring to the ones the company issued them to wear, right?

Dude,

Your post just reeks of complete bullsh*t. Donít believe that happened at all. I think youíre just mad st United for some reason, and this little yarn just makes you feel better. Consider yourself called out.

I nominate Inside Edition for getting Duke Silver out of retirement to fly a 737 simulator. He was there to show everyone what the Ethiopian pilots may have experienced right before they crashed.
