I’m not denying any of that. But back to the original topic, we’re taking about apologizing to a fellow passenger for the actions of a fellow pilot. I don’t think that’s wrong. What did you guys do about this in the days of yore

I still have my DC-6-7 note book with all my flt plans between cities, fuel loads, pref. alts, fuel burn (3&4 engine) alt fuel, etc. Flt plan A/S was 235 for the "6", 257 for the "7".CV- 440 - 200 + your alt. Everybody else went to breakfast, you did the flt. plan. Those were the days.............

Too old to remember.. Oh yeah... no Starbucks in the day. Damn them... they’re responsible for abhorrent behavior by those in uniform! And lets not forget Samsonite, the original luggage maker who, pardon the pun, rolled out the Roll-a-Board too!

This next “Tool of the day” award is a group effort that is ongoing. This one goes out to Delta and Spirit flight attendants...

Almost everytime I get on a full employee bus. One (or two) of the aforementioned flight attendants will have her rollerbored underneath the baggage stow area with the handle bar raised (along with all their kit bags still attached). Doesn’t seems like much of a big deal but with their handle bar raised and the top of the shelf only a few inches above the handle bar it blocks anyone from trying to put their luggage in the middle shelf.

It would be nice if they wernt so lazy and put their handle bar down on their roller board. But I guess that would mean they wouldn’t actually have to take smaller bags off from resting on their handle bar in order to do so. And since they are so entitled and won’t quit blocking the shelf, every time I see them do that I purposefully hit their handle bar when putting my luggage on the shelf and say “sorry your handle bars in the way.” Maybe someday they will learn.

Or worse they leave their roller board on the floor beneath the shelf and they fall on you when the bus takes a corner. Secure your freaken bags. If they are too heavy for you to lift them up, pack lighter.

Or YOU could push her button, lower the bar the 2" needed to clear the shelf. Her smaller bag would stay put. Once your bags were on the shelf (if you're a gentleman ) YOU could snap her handle back up.

If you're not (the most probable), the handle would extend as soon as she grabs it. Either way your "Tool" nomination appears to have rebounded.
