Its funny how so many who post on here have such a low opinion of those they work with and their respective airlines but such high opinions of themselves. Perhaps those thinking everyone else is a tool should look in the mirror.

Oh jeeze sailing, lighten up The original poster even called himself a tool for starting the thread. It's just for fun. I have another one by the way:

The Captain I flew with when I was at my previous airline job that told me he had started "his own business". I said "oh what kind of business is it?" Then I ended up having to hear his entire lecture, including diagrams and demonstrations that was all part of a pyramid scheme (literally an hour!) on stickers that make pain go away, make you super strong, or have good dreams among other silly claims, while he tried to get me to not only buy them (for only about $50 for 4 stickers!!) but also become a seller too. Which, by the way, he did not come up with on his own, he simply "started his own business" by being sold into it by someone else (as those schemes go)

That usually shuts them down.
I usually say, "easy there Tonto, I wasn't talking about you...we stole this land fair and square!" That usually get the conversation going good...
