Have you seen the programming on history and discovery channel lately? Nothing but reality trash there as well.

Ah that sucks
I grew up watching stuff like that and learning interesting things. Now TV has turned to absolute trash. Crap like MTV playing a show called teenage mom. Seriously?

That is exactly my feeling about what we do for work. My friends and sisters donít understand why I donít boast about what I do for a living. If it comes up in conversation with someone I donít know, I say I travel for work, if itís pertinent to the discussion.

To some, itís their entire identity.

No, because that's actually music and in itself like an art form. I can appreciate music throughout history. But come on, you can't think something like 'teenage mom' is a good show.

Based on my observations at the airlines, women and minorities get the interviews first. Not necessarily the job. But the interviews.
Interviews lead to the job.

Side note......I kinda love that the SkyWest dude got sent home right away.
I was secretly hoping the Skywest dude would hang out with DAL guy a bunch and then ask for a LOR at Delta.

I flew with the SKW guy, actually great dude, very nice and humble. He progressed far and fast, at a young age. The TV thing was just a lark for him.
