Or you could assume she eats deep-water dolphins. I'd have some ready for her at the next BBQ.

Ok weird, I think I just met this guy at PWK Signature. I'm sitting at the desk paying for fuel, and he walks in going "da da da-da-la-la-ta-da-da" like circus music while he walks up to the desk girl. Next thing out of his mouth to the desk girl was " Happy Easter how's your kiester" (It was the day before Easter). Then we talk to him for a little bit and he pulls out the pride and joy card. Has to be the same guy, who carries that around with them? Probably 58 years old, kinda short, flying a CE-550 out of somewhere in MI.

"Whatever happened to three cups or whatever his nickname"

Ohh wow! Forgot about that guy! His OCD was so bad he would freak if the fuel burn was marginally off the Flight Plan, I think he also told me he was military, yah Civil Air Patrol chapter.

Of course I was a tool when I ditched the typical Texas Sugerland 40 yr old divorced religiously fanatical flight attendant that wanted to mother the F/O and I on the overnight almost every time.

The guy the gets to the runway and informs ATC they "need another 30 seconds or minute". Not related to the flight attendants or an engine runup after a deice. No mister airline pilot genius, you thought you were going to be a fuel saving company man and start two at the last minute. Wrong.......while you wait your 45 seconds on the runway(like a douche, not a BOSS), every other aircraft behind you burns fuel for an additional 45 seconds. Guess what? Most of the aircraft behind you are in your colors, so in you infinite wisdom your screwing the company royally. Just keep starting number two at the last minute, you don't have the insight to quantify your own stupidity.

I got two.

The first was one night in JFK, typical 3 hour taxi, aircraft cleared into position. FO requests 2 min to start the engine. Tools. But tower took care of them, he spent that 2 min laying into that airline. He could have kicked them out of line but he wanted to yell. And I mean he let them have it... then cleared for takeoff. It was funny, we were all laughing.

Second, how about the pilot that demands a TSA superviser when the TSA woman behind the scanner asks to see his ID. She's in the wrong btw, once checked youre supposedly good. But it only takes a moment to flash the id, is it worth the scene?

Yeah yelling (or even passive agressive d-baggyness) to ATC or TSA is a very poor investment to make. While it may make someone feel good on any given day, it makes things that much harder for the rest of us long term. Check the rage at the parking lot/hotel checkout Darth Grumpy. As dumb as whatever they're saying or doing may be, lashing out only brings it back to us 10 fold.
