I turn the volume up on the speaker. Raises the captain's blood pressure thereby quickening my seniority advancement.

Very entertaining, though this Skygod, definitely from the land of corned beef on white bread and mayonnaise, needed to be reminded to lighten up and remember that he was no longer in Kansas.

To which Captain Skygod’s response was, All my F/O and myself could say is WOW! Good luck to you Captain Skygod where ever you may be and be sure to win friends and influence others with that attitude.
Had I been the controller, my next transmission would have been

Captain Skygod, Chennai TMU is now issuing flow control instructions. Advise when ready to copy holding instructions.

Chennai information merely VHF version of Chennai Radio which is HF, used for position reports, PIREPS and requests for different altitudes. At best the radio operator on the ground could have done is requested the pilot's name. But at the end of the day, all he needs to do is contact the DGCA who would in turn contact QATAR to lodge a complaint against the PIC for such rudeness.

Dude, if you want to make us captains clear out of your seat sooner than later, you need to buy copious amounts of beer, french fries, and cardiac-burgers on layovers, and bring some nice cigars too. Then take us out for a blow-a-lung run the next morning.

Never worked for me as an F/O but it sure was worth a try.
