I tell them that the Company thinks I'm safer back here.

I can hear it now in Forrest Gump voice! Perfect! Absolutely perfect!

I have tears running down my face from laughing so hard at these! I can only hope to someday have occasion to use one of these in such a situation.

Thank you gentlemen, well played!

Or, if you don't like the answer you know you're going to get, don't ask the question.
I have to keep telling my wife that!

Waiting for a hotel van and two guys from Delta also waiting. I asked where they're from, and one kind of gives me the hairy eyeball and says "Delta".

PS I have a lot of Delta buds who thought that guy was a tool too.

You should have asked him which is the closest galaxy to his planet Delta is located.

Maybe he's talking about the Mississippi Delta?

He might have met a celebrity from Swamp People!

If you commute and wear the 'commuter jacket' (North Face, Columbia, golf windbreaker) it matches great with the white shirt and black tie. Just tell then this:

Passenger: "Are you a Pilot?"

Me: "No, I sell Bibles for a living"

Passenger: "Oh"

Me: "Wanna buy a Bible?"

Passenger: "Ummmm.....no"

Me: "OK"

/End conversation



Works great everytime, all the time

This may not qualify for "tool" status but it bugs the sh$t outta me: The jumpseater who comes down before boarding then proceeds to stand over us while playing 20 questions while we preflight, load fms, run checklists etc... Just ask for a ride then get out of the way. Why is this hard?
