Next time, take them up on it and put the bags in the "special freight elevator" (dark corner in the lobby of your choice) then happily accept the tip.

Has anyone waited in the jetway until you closed the door, then waved goodbye to you as you pushed back?

Untool of the day:

Taxiing out of ATL last night, I changed radio 2 to guard and selected radio 1 for ground, but didn't change the transmitter from 2...

Me- "Ground Delta xxx D short of G with P...."

Voice- ONNNN GUAAARD!!!

Me- "Doh..." (changes xmitter)

Me- "Ground, blah blah blah"

Same Voice- OOONNNN GUAAARD!!!

(I frantically look down and try to figure out the problem"

Same Voice- "kidding, Delta xxx, Atlanta Ground, taxi runway 8R via taxi G and E, verify you have ATIS P"

Me- (read it back while half way laughing still) "What, you didn't hear that i have P on guard?"




.. that was a good one.

When flying with one of these tools, it is helpful to tune 123.45 instead of 121.5... oops! Did I do that?
