And I never wana hear "You-Noyted" again either.
As far as the numbers, so you prefer that your FO doesn't follow standard phraseology, eh?

Check on should be altitude only unless otherwise requested....
Plain English is fine. Plane English is obnoxious. Thanks for the heads-up on check-in protocol

Ever watch someone walk onto one that isn't moving? Ever been that person?
Never have and never will again.

I got my loud-neighbor payback by setting the alarm clock to get loud 5 minutes after I left my room for checkout at 5 AM. Then I leaned it up against the adjoining wall and leaned the bible up against the clock it give it some balls.

Then, right about the time the alarm went on, I called him on the house phone to give him his wake-up call. When he shot back that he didn't wand a wake-up call, I told him I didn't want one last night, either.

We agreed to disagree, as in I agreed and he didn't.

You've obviously never flown around the third world or non-radar in places where radios, english and tap water are all suspect. Enjoy the Sioux Falls overnight.

What about the poor schmuck in the room on the other side (or above and below you for that matter)?

1. Place alarm clock against offender's wall.

2. Build bomb stack with pillows.

Stopping on a moving walkway for 30 seconds will cost your journey the same amount of time as stopping in the middle of the hallway for 30 seconds; difference being that people can go around you if you stop in the middle of the hallway.
