...the Airways captain walking through Philly with his sunglasses on and talking on his huge bluetooth device.

The slobs who saunter through the terminal with their ties undone and their shoes looking like they haven't been polished EVER.

the bluetooth ear piece is a clear tool indicator. You could be a great guy, but once you put that thing in, you have a giant tool hole to dig out of.

Great segue NWAF16! What ever happened to the "Tool of the Year" award winning US Air Pilot, also being an FFDO, that discharged his weapon in the cockpit in PHL?

Yeah, I guess you could easily replace "some" with "most", but I was being nice cause I'm based in ATL now...bless their hearts.

Not sure if he's a tool, but I guarantee you I'll be out before him in a fire lol.

There are a few that do that. I have seen two in the last few years. Ugh.....

Passenger Tools:

The Pax that put their carryons in the overhead above 1a even though they are first on and sitting in 39E. Now everyone in front has to put their carryons in the back and try to go against the flow when deboarding.

the pax that ask (when I am deadheading) how I am flying the airplane from back there.

The pax that tell you that you can't be on a wx hold because cousin billy says the wx is good.

The pax that throw a fit when you jump the line at TSA

Definition of a Tool......I was giving a check ride on an international flight to a captain a month or two after 9/11. His briefing to the very senior F/As consisted of 20 minutes of how to disable a perp. Which include how to take a pen, pierce the eyeball and rotate it counter clockwise (never explained why the direction). Or how to pierce the torso between the ribs with any number of devices found on the airplane. Never did get to the important parts of the flight, wx, time etc.

So was I the tool to let this idiot (tool) continue or was it so off the charts, I wasn't believing what I was hearing?

The pax that took my bag out of the overhead bin so he could put his in, then mine wouldn't fit back in... and walked off.
