Couple days ago center asks a couple different crews to please monitor for an ELT.
Couple moments go by and one of them comes on and asks for the freq for the elt.
Now this is funny.

Crews who answer their phone and complain about being reassigned or getting their day rolled, and they want you to feel bad for them! Honestly, HOW long have you been working here? Do you even look at the caller ID? This is something you should have learned in the very beginning: Don't answer your phone!

Are you serious?! Where is this?

Even if I'm on RSV, calls ALWAYS go to voice mail.

I don't get the problem. If they call me on my day off, I just say "no". Next time I see the CP, I explain it was on my day off, and all is well.

Is this EFB mounted to the aircraft? The aircraft cabin is probably 50' long. The CRJ, EMB, and Q-400 are, anyways.

Take the EFB for a little stroll.

Bro- some of us get in trouble for answering the phone but not being "available"... No joke!

TOTD: CA who "doses off" through the climb and the cruise but snickers quiet laughs when the FO expresses concern that they're off course when cleared direct to the airport. CA: "Yeah but we're only like, a mile, off (course)..." Apparently in all his hard work, same CA couldn't wait anymore at the hotel to hold the elevator for "his" crew...

TOTD round 2: Trumping all of the crew's vocally expressed discontent, a CA who decides to board the 92 degree airplane, inop APU, no PCAir, in the stale humidity of an afternoon deep south heat wave. But once half of the passengers are boarded, he calls dispatch (rudely to put it lightly) to complain about the heat inside and announces intent to deplane. Never deplaned and left early, even though the temp hit 96 degrees.

eek

That's really unfortunate. What's the point of a day off if the company can still require you to work? I hope you guys get that corrected.

The captain who sleeps PHL - SFO, with a 1800 departure, then sleeps on the red eye back, 0100 EST departure, wakes up in the descent, and complains that I am doing 340 kts. I eventually said suck my dick, and we had a jumpseater.
