Oh, it's a big deal alright. We'll see who's a tool when the zombies/commies/aliens/superviruses come!

I just came back from a long trip with a guy who only wanted to talk about two things;

1. Religion
2. Politics

I thought -everybody- knew those are the two subjects that are off limits in the cockpit...?

This guy's been around a long time, he's in his 60's, spent 20 years in the Navy and then 20 years at DL, he should know better.

Just sit over there and finish your crossword puzzle or suduko or what ever it is you were doing, before you got on your soapbox and started preaching. If you start talking about God again, I'm going to have to start talking about licking poosay again...and we know how that's going to end.

Then he waits until after you land and you are still doing over a 100kts and starts telling you to exit V2 join N and contact gnd on 121.7. Also he wants a immediate reply to the instructions all while you are trying to get the jet stopped and make the required PM cockpit calls. Really? he could not have told me on final plan a V2 exit from the RWY?

On a similar note I nominate my company's ops guy in MCO last night. Decides to call us asking for our out/off times while we are on the takeoff roll. Ignored, but thanks for the distraction, bro! Dude, company policy is for US to call YOU with the times once we're airborne and on the climbout. Kinda hard to relay an off time when you're not off the ground yet...

the tools here are the parents. Not the pilots, who made a good judgement call...I hope that's what you mean to say

You know, the ones that don't allow you to re-set the actual time (which is always wrong), and require a PhD in Astrophysics from MIT to figure out how to set the alarm.

(Thank God for my iPhone...)

Whew, I thought I was the only idiot who can't figure those things out! Thank God for my $5 target travel alarm clock.....
