Used to have ramper that would "lip-marshall" the aircraft in. As you got close enough, if you watched close enough, you could see him mouthing "that's good, that's good", and you knew to stop. Arms kept moving the entire time.

He doesn't qualify, though, because he didn't know better.

So I'd like to nominate a certain newhire on the ER that felt (in 2007) that a black sweater with F/O epaulets outside really enhances the uniform.

The TSA "Officer" who scolded me this morning in FLL for putting the bowl after my crew luggage, upside down. "Not a big deal, but just so you know, it's rubber to rubber. The rubber side goes down on the belt, but next time..." Can't make this stuff up.

Yep, seen a bunch of those. They are actually practicing for the lumberjack olympics.

The guy that gives one or more "status" updates 30 minutes into cruise, on an early morning flight or red eye. Most of the time they repeat the exact same info as the pre-departure PA. If people can't figure out the remaining flight time or if the arrival is on time, let the ranchers deal with it. But doing anything other then a descent PA during sleepy time is redonculas. Only a TOOL overlooks that concept.

Ahhh good ol' DB, what a great guy! Love going over PTW flashing lights so his "henhouse could see the chicken" (no, I'm not making that up) so much fun on day 4 knowing you can't make it home!

Or how about at BC at ZW, writing up 50 of 50 seats on a CRJ200 at a outstation, because he can't make it home so he can save himself a night at a crappy $40 hotel to make it home, so why not ground the airplane out an outstation and make the company pay for it? Make sense right? Mi$n day anyone?


YAAAAAAAAA BUDDDYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!
