Only an increase for those of us with only a 401K for retirement.

Southwest today.... was in A boarding, middle of pack. A commuting FO was ahead of us by 15 slots or so and grabbed the good exit row seat. I only noticed because the group of SEVEN one person ahead of us took took the seat next to him.... and another 2 rows of all exit rows. But not all 7 of them boarded at once... just 1 and then later the other 6 joined. I felt bad for the pilot, he had to deal with some jerks next to him. My friend and I got a whole row to ourselves though.

He's an overweight slob with an ill-fitting uniform (at least what you could see of it) that probably hasn't been dry cleaned in a year. As if wearing an insulated flannel jacket with your uniform in public isn't bad enough, it's also decrepit and makes him look like a damned hobo. Cptn Suave continues to wear said jacket all the way into the hotel lobby and check-in.

His F/O looked fairly professional in comparison sans the dark blue North Face type of fleece jacket he was wearing under his unbuttoned uniform blazer. You stay classy San Diego!
Can we start posting pics of these guys? I think it would make a great coffee table book.
