My soon to be ex boss.

Tell him I have an offer, but am willing to see what they can offer (work for oil company).

Get an earful about how I'm making the biggest mistake of my life, not even knowing what job I was offered, where, or for how much money.

Then he cancels my 3 weeks paid time off that I already had in, pre other offer, that I was going to go to Higher Power and get my 737 type with.

I guess he just made that choice for me.

Could this be the event horizon for toolishness?

Now, you probably don't want to carry your Regional title when you move on to the Majors, but when you earn the fourth stripe at your current employer, you earn the right to be addressed as "Captain".

In the case of a scab like Mr. Green, that theory might not apply.
The department head at my college was a retired TWA captain... he didn't ask us to call him Captain Brewer, but everyone did anyways. He was a great guy and a great mentor. SOme people called him Dr. Brewer too, but never Mister. He would've been fine with any one of them, which is why I think it's ok to call him Captain. He deserved it.

Even though we have annointed Captain Jim Green as the Infinitesimal Tool of Eternity you know there is a Super Premium Infinitesimal Tool of Eternity out there just waiting for his 15 minutes of fame.

Default Etymology of "Tool"

After 507 pages, it's pretty clear how the term is used. But what's the original metaphor?

Seriously? I'll give you hints.

1) Can be useful when "instrument" flying
2) Richard might be a tool
3) What else do junior high kids and their mental equivalent talk about?
4) OPP
5) Definition 2d here. Tool - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
