Center was laughing so hard he was having trouble answering us. I told the FO to please refrain from asking ATC ANY questions without consulting me first.

More like Noob. Maybe that 1500 hour rule is not such a bad idea.

Sorry of it was posted already, in that case, those that make double posts!
"Heavy" is to be used on ramp and ground... agree with you in cruise.

"heavy" is to be used on first contact with tower and approach/departure. Dont forget Canada, all the high sector controllers use it. If you use "heavy" while flying in ICN, PVG, HKG etc... then you might be "tool" worthy, everyone is heavy!

Aircraft swap in the middle of the trip, run off the jet to the other gate. Did I mention it's a thirty minute turn? Get to the new gate, fight my way politely down the jetway full of boarding passengers, step into the cockpit whose previous captain KNOWS its a thirty minute turn and I find the seat full down, rudder pedals forward to the stops, armrest adjusters zeroed out full down and the headset unplugged, cord wrapped tightly around the ear pads tied in a knot and stowed in a bin. Thanks for nothing.

Are you sure that everyone that you fly with in ICN, PVG, and HKG (etc) is heavy?

My tool of the day/month story...

The captain who was an FFDO who gave me a thorough military style tactical briefing once a day (for the entire month) on what was going to take place if Ahmed the terrorist attempted to breach the cockpit. He used terms like "2 shots, center-mass". It was so ridiculous.

I kept thinking "dude, we're flying an RJ, going from ORD-DSM....get real."
Wouldn't have happened to be A.R. from from the good ol' MAG now would it?

Of course not, he is just making a joke that all of us that fly out here understand, sorry if you missed it. He is just making fun of the fact that operating the 763ER at those airports, 80% of the time, I'm the smallest A/C in line for take off

I nominate Salon Inc. for throwing Patrick Smith and his" Ask The Pilot" column under the bus. Did anyone else follow his writings?

I don't know about you, but it takes a whole 4.5 seconds out of my day to adjust the seat...maybe another 20 seconds to get my headset out of my bag and plug it in
