I replied, "The People's Republic of Wichita".
Yes they are out there.

PAX just seem to feel they have to say some of the dumbest things to the flight crews in passing. I make it a habit when I am a PAX to thank the FAs as I pass by any of them at the end of the flight and if a flight deck crew member is present while I am deplaning, I say thank you with a smile on my face. Just my way of letting them know I appreciate all of their efforts. A simple courteous Thank You can go a long ways in letting folks know you appreciate them and their efforts.

Had one drunk deplaning try and flick my nose. Yup, tried to play the "Got ya!" game. Stuck his finger in my chest and then when he expected me to look down, tried to flick my nose, but i was backing up into a fighting stance so all he got was air. The FA had a look of


And I think I almost gave myself an aneurysm overcoming the urge to stomp the living feces out of the DB. I guess I had my warface on, cause his buddies grabbed him and took off up the jetway.

Today's tool is the passenger that sees a flight attendant taking pictures, confronts her, takes down her name, finds her facebook profile, then relays that to the local news station.

Was he in paying customer contact?

Still tacky.

I commute to work with no tie and no hat and I wear a light jacket. However, I'm a tool so it's cool.

Well I'm sure people on the train were going to the airport. But he was in full uniform just wearing a baseball cap.

Saw that guy yapping on the news. He looked like a DICK stone, he also looked almost dead. Maybe he should retire from his retirement.
