That dude who keeps calling his wife his "lovely bride." Bride ended after the wedding day, buddy. At most you could stretch it out to a year, but come on, you're annoying with that crap.

I just call her my roommate now since she doesn't cook, doesn't put out and takes money from my wallet.

TOD, you know 'em. You're driving in the left lane, you've got some spacing between you and the car in front of you; at most three car lengths, probably less, but you're not tailgating either. Right lane has traffic as well that the cars in the left lane are slowly, but surely over taking. So if I've hopefully created the scene accurately enough so you could basically say it's not rush hour, but you've got some traffic to deal with. Well, here comes a guy passing the car behind in as he moves from the left lane over into the right lane. This is the guy who treats a drive to the grocery store like the Daytona 500. You're on pace to over take the next car in the right lane, but Dale Jr just has to jet up to that car's bumper so he can fit into that space in front of you that gives him about one foot of clearance. Objective achieved: he'll get to Piggly Wiggly 4 seconds sooner. Only 12 more of those and you'll be almost one minute ahead of schedule.

D bags that like to pass from the back of the line/reverse seniority order whenever your lane is stuck. Reduces the ability of people to get out of a bum lane by like 95%. Tools.

While jump seating out of uniform (but in uniform pants and shoes, just not shirt) to work and having TSA treat you like a pax by removing my belt, all items from pockets oh and all liquids, creams and gels and then after questioning their authority, to be sent to the new full body scanner! The following week they claimed my electric razor looked like a gun then it looked like a taser, so they had to search the whole bag and test it for explosives! Next time I'm just traveling in uniform!!

The guy who showed up in his current airline uniform to interview with another prospective airline, and he didn't commute in because we saw him at breakfast this morning in the hotel prior to the interview.

It invariably turned into a discussion about whether not Olive Oyl was hot, and what she ever saw in Bluto, because we both agreed he was a real tool. So, we did in fact get a good laugh out of it. Although my time is all purely civilian, the Captain did have a military background and yet we were both clueless as to what the term meant. At least now I know.
Bluto (the cartoon, not the APC member ) the tool, LOL! Dude, that was freakin hilarious!
