Pretty much any blue streaker who decides to step all over you immediately after you request a ramp clearance from CLT. I've never seen such clockwork douchery in my life. Even the clt controllers have complained about it. I've been trying so hard never to say "br-wn streak" but I'm getting close.

Also whoever told the ground controller yesterday you had a pregnant woman in labor on board just to get a faster taxi clearance, I'm sooo sorry you got denied...

My favorite JFK controller is back. Just an unpleasant human.

Today at 0700, some helicopter calls and is ignored. Calls back again and the Tower angrily answers "stand by, I'll get to you when I can". Mind you, nobody has made a radio call for 10 seconds when the chopper called. There was a short line for 31L to takeoff, and not a whole lot of landings going on. So, (seemingly) a full minute goes and not a single radio call yet Mr. Controller must be very busy on his smart phone or something since he still hasn't answered the helicopter. Finally somebody else makes a radio call and the controller then calls the chopper back.

Turns out the chopper was trying to report a near miss with a drone, but proving his schwanze was bigger than the pilot's, the controller was obviously too busy to handle that. So he gets around to asking the helicopter pilot where the incident occurred. Man do I wish the chopper pilot would've answered "I'll get back to you when I have a chance..."

The people at a food cort, coffee shop, whatever that have their text alert on audible and full volume, continually getting text messages.

Meanwhile, they're staring at the phone the WHOLE TIME.

Good thing they have the alerter on and at full volume. Because they wouldn't know you were getting all those messages while staring at their phone.

The cell phone owner that has the ringer at full volume, than studies the phone to decide whether to answer it... the whole time the ringer going at full blast.

The senior UAL captain who threw an absolute hissy fit when served his crew meal (a special-order Indian crew meal) because it "wasn't spiced properly."

I was in the jump. I witnessed it myself. You'd have thought he'd been served swamp rat tartare.

And they answer it with "HELLO!!??!!??"

And it's someone they know, like caller ID didn't even exist.

And it's a on a crew van that left the hotel at 5am.....
