He wouldn't have to ask me ... I'd already be moving the other direction.

Please tell me his shoes are newer than most pilots.

I think I'd feel very awkward sitting there.

It is completely creepy. My solution was to "forget" the trash bag and conveniently get up to get the bag when the festivities began. Thank god for silly FO duties....

Not exactly a Tool thing, but just an irritating terms:
  • "breads and cheeses."
  • "fresh fish."
  • "authentic Italian."

I'll use them in sentences:

Annoying flight attendant: "The Captain bought some breads and cheeses and we put out a spread in the hotel crew room and drank wine..." or "Who wants to get the breads and cheeses?" I believe it's correct to say breads and cheeses, it just sounds so pretentious.

Again, the flight attendant speaking on the van at 11pm at night: "Excuse me van driver, do you know where I can get some FRESH fish? I really just want some FRESH FISH. It's hard to find a place with good FRESH fish." How do you know it's fresh?

Lastly: "We need to find some authentic Italian. Excuse me van driver, is there an authentic Italian place around here?" When you're walking around Milan looking for authentic Italian... well... they're all authentic to me at that point.

Again not Tools, just annoying terms.

When it does not smell like fish.

Well, not over the radio, but if I can't use "double o- seven" or "thirty aught six" during my checklist responses I just don't know if this career is for me.

Anyone that ends ANY transmission with a long drawn out: "Seeeeee Yaaaa." These folks are definitely tools. Pilots do not have the market cornered, controllers have their fair share.
