But, the comment was not necessarily a personal attack. It very well could just be poor intrapersonal skills and is not unique to one airline or pilot group.
Are you kidding me?! How in the hell can you even begin to defend the idiot's insulting comments?! Seriously?!

I'm not all touchy-feely sensitive, but that guy deserved a punch in the face leading to a broken nose so people could make fun of his red face. Tool of the century if you ask me!

The captain, looked at me in total disgust and didn't even say hi back. They boarded, I ended up with the jump so again i introduced myself, ask politely if it is okay and hand the captain all of the paperwork. He goes on to breif me on their cockpit, when he gets to the escape hatch he points at it and says "grab the handle, the red one, like your face..." No more words were shared until we are about to descend and the FO turns around to ask what I fly. "A 402." To which he responds, "I don't know what that is, I'm not general aviation, I;m Navy. Is that like a King Air?" The best part: I don't think that they even get it. I'll be riding any other airline out of here. I'd rather rent a car and drive three hours than ever deal with that sh$t again.""
A good response would have been, " its a small plane that pays me double what you make, and I didn't even have to suck D.P's d***."

Read earlier comments. I do not condone that type of behavior. I do not think personal attacks are cool.

However, I have been around long enough to know that each and every one of us has had a moment of weakness in which we may have said or done something that was unprofessional, out of character, rude, immature, etc. So, no, I am not taken aback. I understand that human beings deal with all kinds of things in their personal and professional lives and it is difficult to separate the two sometimes. I am honest with myself enough to admit that I am not righteous in this regard. Are you?

So, given the choice to accept that a person is dealing with personal issues and inadvertently (or purposely) takes it out on me in a moment of weakness and then turn the other cheek in a mature and adult manner, or to punch someone in the face and then have to deal with all the consequences associated with that incredibly immature action, I choose the former.

Seriously? I've never seen THAT one, but have seen gym (or 'roid) rats cut their short sleeves at the bottoms to give their biceps room.

I just saw it last week. I don't know if it's a gay thing but it's definitely a tool thing.

I know of a guy who used to wear a thug life lanyard and would tighten/tuck his sleeves in tighter to show off his muscle's when passengers are deplaning.
