The Captain who tells his FO how to respond when ATC asks what heading they're on.

Same deal for airspeed requests.

Oh, and the guy who responds with "whatchya need" instead of answering the question.

The pilots who tell me to look out the peep hole when I'm jumpseating to make sure it's the FA that I'm about to open up the door for. No sheet Sherlock

Fun on the radio and not a tool: supposedly one of our female pilots was told by atc "you are cleared for the visual if you can keep it tight" "nobody's complained so far"
I wasn't there, so this could just be urban legend.

Is that what guys are doing when I'm not looking?

No wonder I keep getting sick

Had I not been told about the account by 3 others that were present at the same interview, I wouldn't have believed it.

Why wouldn't you look out the peep hole? It's there in case the FA is being held at gun point, isn't it?

I remember watching someone doing that in a BMW and rear ending a Rolls that was sitting at a red light and for some reason Ricky Ricardo came to mind as I was smiling .
