I made it about 20 seconds as well. If you are one of those guys who does the PA from the galley, you sir are the TOTD.

I do it, but only when I'm cancelling the flight.

PA from the galley certainly does not make the TOTD.

Thinking it's a place to make an attempt at a stand-up comedy routine on the other hand...

I agree! Leave the comedic routine to the professionals.

Many passengers do like the pilots PA from the galley as it gives them the "warm and fuzzies" by putting a face to the person in control of the plane.

I've flown with that guy. It was a long 4 day trip
Also, he kept trying to buy me into his idea of making boat of money from Iraqi dinar from being revalued after the 2003 invasion.

As far as northface is concerned, XJT/ASA had a brief time when everyone had to turn in their blazers to have them restriped. We were told to wear any "professional looking black jacket" in lieu of the uniform blazer.

Well I finally watched this abomination after resisting because I don't like the creepy feeling I get when watching someone embarrass themselves. All I can say is we need a new thread for Tool of the Year. Does anyone know if this guy was a traffic cop in a former life? He sounds just like one with his knack for demanding answers to rhetorical questions. No offense to all you other former cops but I swear I've been pulled over by that guy in another life.
If also like to be on board with no compelling reason so I could ring my phone as loud as possible. I'd love to see him actually go back to the gate to kick me off. It would be worth it to see him go through with his threat. Because that's what your passengers want, to be threatened by the employee providing a service who's on a power trip.
Shyguy has it right when he says, "And then guys wonder why they can't get a straight flow to mainline." QFT

We talking about the same guy here? One of his initials is an H? That was the longest four day of my life too, not because of the dinar thing but because he was just an terrible person to fly with.

As for my tool of the day nod, I get in the plane last night. Check the can and someone wrote up the lack of a liner in the galley trash bin.
