Here's to the tool bag who stole my sunglasses out of the crew room lost and found. The crew who was nice enough to bring them to the lost and found notified me of their return (thank you); but alas, douche-baggery prevailed and some @hole swooped in within 24 hours of my return and stole them.

That is ridiculous and infuriating! Sorry.....


My totd is the ***** pax on my commute flight home today who proceeded to thumb her nose at complying with the rules of bag stowage to the point of confronting the poor FA in the front of the a/c. Glad the FA didn't back down and the pilots backed her up. I was the last one off the plane since I wanted to see if the FA wanted my contact info in case she needed a witness. (this ***** pax was seated next to me, of course...)

She changed her tune when she was detained on the plane before she got off and saw the FO who looked like a Marine Corp drill sergeant. He didn't look amused and I'm sure he ripped her a new one.

Kudos for backing up your crew, sir!

If you clip you ID badge to the outer most edge of your epaulet, you might be a tool.

The Piedmont pilot the other day who was horsing around on guard and then forgot to switch back to comm 1 to answer a radio call and had center call him out on it. Got a good chuckle.

Nah, clipping it on your belt is.

My nomination today is a Skywest pilot today who bumped me from the JS as I was trying to commute to work. Now normally I understand these situations, people get bumped all the time and the plane was her own equipment. To be completely fair she had all the right for that seat. Thats was all fine and dandy until she saw me standing at the gate and asked me if I listed. I said yes, I'm trying to go to work. I'm in uniform, she's not and she's also dragging two rollaboards. She looks at me and says "sorry I have an engagement party to go to" and then cheerfully informs me of the other flights that day that really don't get me to my sign in time. I couldn't believe it, absolutely incredible. What comes around goes around.

So let me get this straight....

-There were no other seats except for the one jumpseat?
-There were two pilots for the Skywest jumpseat, you, and the other SkyWest pilot?
-You actually believe that your choice of residence should actually give you some sort of implicit priority for the SkyWest jumpseat over another SkyWest pilot?

Hopefully you can clear this up.
