Shirley, you don't mean the guy that put that in jest, with a big to make sure?

Did you call him on it, or just run to this forum to make a double nomination for TOD?

Can I nominate a policy? If so I nominate DL policy for having flight attendants push credit cards the entire flight. Red eye(LAX-TPA), Capt. says on taxi "last pa tonight so you all can get sleep" Flight attendants pushed the credit cards once during boarding, once on taxi out, 3 times in cruise, once on descent, and once on taxing in, and those are long pa's. I doubt at 3 am you will get many if any takers, just shut up and look at your kitty magazines, as you will be home soon enough to spoon with precious.

You're several pages behind. Try to keep up. This is a very dynamic, active thread. Turns out there are lots of tools to cover.

Next!

Me ---- TOOL NAZI.

Samballs, twice.

For deleting the old avatar, and for replacing it with this one.

Here's how I know this thread is catching on: Guard Nazi keys on, followed by a brief, but distinct, "TOOL!".

APC - Changing the world, one tool at a time.

A disproportionate number of "Tools" seem to be smokers. They cant sit still, and always HAVE to be doing something, regardless if it's the correct thing to do, or even if it isn't their job.

Flying with one particular tool one night, he was the PF on the first leg, wanted to change frequencies on the radio, turn off the lights at 10,000 (company policy is 18,000, I had to reach up and turn them back on). When we got to the overnight, he loudly announced the flight number for TOMORROW's flight, and began entering it into the clock (I refrained from entering it in my side). As it was, the next morning, we didn't even keep the airplane, so he still had to reenter the flight number in the new airplane. Taxiing out the next morning, my leg, I had set the heading bug to runway heading. He promptly spun it to some other heading, and said "They're going to give us that heading after takeoff," even though that was never part of the clearance. I spun it back to runway heading, and said "I'll just leave it there until they give us something else, thanks." As it was, we were just given runway heading after takeoff. Tool.

Another of my favorite tools is the "I'm going to be the captain of every airplane on the ramp" tool.

Landed in Des Moines one winter day, as we were deplaning, suddenly the skies opened up with freezing rain. The airplane quickly became an ice cube. I told the station to hold boarding until things calmed down a little bit, so naturally we were a little delayed. Finally, the precip turned into light snow. We began boarding, and then deiced. As it was still snowing, I asked for Type 1 and 4. Sometime during the Type 4 process, the snow stopped, right about the time the next inbound flight landed, but because we were still at the gate, they had to wait for us to finish. Inbound captain loudly complained on ops frequency, wanting to know why we were deicing when there was no precipitation coming down. Tell ya what, chief, I'll be the captain of my airplane, you be the captain of yours, m'kay? Tool.
