While you have to be kidding, that sure is a random thing to say.

Pics or it didn't happen. But if it did, we need pics.

I think I mis-typed. I was referring to the Elites who think they don't have to follow the rules concerning electronic devices and other FAA regs ALL pax need to follow.
The other day we diverted to Key West instead of going to Miami. The captain made several announcements and the flight attendants did as well. Once we were on the ground the passengers starting asking why we were in Key West......TOOLS!

I give the HVCs the same smile and "Welcome aboard" as the rest of the unwashed rabble. Having said that...

I don't have any of those nice things. I guess that HVC money isn't filtering down to my level.

I treat all customers with the same level of respect, as I do with everyone I meet in life. If it's not good enough for the HVC's, sounds like they have a bit of a problem.

As far as TOTD, on the commute flight we were 5 minutes late and were waiting for a jetway driver. The pax started chanting "Let us off!" in unison. I felt like I was at a high school pep rally minus the cheerleaders. Or the beginning of the "Occupy the Commuter Ramp" movement, your choice.

New nominee, not flight ops related.

Since getting furloughed I have started a new career as a quality analyst on Army aviation and missile systems. As I was reading this thread, my boss walked up to my desk, farted, and left. Didn't say a word in the process. Well done, however I must ratchet this a little higher.

This was of course after assigning me a safety of flight related task that is going to have me drinking heavily for the next few weeks. God I miss the cockpit.....

TOTD nominee.

I'm standing behind the gate kiosk looking at the weather for the flight. Passenger with bluetooth ear device stomps up to gate and says in a demanding tone "I need a seat assignment". I politely tell them the gate agent will be back in a minute to take care of that request. He replies with a gruff sigh and says "Why the hell can't you do it?". He then stomps away.
