Tool of the day
 
I will nominate myself as the first for starting this. A very close 2nd goes to the compass capt. (we will call him Bob) who gave his cheesy welcome aboard PA from the cabin(I know they want them to do that, but most don't) Besides mentioning the current weather in Msp, he let everyone know what the temps were 3 days ago. It gets better though. He mentioned that he was going to "allow" FO Joe to fly this leg and what an outstanding co-pilot he is and how someday when he earns enough time, he to will be a compass capt. So, to you Bob I award you the tool of the day award. Who's next?

My landing today was so bad the pax asked if the wheels were square. I'm a tool too.:):)

Personally, I enjoy the captain informing all of us which STAR we are filed for.

[please note the sarcasm] :D

The TSA agent in LGA who insists on looking at my ID for the tenth time. She just doesn't trust the last nine government agents that looked at it. Tool of the day.

GA Tool
 
Guy in my SIDA access class wearing leather jacket, epaulets, and "Capt. Joe Shmo, DDS" embroidered on the breast - other side was a pair of wings. "N" number and "C-172" were also stitched. Wearing mirrored sunglasses as well.

The captain who blows one of those train whistles and says, "All aboard!" at the end of his pax brief. Yes. I've heard it.

I like when they shine the black light on the ID. I asked one what she was looking for when they do that. The response, "I really dont know, we just do it to look official."

The TSA agent in MSN that asked to see a 2nd form of government issued ID going through security because my crew badge was not good enough.

Anyone who wears their uniform in public. (unless they are working)

It is actually *required per the cpz manual. Anyway it isn't as common as it used to be before the sale to TSH. Every airline has tools, mainline brands included. I'm sure you had the balls to tell him that you thought his PA was cheesy.
