Back in the hiring frenzy of early 2001, we had three pilots in my major indoc class who all had a class start date with FEDEX coming up in exactly 2.5 weeks.
After the first week of rah rah company BS their minds were made up and during break, they went to a phone in the break room and called FEDEX HR and one by one on the same call, all three canceled their CJO/class date. A decision that they would obviously soon regret in less than 9 months.

I know a guy who was given a class date at a legacy airline, and so happened to receive the call while operating a turn into the city from where he commutes. He went up to the gate, left his ID and walked straight to his car and never looked back. This was more than a decade ago.

I've heard this before, sounds like a urban legend type story.

And that regional airline never bothered to find out where he went? Oh wait, they do know, they got a PRIA request. You mean no CP or management level reached out to that legacy carrier and informed them what he did? It's a small world. What that guy did would be an easy way to get fired at both the new legacy airline and the regional he worked at.

Im not saying I endorse doing this, geez. I think everyone in their right mind would agree that this was a stupid thing to do. I just thought it was an amusing story and I also happen to know that it’s true.

LOL! Def Urban legend Non sense. Heard it as well EXCEPT I was told it wasn’t the call from the legacy.

Guy finds out he just won the lottery and goes home 😂

I know a guy that accidentally shot his good friend and a well know Texas attorney, with a 28-gauge Perazzi shotgun while participating in a quail hunt on a ranch in Riviera, Texas. Rumor has it, he was the Vice President of the United States.

And they both lived to tell about it…
