Default Where did the pens go?

What’s the deal with no pens in the pen holders? No more charging cables to steal?

With the 3 and 4 leg days with multiple plane swaps I can no longer keep up with demand from my one pen per hotel stipend.

Side note, fat pens are not acceptable.

Pretty sure most pilots have a personal pen in their shirt. Plane pens are for emergencies only. Check your COM it’s in supplemental miscellaneous

There are only two types of pilots in this world. Pilots who put pens in airplanes and pilots who take pens from airplanes.

Green/white Hilton Bics = “ready to copy...”

Nah, our pens are all from La Quinta. Or the Red Lion.

Throw away the cap before putting it in the holder. It will never go missing.

Someone has a massive pen collection out there. I am always stocking the holder with hotel pens. Side note: I went to a pilot's house and saw many different individual toilet paper rolls. Must have been the dollar store.

Oh boy, 3 and 4 leg days. Well, I’m glad I have the seniority I have.

As far a the pens go, I think the mechanics probably take them idk.

But yeah I hate the fat ones that can’t even fit in the hole. The Boston park plaza and black Hilton ones are probably the best.
