The plight of the regional FO

Plight, not flight.

I told someone at dinner I was starting at TSA next month. 'Cool, do you know your route yet?' ROUTE. Like I'm a paperboy or milkman. That hurt my feelings.

I mean, those guys make *WAY* more money to start than I will.


Long story short: multiple people at Verizon cannot figure out the difference between $0.002 and .002 cents.

The rate at Verizon is evidently $0.002, but he was quoted .002 cents. You know, because they just don't get the difference.

The first number being .002 of a dollar. The guy in this recording acknowledges that .5 dollars is not equal to .5 cents but cannot figure out that .002 dollars is different from .002 cents.

And the USA isn't falling behind in math and science?

You REALLY gotta listen to this.

Maybe the guy should have gotten the rep to realize that .002 cents is equal to .00002 dollars.

If this happens to you, should ask for an engineer.

Blogger Beta

I bit the bullet and we're on the Blogger beta. You'll see one new feature: tags. Like this one I'll tag with beta and blogger. Gee whiz.

Seriously, in the future I'll tag my kid stuff with things like 'Aaron' and you can see what that little freak is up to.

Or I'll use 'freak' and then both kids' blog articles will both pop up.

Punk'd Telemarketer

Thanks Paula! This is HILL AIR EEE US! Audio recording of a guy punking a telemarketer.

Good advice for pilots

From a thread at

"Best advice given to me from a former chief pilot George Childers, God rest his soul, who flew DC6s all over the Pacific in the Navy, then flew for CAL, then was a Fed, then my boss...

...whenever there's new equipment on the property bid the old stuff."

Probably too true.
