IDIOTS IN SERVICE
This week, all our phones went dead and I had to call the phone
repair people. They promised to be out between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.
When I asked if they could give me a smaller time window,he asked
and I quote, "Would you like us to call before we come?"
He also requested that we report future outages by email. Does
YOUR email work without a telephone line??????
Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only
in tropical fish stores. (But of course!)
Those German controllers at Frankfurt Airport tend to be a
short-tempered lot. They not only expect pilots to know their
parking location but how to get there without any assistance.
So it was with some amusement that we (PanAm 747) listened
to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground and a
British Airways 747 (radio call Speedbird 206) after landing.
Speedbird 206: "Good morning Frankfurt. Speedbird 206 clear
Ground: "Good Morning. Taxi to your gate."
The British Airways 747 pulls onto the main taxiway and stops.
Ground: "Speedbird, do you know where you are going?"
Speedbird 206: "Stand by, ground. I'm looking up the gate
Ground (impatiently): "Speedbird 206, have you never flown to
Speedbird 206 (coolly), "Yes, in 1944. But I didn't stop."
