Man I thought I knew how to party with 12 hours to go before show time. This guy has me beat!

SEATTLE (AP) — An airline pilot accused of stealing a man's rental car during a bizarre encounter has been arrested.
The 43-year-old pilot from charter airline Omni Air was arrested Saturday night for investigation of vehicle theft and DUI, King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West said Monday.
A Bainbridge, Wash., man told police he got into his rental car at a hotel near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and a stranger climbed into the back seat. When the victim asked the stranger what he was doing in the car, the man replied, "You know, you know," West said.
The victim pointed a handgun at the intruder and told him to get out, officials said. After a scuffle in which the man struck the intruder several times with the handgun, West said the man got out and the intruder chased him around the car.
The intruder then jumped into the driver's seat and drove off, she said. Officers found the car and a bloody man in a nearby parking lot.
Jeff Crippen, president and CEO of Omni Air, told The Seattle Times he didn't have the full report but planned a thorough investigation. The name of the pilot was not released.
"We want to emphasize that the crewmember was off duty at the time of the incident and was not scheduled to report for duty for 12 hours," airline communications director Jeff Staton told the Associated Press by email. "The crewmember is currently on suspension while the facts are being investigated."
The pilot, from Tulsa, Okla., had been scheduled to fly to Tokyo on Sunday morning, West said. The flight was delayed 24 hours and took off Monday morning for Japan, said airport spokesman Perry Cooper.
Omni Air's Staton confirmed that a replacement crewmember handled the delayed flight.
The Federal Aviation Administration said it was investigating.

*He should be dead. Was probably so drunk the driver didn't feel the need to shoot. Who "stays" at a hotel with a rental car and carries a handgun?

Obviously " Layover 101 " courses are not taught in Omni Ground School...

Successful Layover Protocol

- Obtain "Mass Quantities" of beverage(s) commensurate w/ hours of Layover-Time-Til'-Duty.

- Abide by F.A.R / G.O.M and Common Sense.

- Sequester with Crew and/or Local Contacts in undisclosed camera free location.

- If unsuccessful with New Hire F/A's consider Local Contacts...Personal or Professional.

- When all else fails, guzzle remaining supplies, open window and throw money out, then slam window on both Big and Little Heads repeatedly.

- The end result should be the same in all cases...Painfully Broke, slight headache, some penile swelling, and a good story to tell with NO Law Enforcement Officials having been involved.

- Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Which was an excellent movie....If one isn't an illiterate pilot type, incapable of abstract thought.

The Key Factor:

- Abide by F.A.R / G.O.M and Common Sense.


Correctly, the movie shows us what happens when addiction takes over and the above goes out the window.

There are great thematic elements in this film.

Which is why it is being widely received by the public and has made enough Box Office in it's opening weekend to cover production.

Always!

A few Great Captains told me years ago:

" Boy, don't ever, EVER, leave yourself in an indefensible position! "

(Thanks Jack and JB if you're reading this....The Grasshopper paid attention.)

Stated in another post:

"Work Hard
Play Hard

Blur The Line
Do The Time"
