Was in BHM last week on a ron the following day got a shuttle ride to the airport with 2 SWA pilots. Could tell these guys were ex military from a 1000 feet. So I made the mistake of trying to be friendly start a conversation. I must tell you this was the most arrogant, stuck up crew I have ever had the misfortune of talking to.

Are all ex-military in love with themselfs. There were other people on the bus pax for the airlines and I was actually embarrassed talking to these guys by how much the loved themselves.

I've met alot of SWA guys and typically there all great friendly, easy to talk to and down to earth. I don't think I could last one day on the road never mind 4-5 days. How do you normal SWA guys handle these clowns for days on the road ?

I was in PHL last week and was sharing the bus with two SWA pilots. Could tell these guys were former Civ from a 100 yards. One had his shirt untucked, and the other was picking his nose. I tried to talk to them and they kept using the word Dude. They both were wearing backpacks!!! How do the Ex Mil guys put up with this? Do any ex Civ guys have any self respect?

Seriously, Is there any point to this thread? Can we learn anything from it? Did you just forget to log out?

What's wrong with picking your nose dude? Clear airways are happy airways.

Point being what makes a guy think so much of himself that he can't carry on a normal conversation without acting as if he is god's gift to the world. This is not the first ex Military SWA experience with an A$$ clown. In the past I have met more civ SWA pilots that are social friendly and don't look down on you then ex military.

Personally, I think that the airlines should fill their new-hire classes with ONLY military guys. Any left over slots can be filled by highly qualified civilian guys if the company can demonstrate a need.

I've flown with some great military pilots. Unfortunately, they couldn't really handle a civilian CRJ.

And yet you clicked on QUOTE and started typing.

Add irony to sarcasm, and you have a complete thread. :)

What leads you to that opinion? Your 2000 hours of experience?

Yeah, right. Can you give me any justification for your ignorant opinion that airline new hire classes should only have military pilots?

Oh and I like your "new math" Time to go back and take a refresher math course ..... son.

Dude, there's idiots in every segment of society, and you even starting a thread liked this over a percieved slight from a former mil guy puts you in that class. Thicken your skin douche. Maybe they were tired after a reduced rest turn, maybe they thought you smelled like ass after parting the red sea with your FA, maybe they thought you were gay in your pink suspenders, I don't know what they were thinking, but obviously they were right, cause you are an oversensitve pillowbiter who mistook 2 guys keeping to themselves as arrogance.

Capt Zman, How's SoHa. You need to come visit the new place. We'll go to the blue monkey. ER

P.S. If your initials aren't MZ I apologize.

Dying to see the new place. Haven't been to SoHey in quite awhile. Might be in town next week (Thurs), let's go the Blue Monkey and laugh at how you just used the word "pudknocker" in a sentence. Now that's funny.

P.S. What are you going to do with the bid?

MEM 11f 100% / MEM 30F 100%

I just got back from the blue monkey, hence the term pudknocker

I just changed it to something more biting
