Funny you should ask. I think it may have just happened yesterday. I was standing at an empty gate, looking at open time on the computer. An old woman came up to me and asked me if I knew where there was an ATM that would take (insert bank name) cards. I said, I'm sorry, I don't know, you may look in the food court, most ATMs will take other bank ATMs for a small surcharge.
She then launched into a long-winded story about how an ATM wouldn't take her card and that she really needed one from her bank. Did I know where one was?! I said no, I do not. She seemed kind of disgusted as she walked away.
For some reason, when you wear a pilot uniform, people think you have an encyclopedic knowledge about everything that goes on at the airport.
This morning I had somebody ask me if I was ever going to fly "commercial" after my GF told her I was an airline pilot.
I think people brain lock as soon as they hear you're a pilot, much like they do when they set foot in an airport or on a plane.
While doing a Single engine taxi in BOS (BE1900) a few years back a passenger came up asking if we knew the left engine wasn't running. I was new so I thought it was funny but the Captain wasn't as amused.
Here's a stupid question a pax asked the FA: I went to the lav, so the FA goes into the flightdeck. I go back in and the FA comes out. The pax asked the FA if he was flying the plane while I was in the lav
After looking at the solar reflective stuff we put up on the windshield to keep it from broiling a woman asked, "Did you guys fly here like that?" Her husband just started shaking his head and looking down got off the airplane as quickly as possible. I told her it helped us to keep up our instrument proficiency.
