Are you freaking kidding me? This morning a goofy-looking FO in GSP was pulling along his rollaboard at O Dark Thirty, and all I see are his sissy wheels lighting up all pretty like. Was a US Air Express guy...who flies there, PSA, Mesa, TSA? Never seen that before, except on some 8-year old kid's wheels on his skates. I felt embarrassed for him, he looked so stupid. It took all I could not to walk up and smack him...where do they find these tools?
This is not one of my b.s. threads either, really happened today.

Consider the source. Most of these door knobs should be flight attendants but they don't qualify so they become regional pilots. I hate my job!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw an older Delta pilot in ATL with them. I was hoping he was just pulling his FA's bag but he had his flight case strapped on to it.

Seriously people, flashing and spinning lights are for carnivals!

Why not? Whats wrong with a little fun? Why does everything have to be so serious, and why do you have to judge other people? Just move along if you dont like something.............

Who sells flashing wheels?

I'd love to have flashing wheels on the luggage while rolling through the airport on roller shoes... I could get to my flights faster and look good doing it.

What are you kidding, that guy has balls. I would have congratulated him on that if he was in fact a pilot and not a FA.

What is next, Heelys pilot shoes?
Yep. Give it time before you see guys rolling through the terminals. I won't be surprised when I see it.

I've seen some DAL guys with them on their bags.

While I agree those things look stupid one anyone's rollaboard, pax included, allow me to ask this: What the hell does it matter to you? Live and let live, man...





Now that I've got that outta the way...

Bob and Dan on The Ticket in DFW do a weekly bit called "Gay or Not Gay"...so I follow up with this question:

Light-up wheels on your rollaboard...Gay or Not Gay?

That would be scheduling's dream. Then they'd schedule your deadhead home (last flight of the night) even closer to your block in times saying, "well you had Heelys, you should be able to skate to your flight in time..."

I have seen a pilot in ORD, in uniform, with the heely, wheel-ies.

In uniform and busting a wheelie.
