Back in the commuter days I had an relatively mature FO who wasn't dangerous or anything, just a little slower than most. One day this check airman, who had it in for the older guy, comes along for a ride, and in the middle of the flight berates my FO for not saying "thank you" to the controller after getting a clearance direct! The biggest loser, was of course, me, for never telling our chief pilot what a jerk this guy was.

The captain I flew with who stood up and peed in a bottle. He had bad aim and peed on the floor instead.

This guy wasn't a loser at all, but he was always interesting to fly with. He was a very fundamentalist Christian (Methodist myself) and he always felt compelled, even if he knew you, to evangalize on every flight.

I always admired his unwavering faith, but geez did it get old, and you know you would have felt bad if you told him to give it a rest, so you were kind of stuck nodding your head every few seconds.

Not me.
Start praying to Satan to make him stop. When he stops, ask him which God listens better.

so many losers, so little time...

1 - guy who organized with owner of company to fly FOR FREE and cost another guy his job because of it

2 - guy who causes $25 000 damage to belly and wing of B190 while low flying in Angola...then second guesses your actions during abnormal ops when he wasnt there

3 - younger, lower time captain who proceeds to regail you with tails of his exploits in 'much more difficult to fly' aircraft than he thinks youve flown

4 - CA's who dont know their flows, misses callouts that create um...situations, and then want to blame guess who...

5 - guy who tells everybody how he saved the day from the JUMPSEAT and how that crew should be glad he was on board...should have been knocked flat on his ass

I got one!

How about the tool that spends all his time on the cell phone instead of picking up clearances or running through his pre-flight duties. Then he preaches about how he's hoping to upgrade, but can't find the freakin' departure in the pubs, even though it's right there...

That would have to be me, back in the single-pilot days. What a freakin' tool!

Speaking of this, I had an ex-roommate who had a bad habit of ********************ting in the shower. I complained about this because it was nasty and clogged the drain. He said it was acceptable for guys to do and I was being a pansy. I moved out, so it's not a problem anymore, but I was curious just how widespread this is.
That would have depended on how many times he stepped in it to enjoy that squishy feeling between his toes.

I flew with an FO in the Northeast who wore Porsche driving gloves. After ridiculing him for nearly an hour he looked at me with a "serious" look and stated, "As a child my hands became frost bitten and I damaged them...the cold yoke makes them hurt if I hold onto it for to long". I replied...."why do you where them when your not flying ?". That ended the conversation.

Or better yet, how do you have a medical?

How about the one who accepts a flight after you turn it down because of weather...

I flew with a guy at Meridian, Ms on a Citation Bravo that would go into an fbo , use the restroom and never ever wash his hands and then would stand at the popcorn machine eating without using the scoop or bags provided !
