    I wouldn't hire somebody like that, myself. Shows they have no spirit. ;9

    Or they're -exceptionally- good at not getting caught.

    My ex called me cold and emotionless once. Perhaps she's onto something.

    TBQH, the parking tickets in college I had all made me laugh. I was actually issued one while inside renewing my permit.

    If I could get halfway through the semester without getting a parking ticket it was cheaper to get and pay the first ticket and then go buy the permit, as they lowered the price of the permit during the semester.

    The attendants checked permits in the same pattern at the same time every day.

    Aaaanarchy, don't know what it means but I love it.

    Do you hold yourself above those who fly turboprops?
    (Not sure if that was your intention with this comment, but it definitely comes off that way.)

    I think the sarcastic intention was that if jeeeeettttt IOE was difficult good luck with a less automated older design. But I could be wrong.

    @FL350 , AutoThrust flew an equally as challenging prop...and, as I'm currently flying the Q400, I can tell you it's infinitely more difficult to fly than the 170/175. It just is.

    I'm sort of bummed I haven't gotten my grubby mits on a Q400 (possibly, yet—never say never, this is a weird business—can I wear a bow tie?), because it really does look like a cool airplane.

    Far from it.

    The Brasilia, and her contemporaries are a challenge, although they do not require anything more than average ability to corral (I mean, that's the certification basis).

    The E-jet is the easiest airliner I've ever flown.

    :cool:

    The hardest airplane I ever had to learn to fly? - Brasillia.
    The easiest airplane I ever had to learn to fly? - 757/767

    She's was a handful. Loved that airplane, though.

    I've read some of what pilots have said about the Q, and my roommate flies it. Some of the stuff I've heard all I can think is "WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA?!"

    Sounds like a handful.

    @SurferLucas i know he flew turbo prop before. I inferred that he was saying he was saying there was something wrong with flying turboprop.

    Makes sense now as to what he was saying.

    Thanks for clarifying @Autothrust Blue

    One of the things I heard coming up through the ranks from mentors was that the bigger they get, the easier they are to fly.

    College parking is basically evil. Sometimes I think they make it that way to simply get people used to bureaucracy.

    IMHO the entire point of matriculation into college is to teach students to navigate large, inefficient bureaucracies.
