    That's true... The only issue I've ever seen unfold on a Tier 1 jumpseat was a captain stand in the forward galley and verbally berate (using all kinds of 4 letter and one particular 6 letter words) the gate agent for making us wait for the jetway to be attached to the airplane for about 5 minutes (when we were 20 minutes early). Pre cell phone video days or I'm sure one of the first class passengers would have put it on Youtube.

    Around the D.C. SFRA guard is a necessary evil. And the shenanigans do get old.

    However...

    My buddy and I went up to NY this weekend for a concert - it was only his second time in a GA plane. And some guard shenanigans started like a chain of barking dogs because someone did a cabin PA on the freq.

    It ran the gamut - workworkwork, some Quagmire, some other South Park character that he recognized (I didn't) and some other stuff.

    And he thought it was hilarious. I had to explain why this was not good form, but there was no doubting that he enjoyed it. So there was that.

    Terrific. Glad we are entertaining to non-pilots.

    I never play around on guard. That said, I firmly believe that if you call ops TWICE on guard you deserve to be made fun of because your first instinct when they don't answer is to make sure you have your own poo in a pile.

    Really any time something seems "off" I suspect it is me that is screwing up and double check everything. Has saved me much embarrassment, though I'm certainly not immune.

    Those types are A-holes and are too young/immature to be in that position...

    Ummm... they were way closer to 65 than 35.

    A special 1985 hire. So no.

    I treated it as a teachable moment, explaining how and why good radio discipline was important. Inane or not, it piqued his interest.

    Hence, "do not lose your temper."

    Mostly as it doesn't do anything other than make you look like a doofus.
