Day 11

Day 11 - A picture of something you hate

I agree with Brittney over at Life in a Holding Pattern that the 30-day Challenge is getting more difficult! Hate IS a strong word. I've already told you that I hate lima beans and I really dislike fish so I've been trying to come up with something other than that to tell you about.

I hate when some other show (usually a sporting event) runs over and the DVR only records half of the Amazing Race.

I'm fairly certain that I hate crew scheduling. Or crew planning. Or whomever thinks it's safe or healthy for pilots to have a 4:00 am report time one day only to be followed by a 4:00 pm report time the next day. The pilots never know what day it is or if they should be awake or asleep. I also think that these scheduling people forget that pilots are humans with families and those family members don't like it when you try to call their pilot in on their day off...they are away from home enough as it is!

The airline industry is NOTHING like the movie, Catch Me if You Can!

I hate when they show disturbing images on news shows or online without any warning. I need the option to opt-out, especially when it comes to animal abuse. And because of that, I'm going to post a picture of my cats instead, who clearly are not subject to abuse, no matter what they try to tell visitors.

DC thinks he's abused because I won't put black-out shades in the office. The bright afternoon sun always disrupts his nap.

And Figment thinks the only place she is allowed to sleep is in the bathroom sink. Because we don't provide ANY soft places to sleep (and by any, I mean the three cat beds and the living room furniture).


  1. Haha, thanks for the shout out :) I totally agree with you about crew scheduling. My hubby called me at 7:30am this morning after 6 days on duty. He was trying to fly home from Cleveland, but they wanted him to deadhead back to base in case there was anything they could do with him for his last 2 hours on reserve! Hello!!!??? Yeah, they suck!

  2. I think that I hate screw scheduling as much or more than you do....really, you don't have to sound so damn perky as you're turning me for Christmas. Oh, and to call me at 4 am in a hotel, when I am already on a trip, for you to realize that you can't use me? Really, you didn't know where I was?

    BTW couldn't figure out how to post this except as anonymous....Jennifer
