"I hope he didnt get any action taken against him. Its not our job to hold pilots hands! Pick up a freaking chart. Pilots bitch at us all the time, we dont get offended. but you say saomething to them, and they run away crying!"
dude, are you serious??? Thats an idiotic remark!
To quote from Southpark and from another post that involved our boy Boston John,
"Sounds like someone has got some sand up his vagina!"
I absolutely agree with the top remark. I am a pilot and it is my responsibility to steer my ship - it is all about being a pilot an navigation is one of our functions - not to be lazy and to ask ATC to make decisions for me.
100% with the controller on this one and I'm quite frankly surprised and almost disgusted about some of the comments that have been made regarding this clip. Remember - the controller said "I don't ALWAYS (although not this time) have time" - maybe this is an on-going problem for ATC in this area and that they are wasting a lot of time on requests like this.
Don't be so quick to judge - all of you.
