That pilot was way out of line!!

I haven't been here long and therefore haven't listened to John too much, but I'd bet that his cuter remarks fade out of his phraseology because you simply don't have enough time for the extras.

He still gets his mocha hagotdi's, hasta la vista's, and Jet Bluuuue!'s in, even at the busiest of times.

I started listening at about 2100GMT.

I'd say he'd been on for a bit before then.

2130 GMT is when he really gets into his good mood

"Its all about mocha hagotdi" He draws it out for about 5 seconds on several occasions. On the way into or leaving Boston, Pilots must hope he is on Duty!!!

I guess that pilot was having a really bad day. To quote Eric Cartman, "someone has some sand in his vagina" grin
LMAO, good quote. Very True.

The pilot's all defensive because he got confused.

I've never heard a more bewildered "Say again??"

The pilot had a bug up his ass. What an asshole!

You don't mistreat controllers.

.......Having a sense of humor is one thing and so is being professional on the air.

And in my opinion Boston John successfully does both. 

I'm not in ATC but I'm on the air professionally as an emergency services dispatcher, something I've been doing for the last 16 years (and still waiting for it to become a 'job').  I truly believe from listening to all the Boston John archives here that he truly loves his job as well.

While dispatching PD/FD/EMS units doesn't have the same repitition to it as a tower controller position does I do have my own 'style' while on the air.  It doesn't delay getting a call out, it doesn't offend anyone (that I've ever been told in 16 years anyway), and it's not juvenile or immature.  My officers (and FD and EMS members) have told me they enjoy when I'm on the desk. 

I can't, don't want to, and could care less about that pilot.  If he was that callous and rude to make that statement then he has a lot more to learn about how to deal with people.  I wonder what his PA announcements to his passengers are like........... grin
