So I just got down watching "Airline" and got this idea for a topic. I love hearing stupid and angry employees say stuff, and I think my all time favorite quote from these people are "Ladies and gentlemen, we have a man up here who DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS.." I have no problem when people say this for a real reason, but when someone says it when their luggage is going around the carousel and there yelling at the customer, its hilarious.
So what's your favorite quote from angry dumb employees?
(sorry, I couldn't resist)
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

"so odds are they wouldn't get in trouble"
Yer absolutely right. I guess they were not THAT dumb after all.
As an employee, I do want to sympathize with PAXs. We do this everyday, knows all the tricks, PAX may do this a few times a year. PAX know he's at a disavantage, and he's looking to take the upper hand. No chance, but he tries anyway, with, at times, comical results.
Pride gets in the way though. If PAXs (very few) just come up to ask me nicely, be reasonable, NO PROBLEMO, I am glad he's giving me a challenge and gets me out of the daily doldrum. But Nooooo, they want to get the upper hand on me. Oh really? u do this everyday Sir?

OK - your title did include dumb comments
Really bad night. LAX was socked in while wx at our station was perfect. Gobs of delayed pax demanding exact information. Up comes four spanish speaking folks wanting getting upset that we did not have anyone who spoke their language. We got desparate and called an agent who just came in from Tuscon and had bragged about his bi-lingual prowess. Some of us cringed however, because we knew it was usually used only while drunk and procurring female services across the border. He begs out but others pressured him to speak to the now more upset passengers. He slowly mutters something to them and no one hears it. Please sir, again. Finally he just blurts out
"The Weathero in LAo is bado"
Less sarcasm and more thought equal better understanding

A few years ago I went to a local casino for lunch. Someone had parked across the line using two parking spaces, and in close to the building. Having a small car I parked in the tiny space remaining, leaving this knothead not very much room to get into his car.
When I came back there was an extremely obscene and abusive note under my windshield wiper.
It was written on the blank back of the serial-number page of an employee's handbook for that casino. If I'd taken it to the personnel office this moron would have been fired that very day. I was a nice guy about it and tossed the note.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
