If you're proud of what you've got, there's nothing to live down  Wink.

Depends on the sort of person you are of course! If you're a socially retarded, emotionally stunted arsehole I suppose you might dissapear into the wild blue yonder and live like a limpet for the rest of your life, fearful that someone might bring it up.

On the other hand, you could just accept the stick you get from your mates with a bit of humour, knowing that you full well deserve it, and relax in the knowledge that they'll have somone else to pick on in due course ......
Statistically, people who have had the most birthdays tend to live the longest.

I don't think he's intending to. Which is good, because if the controllers over there are anything like the controllers over here, he'll never be able to.

Maybe him and that GB Pilot should arrange a meeting some time. I'm sure Air Traffic Control would love to guide him in.

Where does The Sun get these things.

What's the news value in this? There are thousands of people on those sites, why did they pick out that one? I know it's the sun, but still, are they going through all profiles on such sites now to see for people's professions?
I love my Airport Job! :)
