Coffee & Pretzels

A few years ago I started drawing and writing my own cartoon. I didn't see anyone lampooning the airline industry properly, so I figured, what the hell, I'll start my own cartoon. I post a new comic every Monday morning. Yes, I'm a pilot with a "legacy" airline and after witnessing all the various aspects of working within training departments, safety, ALPA, committees, suffering through mergers and bankruptcies, and flying the line for the last 18 years it was time.

Hope you enjoy them;

Very well done sir! I’ll make sure this makes the rounds with people in my circle ;) I detect a consistent theme - too many party happy millenials at your legacy?

Welcome and I also hope you continue to enjoy drawing the cartoons. I am sure they fit the job and conditions in your chosen profession. We had guys in my profession who were cartoonists also.

The first one definitely takes the cake (or Flakes, as the case may be).

Thanks, it's took some darn near pleading on my part but the moderators allowed me to post my cartoon here, so I'm humbled and grateful to them. And thanks to all of you for welcoming me.

Yes, the airline culture of Boomers, Gen X'ers and Millennials is a wonderful milieu of angst, entitlement, superiority complex and assumption, but I guess that can be said of corporate culture, military and academia. Good times.

Cheers!

Hey folks, on a few other forums I re-post the link to my website every Monday morning so the thread pops to the top of that forum. That's what I did this morning but I didn't post anything else. I surely didn't mean to run afoul of the forum rules by only posting the link. Here is today's cartoon.

Heard there was a little football game yesterday. I was too busy looking for a marmot.
