If your airplane was getting old when you were born

If you have not done a daylight takeoff or landing in the past 6 months

If ATC advises you of smoother air at other altitudes, and you don't care

If you've lost over 45% of your hearing because the aircrafts sound proofing was removed to save weight

If you wear the same shirt to work for a week, and nobody complains

If other airlines wait for you to test the squall line first

If center mispronounces your callsign more than three times during a single flight

If your director of operations mysteriously increases your max takeoff weight during the holiday season

If you refuse to accept vectors around weather and choose to stck to the shortest route

If you call the hotel van to pick you up and they have no idea wher you are on the airport

If other airlines post guarads on their aircraft when your mechanics are on the ramp

If your company declares bankruptcy to clean out the seniority list

If fuelers require cash up front before pumping gas

If the same model of aircraft you fly can be seen in museums

if the aircraft has more than 50 collared circuit breakers

If you hear about aircraft with flushing toilets and say, " well don't that beat all....what will they think of next

If mothers tell their children to stay away from you in terminals because they think you live there

If you show up early and a general aviation pilot asks you to fuel his plane and carry his bags

If you think a room with more than one vending machine is a food court

If you think ALPA is dog food

If "real" airline captains come to look at your plane and nostalgically say, "I flew this once when I was young"

If most ground stations for your onboard navigation equipment have been decommisioned

If 10% of your basic operating weight is paint and doubling patches

I get a kick out of this everytime!!!
