airline pilot

– unlimited supply of hotel mini-soaps and sewing kits
– cool hat
– get to boss around co-pilot
Flying High II
– chance to sate radio DJ aspirations via in-flight announcement system
– can blame all abnormal behaviour on occupational stress
– those things practically fly themselves these days

– get bossed around by air traffic controller
– that ‘screechy’ sound tyres make when landing
– that ‘scrapy’ sound fuselage makes when tyres fail to deploy
– running out of petrol
– not a strong swimmer
– being a vegetarian makes resorting to cannabalism extra hard
– skyjacking: generalised perception of perps is that they’re not known for their personal hygene — compounded by confined space. (Nb. could be false assumption)
– get called ‘glorified bus driver’ by people
