    My wife is still at TULE. My main interest here is to see how the contract, if you ever get one, will impact my family. My main complaint right now regarding being a spouse of an American Airlines employee is the lack of vacation time. I really would like to see you guys get more vacation time.

    Anything that benefits you benefits me, so naturally, I want to see you get the most perks and pay possible.

    Anything I might have missed does not exist anymore. I do not regret starting a new career. I had some good years (not all but some) at American Airlines but it was time to move on. My only regret is that I stayed so long in a situation after it became obvious it was not a good fit for me.

    Do we still have 10 years of recall in case of a layoff? As far as I know I have 2 years left of recall. I don't know that I would have to reapply, as far as I know, I could simply put in a transfer if I had the interest. Correct me if I am wrong.

    So you do admit there are serious problems there you have had to "come to terms with".

    My bet is that causes you far more stress than you are aware and that really is sad.

    Though I think that was a passive aggressive dig at me I find a lot of truth in that statement.

    Perhaps not but that dynamic is pretty widespread. One advantage of being in Fleet is we worked all over the base. When you work all over the base you see and hear a lot. Some of it even true. :D That gives you a pretty broad view of the base as a whole.

    That is what I expect of any worker who dares call himself a professional.

    Why do you suppose that is? That is not a rhetorical question. I seriously would like to know why you think Fleet shares those experiences and attitudes.

    Again I feel that is a passive aggressive dig at me, and again I find a lot of truth in it. I really don't want to be "that" guy who comes to work in a foul mood all the time.

    Ahh luck.

    While I would never deny myself the benefit of luck I find planning and preparation usually mitigates the need for it.

    I say things people don't like to hear.

    That definitely does not gain me any fans.

    Speaking of, here are one of those non fans now.

    They really should start a club.
