    Pink slip city.

    I don't care how clever the guy "may be." Save it for when you've accomplished something.

    It would go something like "You and the Captain are released effective immediately."
    Him/Them: Are you serious
    Me: Yes

    I wouldn't even bother calling the prior work location.

    No kidding. I thought I was capable of some good practical jokes but that guy is the master. :thumbsup:



    WTF Ravioli? Why? This was a controller BTW, one person, not "You and the Captain". Did you post on the wrong thread?

    Correct thread. New controller (or employee of any type) comes in and dicks around throughout their training period instead of taking it seriously?

    Hasta la vista.

    I'm sure he's a heads down serious guy "the rest of the time," right?

    It's consistent with my posts about the workplace, if that's what you mean.

    I guarantee that if the manager had sacked his ass he would be laughing for years about the guy who came in a tried to pull that stuff and got what happened. Of course the guy getting sacked would just file a grievance and probably get stationed somewhere else to pull stupid idea number three.

    Not all audiences view the same "joke" the same way, it seems.

    I failed to see what was funny.

    I mean if Jim had paid attention in class then the test score would have been higher.

    This story doesn't surprise me. I've worked with many former controllers and a few of them were definitely "characters". As mentioned previously in this thread, a controller who ****es off his new boss isn't going to get fired for a harmless joke. Reprimanded or written up, perhaps, but unlikely. My guess is his boss was more relieved that he didn't have a nut case for a staff member.
