I just love sassy women. We operate on the theory that the more crap you put up with, the more crap you’re going to get.
Short story: Female certified pilot in Brazil. Male passenger blurts, “Someone should have told me the captain was a woman. I’m not flying with a female at the controls.”
This will not end well. I know that for a fact.
She tossed his butt off the airplane, but not mid-flight, which takes some of the fun out of the story. But, she did toss him out and have him met by the police.
Her airline stood up for her.
The Brazilian airline later backed its pilot’s decision with a statement that it wouldn’t tolerate disparaging remarks about any of 1,400 women working there.
Okay, so if Mitt Romney wins, I’m moving to Brazil. And applying for a job to drive the police car that drives these dudes away.
Thanks to Carl for the heads-up.
