TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (325)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Consumerist.com (from Wednesday, June 22; link good at time of posting):
While Southwest Airlines might be tops in customer satisfaction, at least one of its pilots is dissatisfied with his employer's lack of sexy stewardesses. And now that pilot has been suspended after his profanity-filled rant on the topic was broadcast from the cockpit.

Talking to his co-pilot, the pilot launched into a rant about the slim pickings during his nights out with the flight crew in Chicago.

"Eleven f***ing over the top homosexuals f***ing a** f***ing homosexuals and a granny," the pilot complained in a rant that was inadvertently broadcast to air traffic controllers in Houston and others in the area. "Eleven! I mean, think of the odds of that!"

"I thought I was in Chicago, which is party land," he continues. "After that, it was a just a continuous stream of gays and grannies and grandes."


The incident occurred back in March. A rep for Southwest says the pilot had been suspended but was reinstated after taking some diversity training....
