“A pilot is just a flying bus driver”

I get the impression that you are an elitist snob, you don’t seem to like anyone, you insult the police, security personal and everyone else that you think are beneath the status of a pilot. It seems to me like a poor attitude for a glorified, flying bus driver.

Oh,his brother who was a pilot? Donnie and his father used to call him a flying bus driver.  They cut his whole family out of the will.  Donnie didn’t care about him for one reason: he was someone other than himself.
