He Seems Nice

[Content Note: Misogyny.]

A male passenger on a recent WestJet flight left behind a cool note scrawled on a cocktail napkin for the female pilot:
A female WestJet pilot says she was in "shock" after a passenger left behind a note following a weekend flight to say that the cockpit is "no place for a woman."

Crew cleaning the aircraft found a note, written on a napkin and signed by "David," after passengers deplaned from the Calgary to Victoria flight on Sunday.

In addition to suggesting that women don't belong at the controls of an airplane, the note also said that "A woman being a mother is the most honour, not as 'captain.'"

"PS I wish Westjet (sic) could tell me a fair lady is at the helm so I can book another flight," David went on. On the back of the napkin, David wrote that he was "not impressed," and signed it "Respectfully in love, David."
Call me kooky, but I am impressed by any pilot who navigates my ass safely to my destination!

Obviously, everything about David's note is terrific, but my favorite part is his parenthetical apology: "(Sorry not P.C.)" LOL! You know, somehow I think David isn't really sorry for his failure of political correctness. Or basic decency.
