What did you call me?

Oh, Chuck. You might never get the respect you think you deserve…

I see this situation every now and then in my job as well, mainly when a mechanic gets promoted to crew chief. It’s a tough spot to be in initially when you go from messing around with your buddies, being “one of the guys”, and having a good time for the most part to suddenly being in charge and held accountable. Some do better than others.

I have also found myself being more careful with practical jokes over the years as well because I have run into guys who don’t see the (admittedly sometimes rather thin) line between when it’s time to have fun and play, vs when it’s time to “get the job done” and concentrate. And that can get really dangerous in aviation.

So now that I think about it, did we actually create a warning about the dangers of distracting your coworkers in aviation? Or a statement about today’s society and current state of affairs? Or perhaps just a comic about a chicken playing around with a nerf gun?

    Come on Julio, we both know there is only one way of winning here. Buy one of those Nerf machine guns and 1000 rounds and make Chuck regret he even started the war. (They can be modded to fire fast enough to pack serious sting too, to add to the effectiveness)

    Caving his skull in with a large wrench would get the point thru clearer….

    we got an idiot at work who gets mad when we call him and idiot.
    The solution is quite simple.
    Stop acting like an idiot.
    He works as hard, if not harder, at being an annoying idiot, as he does at his actual job.

    Oh stop judging bitterly! May be Chuck had a poor childhood and had never played such a jolly toy. Now grown up and making some money he is trying to compensate the years and the fun long gone?
