During a taxi, the crew of a US Air
departure flight to Ft. Lauderdale made
a wrong turn and came nose-to-nose with
a United 727. The irate ground
controller (a female) lashed out at the
US Air crew screaming, "US Air 2771,
where are you going? I told you to turn
right on 'Charlie' taxi way; you turned
right on 'Delta.' Stop right there. I
know it's difficult to tell the
difference between a C and a D, but get
it right." Manning the computer help desk for the local school district was my first job. And though I was just an intern, I took the job very seriously. But not every caller took me seriously. - Can I talk [...]
Continuing her lashing to
the embarrassed crew, she was now
shouting hysterically, "You've screwed
everything up; it'll take forever to
sort this out. You stay right there and
don't move until I tell you to. You can
expect progressive taxi instructions in
about a half hour, and I want you to go
exactly where I tell you, when I tell
you, and how I tell you. You got that,
US Air 2771?"
Naturally, the "ground
control" frequency went terribly silent
until an unknown male pilot broke the
silence and asked, "Wasn't I married to

and walked away.
