  1. Am I the only one that thinks that people have gotten stupid during this pandemic. Customers at work... There isn't much I like about working at a grocery store. The only thing I am grateful for it is that it's a job that pays during a pandemic. I said I would quit when I got my old job back. Well I did get my old job back in November, but knowing that a pandemic doesn't go away overnight, I forced myself to stay. I often wonder if its really worth it. But I swear I think people have gotten more stupid. Bad enough that I work alone in a giant cold room (Dairy Department) where it's
  2. I don't collect foreign coins except for Hungarian & Chinese Pandas but this I found at work. I just got to one planes that I was about to load up. Climbed in and found this Jamaican 2018 $10 Coin. After doing some research, $10 in Jamaican is equivalent to $0.087 in Canadian.
  3. My condolences go out to you and your family Captain. Very sorry for your loss. All the best to you and your family.
  4. The first flight from Calgary to Toronto on the Max this morning was cancelled. I'm surprised this made the news. Heard over the radio at work that it was cancelled and after dropped off carts at the Max, I spoke to the managers and said that warnings went off before takeoff. This plane (C-FRYV) was the backup plane for WestJet's flight to Vancouver yesterday morning. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/westjet-boeing-max-1.5884347
  5. C-FHCM at C51 just before departing as WS115 to YVR as the first flight of the Max in Canada since the grounding.
  6. It isn't over for PH-BFW!!!!! She's in Tel Aviv for partial cargo conversion for LongTail Aviation. Since it's already a Combi, it will only require a partial conversion. Credits: The TLV Spotters on Facebook
  7. First Revenue Flight for the Max's return in Canada will likely be WestJet Flight WS658 departing Calgary on January 21st at 0800, arriving at 1351 in Toronto. Subject to change. I'll try to get photos airside as I am working before its departure if confirmed. Edit: WS115/122 will be the first 737 Max Flight since the grounding in Canada. WS658 is now a 737-700. Departing YYC at 0800.
  8. Okay, who the hell travels with a suitcase with screws sticking out of it? Nice patch job, they didn't think that the ground handlers at the airport could injure themselves. I ended up cutting my leg this morning resulting in a peroxide / alcohol flush in to prevent gangrene. Told my boss about it, they reported it but not sure what will come out of it. This wasn't the best start to a 13 Hour shift.
  9. Meh I had zero intentions of celebrating Christmas. But got a couple things this year. My favorite Coffee & Chocolate from my grocery store job. Subway gift card from airport job. Probably my favorite: A Christmas Sweater with "Merry Christmas ya Filthy Animal" on it. An American Airlines MD-80 in 1/100 scale. Eau Claire Distillery Whiskey. 18 Hours of statutory / Holiday shifts + pay.
  10. Two Things from Today. (Actually Three but won't post one of the moments, for now at least) 1) Heard it on the news in the states but never expected to witness it. Some f*cking b*tch decided on cough on (Yeah, without a mask on) nearly 10k of produce (fruits and vegetables) at the store I worked at. Resulting it being either thrown into compost or the trash compactor. The manager called security and then the police on her. Security did jack shit and the cops said they were busy, even though they are just 5 minutes away. Truth be told, I just believe they don't give a shit. So they told he
  11. Cargolux - Boeing 747 in Retro Livery made a rare daylight appearance to YYC on December 9th!
  12. People who repeat the same topic or always make the conversation about themselves. Don't get me wrong, as much as it sounds, I am a sociable and very talkative person (once you get to know me). Especially during a pandemic where face-to-face interaction is somewhat rare, I value whatever conversations that I can have with other individuals who I can relate too. However, there are few coworkers at one of my jobs where the conversations give me a headache. All they do when they talk is make the conversations about themselves, repeating the same topic when another person walks in the room. I
  13. Calgary had a huge protest against masks and restrictions. If people understood that once if we just lockdown, suck up to the masks bylaw and social distancing and not have gatherings, the numbers would go down eventually. At work, we are ordered to mask up even in the cafeteria. There's this one guy at work who's anti-mask and etc. He says its flu, conspiracy and etc and will never shut up about it even we tell him that no one cares. He even hosted an anti-mask rally in one of the towns outside of Calgary. Since there is no plan at work if there are positive cases, it annoys us. But we
  14. For the first time ever I went out Black Friday shopping yesterday and scored myself a gaming chair for just little over $100 instead of $200 with discounts and etc. I've been using an a cheap office chair for the five years that's now been stripped of its leather. Not the most comfortable thing but certainly happy with the upgrade. Just as a note, I did buy this from the grocery store I work at. I am not willing to go out otherwise to the mall especially during a pandemic.
