    Yeah, I thought that would happen. It is after all a privilege extended at will by the airline.

    The airline is also in a vise, too: they can't adjudicate case by case because of the risk of being sued for preferential treatment by employees they decided against. That's why employers have taken to hiding behind automatic policies. It avoids liability.

    IINM employers won't even give ex-employees recommendations any more for fear of being sued by ex-employees they don't recommend.

    Wouldn't have figured on a full 1-year suspension, but it makes sense.

    Maybe she's just acting out idioms. Next up: two hands and a map.

    She disproved the idiom though, since she did pi55 on him.

    Let me know when she gets around to finding her way out of a wet paper bag.

    At will maybe but I think its in the union contract. Family of employees fly for free(have to pay taxes). You represent the airline so no flip flops, shorts or Tshirts. As a non rev, paying customers go first unless its flight crew. Pilots can jump seat on any airline, even UPS and Fed Ex. And for whats it worth I'll be able to fly to Europe 6 times a year for free

    I'm not sure how this is possible.

    I just assumed it was one of those situations where there's a raised highway and somebody goes through the railing and drops onto the house. But no, this guy was on the ground below the house and driving so fast than when he hit the curb and the front yard incline he got air and flew to the roof.

    I've been in a car that got air, once, and the engine block weighs so much that the front immediately drops like an anchor in mid-air.

    So again, how is this even possible?

    Perhaps more of a head-scratcher than anything, but...

    My email account just disappeared from the email server. I called in for a support ticket after receiving a couple errors, was told that'd I'd receive an email when they've fixed the issue. Um...

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    This reminds me of Comcast's instructions to report network outages using their website.

    I guess it helps their metrics.

    Welcome to government bureaucracy. Six figures for a three figure job, and they want to tear down the three figure to make way for six. http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/toronto...mate-1.3510237

    Well, the fact that you and these local residents don't understand building codes and liability isn't helping.

    Is this absurd? Sure. But this person slapped together some claptrap staircase on public land, and the city is supposed to turn a blind eye?

    I see a half dozen code violations in this photo, and I haven't dealt with building codes in a decade.

    From a liability standpoint for the City of Toronto, this is a giant neon blinking "lawsuit" sign.

    Do I feel bad that the locals involved are out $500? Absolutely. But wow, this is the epitome of "you get what you pay for."

    You either break your neck on the stairs, or break your neck going down a steep hill. Either way, you break your neck. And yet, the ambulance chaser isn't the issue here?

    From what I read, there was a longer route that went around the slope. The rope from a tree and worn path down the slope was the locals solution to being lazy. So this guy, tired of not wanting to walk around OR use the rope shortcut built this. On public property.

    Ambulance chasers are a problem. So are unlicensed, unsafe stairs built on public property.
