Just listened to it, sounds pretty funny - not sure if he'd be able to get in trouble for being annoyingly by the book lol.

Yeah dude definitely is a call sign NAZI but don't think there's a rule against being an asshole. Either way the one fiasco with whatever delta fox sounds like it was recorded from the tower, and you posted it to the internet, you :p:p:p:p:p:p:p idiot.

Easily and legally obtainable by anybody.

Oh I have no doubt that this was recorded from the tower. Some one there must hate that the guy is single handedly driving away traffic.

Those that can't control, control what they can... like augmenting the weather lol

Pilot: we are cleared to Fresno airport via...

Controller: Sir you did not read back your clearance limit correctly, it is the Fresno Yosemite International airport.

This guy is a total tool. I am glad I dont work with him.

Are we not taught that if we initially issue a clearance, we should be checking the times to make sure they don't drop from the NAS?

He probably got his ass chewed by some lame supe because his phraseology wasn't perfect, (niner, full callsigns, etc...). Western Pac Reg is notorious for this.

"Excuse me sir, you said "OK" on my frequency, I don't believe that "OK" is standard phraseology as approved by the AIM. Please refrain from the use of non-standard phraseology on my frequency. I have another aircraft to attend to, but when I return to this frequency, I would like an affirmation that you understand the reprimand you have been given and that you understand that I may go home and fap to this on LiveATC later, and I'm gonna need your full callsign, too."

The really unfortunate aspect is he likely was not always this way and at some point pissed someone off doing something else and some suit came down on him for some little thing and this is his response. We have a couple of those at our facility and its not being a d!ck, it is being anally by the book, most likely to prove a point....

Even if this is the way he has always been, it is insanely annoying (like the guy who requires a land line call if you are sitting next to him, and we have one of those as well), but he is by the book and would never be removed for following the book to the letter....

FAT was like this as well. No over shoulder coordination. Phraseology too. Interesting perspective.

That's how I see this. Horrible way to survive the career, but it is a reality for some folks.
