I was listening to real world Seattle this morning 11/26 12:20 PM or so -- lots of icing concerns this morning -- Heard them say final was running up near Paine (PAE) (I had to laugh -- I'm a controller on VATSIM and my training mentors are always getting after me for doing this with lots of traffic -- so Ha!)
Anyways everyone is in a fairly punchy mood dealing with it -- excellent controllers today -- just heard this exchange:
APP: United 322 reduce speed 180 you're number 8 or 9
UAL: OK, fine, be that way, we'll do it
APP: We can send you to Canada
UAL: If I punch my first officer in the nose do we qualify as a lifeguard flight?
APP: Sure, if you don't mind being 1 mile behind a heavy 757 on final...
