or perhaps just a good date.

AW, say what you really mean.

Nicely done.

The RA's, Jeff Smiseks, John Pritzkers and Frank Lorenzos do not care about their employees or the working class. They are there to lengthen their resume and fill their pockets, not make a career, or keep people working. When they do not get their way they send you packing...not the other way around.
I don't think he does. It's kind of a no "Bainer" when you think about it.

I have you confused........nope, you're doing that all on ur own. You know what my fellow employees think of me? Truly delusional and one of the 1st attributes of an alcoholic. To see things that aren't there. LOL. I got great shoulders, no chips though. The fact that I have been on Topix totally supporting my AL and her Mgmt team and that seems rude to you is another attribute of hazy thought process. But I like it..........we kicked the union out, gotta a pay raise, profit sharing and just today we all received a memo from Richard that our 2013 pay raises will be starting 01Jan13 instead of 01Jul13. All that w/out a contract. The only legacy carrier offering such benefits. UAL/CAL have asked for a strike, the FA's aren't talking, USAir/HP are now in their 6th yr of no merger merging and AMR is on her back. I am hoping survival for all, always have. Grew up on AMR, have always loved the proud bird w/ the golden tail and thought of UAL as a true American Carrier. You my dear need to add more sprite and less vodke. When ur not posting as Toad from HOU ur sounding even scarier, lol.

Responding like the true bitter ex you are. Haven't seen you congratulate DAL on any of the great things happening during a horrible economy. Thats true team work. But you can't fathom that w/out having to be hand help my a worthless contract that got you fired in the end, and I mean, really, in the far end. LOL. The current DAL folks giggle about haters like you. We're loving watching you prove urself a fool.

I thought at 1st u were/are kidding. Alas, u have gone further and believed ur own delusions and lies. Cutting hair is not my thing 'FakeToad'.........but I do love a good romp which would include sum tackling. Now..........the 1st step is admitting somethings wrong..........terribly wrong. Ur victim-hood is again an attribute of ur being un-stable due to hormones/liquor/drugs/ignoranc e. Well done.BTW, no self respecting human would use E-Harmony. They discriminated against LGBT. They were made to relent..........wayyy too late. Try Manhunt. Hawt.

Huh??? No we dont. Those great employees were truly shafted by corperate coruption at NWA with DL pulling the strings.. That is not to be celebrated. They need their jobs back with full back pay. Stop your hateing girl.

Madame, I am a lady, and it would appear, that YOUR dementia is setting in faster than you EVER imagined. Why would YOU care about the LGBT community? Scabs don't care about ANYONE but themselves. I am not a victim, I just stand up to bullies, and you dear lady are a bully. As a married employed mother of three I have NO interest in "Manhunt" or any other of your perverse and deviant porn. You disgust me, not only as a scab, but the delusional diatribe you post on here. As I have said madame, YOU are a BULLY! Nothing less, you point a finger at others but it is ACTUALLY you who is the nasty "person" here casting accusations at others moral character. As I suggested, madame, get a hobby or another cat! Or go walk around the terminal on your days off and keep up the union busting or go and try to spread that strange thing you call your "lifestyle", but leave me out of your cesspool of filth and accusations! Otherwise I will be forced to call SOMEONE at Delta to investigate the way you hurl slurs and accusations online in the Topix Airline Forum! Good day Madame! Good day!

Leasing AC for less than you could purchase them is the best of all world. I love Mr Anderson selling his stock, shows he wants some money like the rest of us selling stock in other ventures. Profitable stock holders don't use the 'jumping ship' ruse just because someone sells a very small % of their holdings.......done every day, every where. We, the majority have spoken, 9 elections, 9 no votes 9 times winning the ruling from the NMB which just happens to mean winning against a stacked deck. We have proven ourselves ready to team w/ all groups to produce a greater product and profit and pay and benefits. The very few that are working against the majority stick out like dim wits, union holdovers, waiting to sick out, strike, slow down.'Fired in the end, the very end" Now, we've done this now for yrs........since DAL is really running great rite now, what pos. things do you have to say or are you a one trick pony cause of ur bitterness.

When you tell lies you are known as a liar. DAL had nothing to do w/ NWA prior to merge. DAL did no shafting. DAL offered DOH. So you are a liar spreading lies based on some deep seeded bitterness for no true reason towards DAL.

I invite you to contact DAL and have them review the postings of 'Toad'........I encourage it. We don't have SCABS @ DAL. We have never been union and the def for a scab is crossing a union "line"..........we @ DAL have voted to keep unions off the campus for 70 yrs now and you call US union busters. Typical speak from a union member that only wants one thing, control. If you don't drink then you gotta be just crazy or on drugs that aren't working well for you.. So, now, LGBT is a lifestyle? Hurling an insult to a very large group of folks aren't you? BTW, I guess being a liar is to you some attributes of a 'Lady'.........that's ur sickness speaking trying to defend ur hatred of those that don't look, act, feel, play, love, dress, worship like you. To you I'm a SCAB, a pervert for sticking up for LGBT and a union buster for helping rally the troops in a no vote for rep........LOL. Do you have insurance benefits that cover Psych?

Once again you twist words around for "YOUR" own "SPECIAL" needs. I have no use for people with gender issues or problems and I keep my children away from people with such. We are GOOD people who try to keep away from the likes you! Your just a mess, is your excuse drugs, booze, both or are you just a moron? Get help SOON! You really are a "special" woman. I love how you have thrown out threats and judgement on others on Topix, but you do not seem too keen on the same treatment Ms. Toad! BTW you might want to notify your supervisor I have sent this and several OTHER Topix threads to Delta Supervisors, I am sure they do not appreciate the way you have presented yourself as an employee and your attacks as such. Do you push the cart in this manner and do your best to try to ROLL OVER everyone on an aircraft as well? No wonder no one on Topix seems to think much of you based on what I see posted. Get help Ms. Toad, your not getting any younger and another CRAZY old stewardess is one too many. BTW, I am a good Christian I do not SMOKE, DRINK or use DRUGS. Obviously it has been a while since your last drug test. Perhaps you Sup will have one of those ready for you as well.

Me thinks the lady Ms. Toad doth protest too much! You really need to go to charm school or as I have said, sign up for E-Harmony, a nice Christian husband will make you a happy woman and maybe a mother before it is too late. An old maid with a bunch of cats and YOUR attitude is NEVER a pretty thing even in this day and age.

LMFAO..........calling LGBT perverts and then yourself a Christian while also indicating a womans choice to not get married and have kids is abnormal and sad. How Christian of you. Keeping your kids away from other folks that suffer from gender identity is fab for you, won't work for the kids. They're smarter than you are. BTW, I am Jewish..........don't you just want to tell me how I'm going to hell, lol. You can't push 'values' when you overtly display the lack there-of.
