Hold horror stories: Chief, we've got a f*cking idiot on line 1. Oh, you heard all that

years ago was involved with initial rollout and testing of pc upgrades to major airline.

systems were locked down, software needed to certify aircraft could not be used.

when asked my thoughts on conference call (base personal in my office) I said a fking idiot planned this.

did not know it, VP of company (at time largest carrier in world) was on call and spoke up said I am that idiot.

I said I stand by my statement and in my primary job (records) may ground most of your regional fleet due to this.

issue was fixed in less than a week.

could have heard a pin drop when I refused to apologize for calling him a fking idiot.

but...I was sweating a few days LOL
