The worst expat captains

Capt T was on duty travel flying in the first class as a pax with his co-pilot. He drank a lot of whisky until he became a nuisance to the other paxs and the cabin crew. The chief steward could not handle the situation as T still insisted on having his whisky. The cs approached me for help.
After looking at the situation, I told T he would not be served alcohol anymore. T was angry and shouted at me. He told me if it was Air India, he would have gotten me a sack (he was a former captain with AI). All the paxs in the first class were watching us. I did not say anything even after making several threats at me. T then marched into the cockpit and spoke to the captain flying the plane (another ex colleague of his). I was summoned to the cockpit and ordered to serve T the whisky. I refused and locked up the whisky.
The captain flying the plane was also another ass****. Not long before this incident, I had a bad encounter with him on another flight. When the flight we were working on had a long delay out of the Middle East, he and his cockpit crew were put in a hotel while the cabin crew was asked to sleep in the unheated aircraft cabin (it was during winter and the temperature was about 10C). Paxs were also put in the hotels. I asked him to speak to the station manager but he refused. He told me " cabin crew is not my business" and buzz off with his cockpit crew.

The title should be " The Worst Expat Captains" and not "The Worse..,,,,," English is very broken !

"Bad English" if you think BT's England is bad why bother coming here in the first place? Should go to some England professors' blogs. This is an entertainment blog and NOT a grammar teaching blog. Get a life snob!

Methink actually to use Worse "" hole Captain. But being polite as he is always, omitted the first.In those days no internet, so cannot fight the management ,witness the tit for tat behaviours, so "" hole is correct. Worst does not fit in ,does not rythme. Should rightly be Worse. Wish one and all a good and great commenting.!
