The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747, call sign Speedbird 206. Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of active runway Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One- Seven." The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location now." Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not been to Frankfurt before?" Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark, And I didn't land." While taxiing at London's Gatwick Airport, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727 An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming: "US Air 2771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Deltal Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!" Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you tol You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour, and I want you to go exactly whereI tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?" "Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded. Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high. Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?" #5 is epic

 Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was
 now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed
 everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You
 stay right there and don't move till I tell you tol You

 when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air
 2771?"
 "Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.
 Naturally, the ground control communications

 US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the
 irate ground controller in her current state of mind.
 Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was
 definitely running high.
 Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and
 keyed his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to
 you once?"
