Instagram Pilots

While I like to browse different applications and the web to find beautiful pictures and or videos of aviation, I am starting to be very disgusted by this new generation of instagram pilots. I think it's a total lack of professionalism to take selfies every 2 minutes and film yourself making PAs etc...They are real attention wh*res and a lot of the time those wanting all this attention are far from being the most proficient people to fly with. I was sitting at Starbucks in YYZ having a coffee when this young girl copilot for a US regional, in uniform, sits down a few tables from me, pulls out her selfie stick and start a video talking about her day and how her line training is going on etc.....in front of passengers. I was SO embarrassed to be in uniform because of her. Disgusting. You can tell they want to appear as special people because they are pilots. No you're not, just do your job and shut the f up.

Wrong side of the bed this morning?

Pre-selfies, you can spot a newly qualified pilot, they go through doorways left shoulder first.

Real airplanes ( read Boeing) come with a map reading light instead of a stray table for your soy burger.

you are talking about the thing over her left shoulder, right of the picture? as B2N2 said, it's the map light.

Didn't wake up on the wrong side of the bed, nor am I grumpy. I just think it's unacceptable and totally unprofessional.

I still think air vent or light, doubt the Sextant mount as both sides have one.
