It sounds like those people really didn't think that airline thing through.
Kids, if you only take ten seconds to think about a FW transition and a job at an airline, you could find yourself in that same situation. Go ahead and take that one extra second, and think, "Hmmm, now what do airlines do? They go places, don't they? Sometimes those places are far away. HEY, those airline pilots must be having to TRAVEL!"
For those who couldn't think enough to make it to that eleventh second......heeeere's your sign.
