Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians, 4. 8

Another Day in Paradise...or A Day in the Life of a Delta Supervisor!

Where's Waldo?

The names have been changed to protect the innocent...Saturday I received a call from one of my agents..."We lost a cat". He was "tiggery" (as in T-I-double G-E-R) and bouncing around in his kennel when suddenly the side of the kennel blew out and the cat was on the RUNWAY. Two or three of the employees chased him as far as they could. They searched for over an hour and then spotted him dashing back toward the terminal and jumping into a drain. Animal rescue was notified, they placed a trap with a large can of tuna inside and hoped for the best. This morning I asked one of the ramp employees to show me where the trap was set. We walked over and there he was...inside the trap....tuna can empty...search and rescue was over. We notified his owner and made arrangements for his flight home. Delta provided a "proper" kennel and "Waldo" was on his way home. Another day in the life of an airline supervisor.
