Ha ha! Love it!A belated welcome to the forums then!
A pilot eh? Here's a true pilot story....
In the marina here during the winter we get a lot of liveaboards and we have a group barbecue every Sunday, it's the perfect way for new arrivals to meet everyone. One year we had a lovely Japanese guy and his wife turn up - he told us to call him Yoshi. He spoke English with a very strong Japanese accent, his wife spoke hardly any at all. We asked him what he did before he moved aboard his yacht (we ask everyone that) and he said "I'm pirate".
The hubbub of people chatting feel eerily silent and everyone looked at Yoshi. What he didn't know was that the winter before, an American flagged yacht that was booked in for that winter in our marina had been hijacked by Somali pirates and all four Americans aboard had been killed. We were pretty sensitive to piracy that year I can tell you.
The guy sitting opposite asked him again what he did. "I'm pirate" he replied, smiling. Somebody asked him what sort of pirate he was and he said "air-rine pirate". It turns out he used to fly 747s for JAL.
I've updated my profile name to match because I love the cryptic nature of that one!
