WestJet Passenger Leaves Note On Napkin to Female Pilot

Lets just say this passenger didn’t leave the nicest comment to the pilot.  The reason?  The passenger didn’t like the fact that the pilot was a female.

“To Capt. / WestJet,” the note, written on the back of a napkin reads, “The cockpit of airlier [sic] is no place for a woman. A woman being a mother is the most honor not as “captain” Proverbs 31 (Sorry not P.C.) P.S. I wish WestJet could tell me a fair lady is at the helm so I can book another flight! Were [sic] short mothers not pilots Westjet.

As you can see the passenger was extremely sexist and hurtful to the pilot.  After all the years she has been a pilot mainly received complements.  Here’s what she had to say on her Twitter account:

“I have heard many comments from people throughout my 17 year career as a pilot,” Steacy wrote. “Most of them positive. Your note is, without a doubt, the funniest … You were more than welcome to deplane when you heard I was a “fair lady.” … We all, us humans, have the same rights in this great free country of ours. Now, back to my most important role, being a mother.”

She’s had a lot of backers on Twitter and Facebook and many are putting the man who wrote the note in his place.  I wonder if they will find out who wrote it?  Challenge for Reddit?
