Another Great WTF Moment

I was removing sutures on a patient's index finger.  Mac, who is famous for using running sutures (that I don't want to fu*k with) had fortunately only placed regular old interrupted sutures, but there were a lot of them.  The patient happened to be a pilot, and he marveled that my old and decrepit eyes could see them let alone remove them so expeditiously. 

Pilot: "I've been noticing that I have been having more difficulty with seeing things.  Sometimes on approach, things don't always seem that clear so I have to rely on instruments"
Me: "Captain, that is the kind of sh*t the public doesn't want to hear".  Seriously?

Which airline was that?
