    Allegedly, while taxiing at London's Gatwick
    Airport, the crew of a US Air flight departing
    for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and
    came nose to nose with a United 727. An irate
    female ground controller lashed out at the
    US Air crew, screaming: "US Air 2771, where
    the hell are you going?! I told you to turn right
    onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta!
    Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to
    tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"<!--google_ad_section_end-->

    <!-- google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) -->Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew,
    she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now
    you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever
    to sort this out! You stay right there and don't
    move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive
    taxi instructions in about half an hour and I want
    you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you,
    and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"<!--google_ad_section_end-->

    <!-- google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) -->US Air 2771: "Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew
    responded. Naturally, the ground control
    communications frequency fell terribly silent
    after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771.
    Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground
    controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every
    cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high.
    Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed
    his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?"<!--google_ad_section_end-->
