An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard.
The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile,
and give them a, “Thanks for flying XYZ airline.” He said that in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking
the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally, everyone had gotten off
