Yes, there are actually people like this walking the streets of America–and flying the not-always-friendly skies.

“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.

Carey Smith Steacy, the pilot for whom the note was left, posted the note on Facebook. It since appears to have been taken down.
