going above and beyond

Oh I know they didn't, actually they can't, well not in a timely manner to confirm it's legitimacy, the airlines communications network (ARINC/ACARS) is a private entity & to confirm his BNDD number they would have to interconnect with the onsite FAA ARTCC facility to interconnect with the nearest DEA office with access to that particular database & the DEA would have a fit over some low ball aggravation like that. His BNDD number is the old "Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs" controlled substances dispensary certificate registration identifier that every physician allowed by federal law to write prescriptions for such medication. The DEA has replaced the BNDD so many years ago that I guess BNDD just became the accepted standard term. Producing something with a BNDD number which every prescription pad & many physicians business cards have would be enough for any flight crew. I'm not taking sides on this because since I've been married to Snotnose we fly via any noncombat military flight that has room, I've flown commercial like maybe 15 times when I was small so I can't dispute what happened or what course was chosen by either party, like I said I wasn't there & I've learned that there are two sides to every story...then there's the truth.
I'm still laughing about the other night, poor Ausura, I know you had him blushing.
Geez, snot nose?!!? How affectionate. I take it he's in the air force
It's all in fun
