In life, we come across different kinds of personalities. Some are nice, even to strangers, while others choose to put on a stern demeanor most of the time. There may as well be a good reason behind someone's grumpy attitude but that doesn't always sit well with those on the receiving end of it. Recently, a video of a Delta Airlines pilot making a tyrannous speech with a grim face made rounds on the internet. Former cabin crew worker Jay Robert (@aflyguytravels), who is currently a blogger, shared this video on Instagram and in no time, it sparked debate on social media.

An unknown passenger had recorded the video, capturing the uncordial disposition of the Delta Airlines pilot. His strongly-worded speech began with him saying, "Everyone please look up here at your servant leader." Calling himself a "servant leader" the pilot gave off some dictatorship vibes and proceeded to put forward his instructions. Like a strict military officer, the pilot said that as a "captain of the ship," he had several responsibilities. "I'm responsible for the safety of my ship, my crew, my passengers, my cargo, but above all, the rules." He even maintained his grim personality throughout the speech, unlike most other pilots who start off on a friendly note.

"I wonder if this Delta captain is ex-military?" Robert captioned the video. At one point, the pilot almost commanded the passengers to "obey" the rules. "I need everyone to obey the seatbelt sign during the flight for your safety and the safety of everyone around you," he said. "I need everyone to obey the commands and the instructions of my flight attendants," he continued in a gruff manner and added, "And lastly, I ask that we all be respectful of one another." Robert couldn't help but wonder, "Is he going for a flight or to a war?" With over 157K views, this video grabbed diverse opinions. While some find the pilot unwelcoming others justified that his actions were based on experiencing some unruly passengers.

"Yikes. Unnecessary and narcissistic. The cockpit’s PA does the job without this unnecessary narcissistic behavior," wrote @dfinsta911. "This captain abused his power. He treated passengers like kindergartners. Oh and 'My flight attendants.' Oh, dear, you have some arrogancy issues," commented @betina.johnson51

"They’re tired of the poorly behaved pax. He’s making it clear from the start that he’s not going to put up with any nonsense onboard his plane. Good for him," lauded @wittyplatesintx. "I love this Captain. As a former Delta F/A, I loved that we had so many pilots who came out of the US Air Force. They may not have the best bedside manner, but they are qualified!" wrote @apageatl. "Have you seen the way some passengers treat the flight crew these days? I don’t mind a strong warning if it’ll keep the peace and have no shenanigans on board!" pointed out @pairodix.
