If anyone was at KMKE in Chicago this evening, I apologize for the uncountable amount of “correction, stand bys…”
Apparently, the shortcut menu in my ATC taskbar is flipping the commands at random… especially during the worst of times. Another controller and I were having the same issue this evening, and the both of us were baffled… One runway crossing request would change into pushback, and so forth… It wasn’t from the usage of commands being bumped up- that much I can tell you.
I seriously swear- without any input from my fingers- the commands were literally switching by themselves… Matt McDonald from IFFG can confirm this, as he was controlling at a field nearby during this time.
Thanks to those who came out, though. If you all were in my position, I’m sure the baffling fliparounds would be confusing to you as well… :/
