It is not a figment of your imagination. Some pilots are very cognizant
of giving passengers the best ride possible (while saving their company a
ton of money on brake jobs) and others are more interested on getting you
(and/or themselves) to the gate as quickly as possible. And I'm sure
there are a few who could care less about you being back there.
