By now you all probably know the story of the Jet Blue Flight Attendant, Steven Slater, who lost it and quit dramatically. The original story is here if you haven’t seen it. Basically, the story is that he allegedly had to deal with a very rude passenger who hit him in the head with luggage, swore at him, and refused to apologize. Slater then got on the PA system and swore and the comes my favorite part:
Slater is alleged to have then activated the plane’s inflatable emergency slide, grabbed two beers from the galley, then slid down the chute…
The guy knows how to make an exit! I love that he grabbed two beers first, the man clearly has his priorities! Now people are calling him a “Working Class Hero,” because who hasn’t thought of quitting in big way like that?
In some of my jobs I sure did! But while this story amuses me, I think Working Class Hero is going a little far. Although I might feel differently if I was a flight attendant!
So what do you think?
