Steven Slater, a flight attendant for JetBlue, recently decided he’d had enough when a passenger accidentally decked him with luggage while trying to remove it from an overhead compartment. According to “an airport official with knowledge of the incident”, Slater demanded an apology, and when the passenger refused, an argument erupted that ended with the passenger telling Slater to â€œfâ€” offâ€. At this point Slater made his way to the PA system and made the following announcement:
To the passenger who called me a mâ€”-fâ€”er, fâ€”- you, I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it.
Apparently Slater then activated the planeâ€™s inflatable emergency slide and made his getaway, but not before grabbing two beers from the galley. He was picked up later by authorities and charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. Although NBC New York reports that he could get up to seven years behind bars, his exploits have probably earned him immortality in aviation circles. However, that may not be a good thing.
