This is hilarious….

I could not stop laughing after I read this article….

“… The JetBlue flight attendant entered the elite pantheon of American heroes the morning of Aug. 9. The plane had just landed in New York City when a passenger attempted to snag his suitcase from his overhead compartment.

Slater, whose primary job is to ensure passengers abide by Federal Aviation Administration rules, not to act as a waiter/baby sitter, instructed the passenger to remain in her seat until given the OK to collect her belongings.

A struggle ensued during which Slater allegedly was hit in the head by the case, and the passenger hurled an expletive at the attendant.

Slater could not know he was about to spark a revolution when he used the plane’s public address system to announce he had eaten one bite of crap too many while on the job.

Legend has it, Slater thanked the respectful customers he’d served over the years before laying into his nemesis.

“To the m—————r who just told me to f—- off, f—- you. I’ve been in this business 20 years. And that’s it, I’m done,” Slater said.

Slater then grabbed two beers out of the fridge, activated the plane’s emergency chute and slid to freedom at just before noon. … “

…. I can totally understand this guy. Passengers are unbelivable, …and now Slater could be jailed for seven years…come on that’s ridiculous. What about the woman? How about arresting her for breaching on-board safety regulations. Nobody is talking about her risking other passenger life while opening the overhead bin….

Anyway, this guy made my day 😉



  1. I’ve always wanted to slide down one of those slides.
    Blog post for my thoughts on this whole mess http://monkeybusiness1.wordpress.com/2010/08/13/flight-attendant-steven-slater/

  2. by Gibson Hummingbird: I guess a lot of flight attendants would want to do that – hope that Slater can return to his job.

  3. Korean news made an awesome animation of the whole hissy fit:
