Steven Slater is the Jet Blue flight attendant who, when faced with a passenger who stood up too soon after landing, a passenger who insisted on getting his luggage while the plane was still moving, told him to stop doing so. The passenger did not, swore at Mr. Slater and then cracked him on the head while getting said luggage down.
And where we must praise Mr. Slater is in his reaction to these events. Mad as hell just about does it.
For what he did was take to the intercom and roundly cuss out (in suitably florid language) the errant passenger, flip the switch to drop the escape slide and, pausing only to pick up a beer from the service trolley, slide down the chute, walk to his car and drive home.
There really are times when the only suitable reaction is \”Fuck you and the horse you rode in on\”.
So, for Mr. Steven Slater, soon to be an unemployed ex-Jet Blue flight attendant, this is for you.
Well done Sir!
