Jet Blue Flight attendant Steven Slater Jumps off the Plane

Do you think Steven Slater is a hero or just a nut job? He had over 20 years in the industry, the way he flew the coop would seem like a huge loss for him. How many times a day do you feel like pulling a Slater at your job? I would think the majority of us would love to do what he did if we had the balls to do it. If their were no consequences how would you love to take your job and shove it?

I think that even though he broke the law the way he did it was so classic that he should be given the lightest of sentences or fines. Granted it was dangerous and illegal but no one was harmed except him. I would love to hear the other side of the story from the customer who supposedly made him through his career away for being so rude.


  1. Thought this story was ok, the fact he did quit the way did. Not sure it deserves all the coverage it's getting though.

    I had a chance once to burn a bridge and I took it.

    Was working at a HORRIBLE company that was run as if it were still 1930. I found employment elsewhere and one day while I was workign otu my "2 week notice" I just had enough.

    Grabbed my stuff, walked into the bosses office, told her " I can't take this crap job anymore, I can't you anymore, good luck, hope you decide to shower soon" and walked out.

    On the way out the "controller" stopped me to conduct an exit interview, lmao. Felt good to give a little back. Left with about 3 weeks of paperwork piled up, all my files password protected(company policy) it was not policy to share your password with the I.T. Department, roflmfao.

    This place was horrible. I had 2 deaths in my family while I was in the first 60 days of employment, told them I want no pay for the days missed, just needed the time off for the funerals. When my 90 days was up they had the balls to tell me they weren't sure if I really had people die in my family. So they made me do another 90 day probation period. "Hopefully no one will die in the next 90 days, ha ha". Assholes.

  2. Congrats on your site. I'm now following it. As for Slater, I think too many have rushed to anoint him a hero, without knowing all the facts.
