I know when I worked for Positively No Communication and Bend Over America, there were times when a customer would set me off, a manager would utter some crapola, or my employees decided this was the day they wanted to regress all the way back to being toddlers. I maintained my cool (sometimes) and would work through the foolishness.
I had a manager who didn’t know her a$$ from her elbow. When she would hold our AM conference calls, I would spend the time thinking of ways to give the ultimate bird and quit.
Steven Slater has taken the crown and run with it.
After an uncooperative and rude passenger on a Jet Blue flight hit him in the head with her luggage, he snapped. He cussed a plane full of people out, grabbed a beer (crack in case of emergency!), deployed the plane’s emergency chute and slid away to the unemployment line.
But his saga doesn’t end there…he waited for, then got on an airport shuttle to get to his car.
Those shuttles are soooooooooooo slow. When the Mister and I went to Disney, we made at least five drops before we could depart at the Southwest terminal.
I’m being slightly sarcastic by calling him my hero. It’s actually sad that he chose to end his 20 plus year career in such a public way. According to Fox, his mama is dying of cancer, his dad recently passed away, and he’s having financial troubles.
That aside…what a way to go!
