Steven Slater - Smug Little Shit

Steven Slater on a good day

You may have heard about the Jet Blue flight attendant who grabbed a beer, pulled the emergency handle and slid down the slide because he couldn't handle his job.

Well I know that you trolley dollys have to deal with annoying and pompous customers on a daily basis, but that is part of your job description. I really don't care if your gay lover broke up with you to be with a Columbian cartel leader, or if your mother's ingrowing toenail is turning septic. Your job is to smile and walk the length of the plane offering 'tea or coffee?'.

I am sorry you were having a bad day, but to inconvenience the entire airport and put paying passenger's lives in danger to pull a half-witted stunt like that then you deserve to be arrested and charged.

Why the popular media is canonizing you and turning you into a modern day folk hero, I don't know. What would have happened if you did this at 20,000 ft?

Steven Slater, enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. When it is over, you will be relegated to obscurity until the next time Jet Blue is in the news.
