    Most of us will probably never pull a Steven Slater: curse out a customer, grab a drink and leave our place of employment in a blaze of glory.

    But let’s face it, we’ve all had the urge.

    Slater, a flight attendant on JetBlue, instantly became a folk hero in many people’s eyes Monday after he grabbed a microphone and ranted at a passenger who had refused to apologize for hitting Slater with some luggage. Slater then grabbed a beer from the galley and fled the plane via the emergency exit chute.

    After rant, many see JetBlue worker as hero - Business - Careers - msnbc.com

    I will be the first on record to say that I've never had the desire to do any of that.

    leave it to a libturd.. Slater is slated for jail methinks.. some freaking hero but then the obie wan people had a Che' picture on their wall so go figure..:lol::lol: and furthurmore I doubt a passenger hit him with luggage. That is a federal offense and said passenger would be in custody. Is he?

    Truth be told, I can see why he got fired. But arrested? WHY??

    Yeah, yeah, I heard the charges against him. LAME.

    No, pretty sure I would have faced a court martial for such childish behavior. Not surprised Rinata worships the fool though. I'm sure her only regret is that the guy didn't call the customer a racist.
