I don't know what to think of this. I wouldn't say he's a hero, because he didn't save lives or anything. Yes, I could understand why he snapped. I worked in retail in my college years and there were certainly days when I felt like doing what this guy did.

But the thing is, I had the ability to get a different job. Why didn't this flight attendant get a new job if he hated this one so much?

The guy is 100 per cent wrong.

He should lose his job. Nothing heroic or funny about his behavior.

If you wanted to quit, he should have waited to deplane with everyone else, and quit his job.

If nothing else, he proved he is as big of an ass as any of the passengers he may want to complain about.

JetBlue Attendant Held on Bail as His Lawyer Offers Details of Flight
By ANDY NEWMAN AND MICK MEENAN

Steven Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant who activated an exit chute on a just-landed plane at Kennedy International Airport after a dispute with a passenger Monday and slid to notoriety, did not post the $2,500 bail set by a judge at his arraignment Tuesday morning and remains in custody.

At the arraignment on felony charges of reckless endangerment and criminal mischief in a packed room in the basement of criminal court in Queens, Mr. Slater’s court-appointed lawyer, Howard Turman, said that Mr. Slater’s activation of the slide was not reckless. He said Mr. Slater followed the proper procedure for activating the slide, checking out the window first to make sure no one was on the tarmac who could be struck by it.

Mr. Turman, of the Legal Aid Society, offered an account of the flight, JetBlue 1052 from Pittsburgh, that he said justified Mr. Slater’s actions. He told reporters aid that on the ground in Pittsburgh, a female passenger had been verbally and physically abusive to Mr. Slater when he intervened as she squabbled with a male passenger over access to the overhead luggage compartment.

“The woman initially at Pittsburgh slammed the overhead into his head,” Mr. Turman said of Mr. Slater.

A passenger on the flight, Greg Kanczes, said that he saw a large, fresh-looking gash on Mr. Slater’s forehead at the beginning of the flight. “It was about and inch-and-half long, and it was a big red mark or cut,” Mr. Kanczes said by phone Tuesday. “There was no bandage.”

In previous accounts offered by the authorities, Mr. Slater’s main altercation with the passenger had come at the end of the flight, not the beginning, with the passenger pulling a bag out of the overhead compartment that struck Mr. Slater in the head. The version offered by Mr. Turman indicates a longer-brewing conflict between the two parties.

Mr. Turman said that on the ground at Kennedy, the female passenger “was outraged and cursing” at Mr. Slater, who “wanted to avoid a conflict.”

Law enforcement officials said that after the passenger cursed at Mr. Slater, he grabbed the intercom, cursed her out, bid passengers goodbye, grabbed a beer, and activated the inflatable exit chute.

When asked why Mr. Slater chose to go avoid the conflict by taking the emergency slide, Mr. Turman replied, “It was right there.”

i hope she gets prosecuted for failing to follow a crew members instructions, just because she's clearly a bitch.

Wow, this is the quitting story that everybody should be talking about today. Awesome. Although the visual aids certainly help. I'm sure if there was video of this JetBlue dude actually grabbing a beer and sliding out of the plane screaming "SUCK IT, BITCHES!" or whatever he said, it would be even cooler. But, damn. This girl is a charmer. She's got the nice handwriting and the facial expressions down to a science. Good for her.

Jenny is awesome.

As for Slater, yeah, he deserved what he got. But I can't really be mad at him for some reason.

I'm a very even-tempered person and generally don't act out, but I remember once while working at a grocery store in college when I accidentally bumped a customer with a cart--just a light bump but a bump. I immediately apologized but he just went crazy on me, cursing at me and threatening to "put me through a fucking wall." I looked at him and said, "I said I'm sorry, asshole!" and stalked off. My boss heard the whole thing but later told me he had no problem with what I did.

Of course that's nowhere near what Slater did, but I do understand reaching that moment when enough is enough.

Too bad. But still quite funny.

Damn, that sucks.

It does make sense, though. Her combination of looks and skillz at conveying thought and emotion with her expressions should definitely have signaled that she was an actress of some sort. Too good to be true.
