Whether or not we want to admit it, most of us who have worked in customer service have fantasized about telling cranky customers exactly where to file their complaints.
Well Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater lived a similar fantasy Monday after a verbal altercation with a passenger.
According to sources, a passenger stood up to remove baggage from the overhead compartment while the plane was still taxiing to the airport terminal. When Slater asked the passenger to sit back down, the passenger refused and continued to remove his luggage. The luggage accidentally hit Slater. The passenger would not apologize and instead called Slater a four-letter-expletive.
This was enough for Slater to do what many have only dreamed of doing. He proceeded to express the same choice four-letter-word and announced he was quitting to everyone on board over the intercom. Slater then deployed the emergency slide, grabbed a few beers and slid to his freedom- at least for a little while. Port Authority police later arrested Slater for criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and criminal trespass
