Steven Slater Ends Flight Attendant Career in Hilarious, Illegal Fashion

by at . Comments

After over two decades of dealing with rude airline passengers, Steven Slater finally lost it today.

The JetBlue flight attendant was aboard a recently-landed plane in New York's Kennedy Airport when a woman got up prematurely to remove her baggage from the overhead bin. Slater approached the individual, only to be conked in the head with the suitcase and told to "f-ck off."

He responded by getting on the intercom and saying: "To the f---ing a--hole who told me to f--- off, it's been a good 28 years. I've had it. That's it."

Slater then opened the emergency hatch, grabbed his two carry-on bags - and two beers! - and jumped down the inflatable airplane slide to safety. At least temporarily.

According to The New York Daily News, Port Authority police were alerted to the incident and showed up at Slater's home in Queens, where they found him in bed with his boyfriend. A neighbor says Slater was smiling as the cops walked him away in handcuffs.

He'll be charged with 2nd-and 4th-degree criminal mischief; 1st- and 2nd-degree reckless endangerment and criminal trespass in the 3rd degree; and faces up to seven years in jail.

Sources, and Slater's own MySpace page, confirm that he's battled substance abuse. His father also recently died and he's been taking care of his critically-ill mother. Both parents worked for the airline industry.

Let's all hope Steven Slater walks away from this altercation a free man. After all, as Phil Catelinet, a passenger on the flight, said afterward: "I wish we could all quit our jobs like that."

Slater is seriously deranged and should be court ordered to obtain psychiatric help in a institution. He should not have been working if he was so stressed, you would think his co-workers would have noticed some warning signs. The horrible woman, who told him to "fuck off" and then not apologize for hitting him in the head with her suitcase, should be banned from flighing on any airline & fined for obscene language in public, asault with malicious intent & careless recklessness (she also needs a hard kick in her bitchy rude self-centered ass). This happening is not funny in any way. Imagine how tramatized the other passengers were. Everyday millions of people lose loved ones while caring for another one, this behavior crossed the line by a mile. They should both pay for their out of control behavior. What if everyone reacted in these extreme ways and got away with it?
