As Paul reported yesterday, a JetBlue flight attendant finally got fed up with being jostled around by rude passengers, cussed one out, and then activated the inflatable slide to escape. YESSS!!! Naturally, a story like this needs further elaboration, so here you go. From Gawker:
The altercation culminated in him announcing over the plane intercom, "To the fucking asshole who told me to fuck off, it's been a good 28 years. I've had it. That's it," then grabbed two beers from the galley, activated the jet's inflatable slide, and bolted off the job. The content of Slater's rant remains in dispute: Some say he called the passenger a "motherfucker" instead of an "asshole," and others dispute who told whom to "fuck off." (And although he seemed to suggest he'd been working as a flight attendant for 28 years, he started working for the airlines 20 years ago.)
Here's where it goes from awesome to... what? AWESOME!!
As soon as the surly steward arrived at his beachfront home in the Rockaways, he jumped into bed with his boyfriend, and was mid-coitus when the police arrived to arrest him for reckless endangerment and trespassing.
Read more here about the attendant who could receive 7 years in prison for being awesome (though I would prefer if he were knighted).
