Don’t you wish there was an eject button at work?
Think you’re having a bad day at work? Then spare a minute for Steven Slater, a Californian flight attendant who made a beeline for the airline shute after an argument with a passenger.
News.com.au reports things got heavy after passenger told Slater to “f-off” when he asked them not to take luggage from the overhead compartment as the plane was moving across the tarmac. An angry Slater responded by grabbing the plane’s public-address system and screaming: “To the f***ing assh**e that told me to f*** off, it’s been a good 28 years!” before taking two beers from the fridge and jumping out of the plane via the inflatible emergency chute.
The airline are said to be investigating the incident but Slater’s friends remain concerned for his well-being: ‘I can’t believe Steve’s on the run,” said one. “He’s like OJ Simpson. He must have snapped.”
Here’s hoping Slater will be found in one piece -but you’ve got to hand it to the guy for refusing to take a bad day lying down.
