Steven Slater has just won the award for best exit by a flight attendant after being verbally abused by a passenger. The JetBlue flight attendant was so pissed off by a passenger telling him to “fuck off” he started yelling obscenities over the public address system before grabbing two beers and exiting via the inflatable emergency slide. After flying down the slide he ran across the tarmac to the staff car park, jumped in his Jeep Wrangler and took off home. Ta-da. The melt down started after he told a passenger not to remove baggage from the overhead compartment. The passenger told him to “fuck off” and opened the compartment anyway, which whacked Slater on the head. After the plane pulled up to the terminal Slater let rip, screaming “To the fucking asshole that told me to fuck off, it’s been a good 28 years!” before grabbing the beers and pulling the emergency lever. It’s believed Slater’s father died from Lou Gehrig’s disease two years ago and he is currently living with his cancer stricken mom. Slater was arrested by the Port Authority.
Psst I sure hope there is surveillance footage. What a hoot!
