Three cheers for JetBlue attendant Steven Slater! When his plane touched down at JFK, an entitled douchebag removed his luggage from the overhead bin while it was still rolling to the gate. Slater told the jerk to wait but the jerk called Slater an asshole motherfucker and then hit Slater with his luggage.
Slater's handling of the situation is commendable:
Slater got on the plane’s public address system and yelled:
“To the passenger who called me a (expletive), (expletive) you. I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it.”
Sources said Slater then grabbed some beer from the plane, deployed the inflatable emergency slide, and took off in his car parked in an employee lot.
Instead of a ticker tape parade, Slater was arrested. No word on the fate of the jerk who started it.
