Make My Day

Every day that I worked at UPS I thought about how I would make my grand exit if I were to quit. Here is somebody who acted out that fantasy. I love this story…

Think you’re having a bad day?

Police say a JetBlue flight attendant who got into an altercation with a passenger on a plane arriving in New York City and deployed an emergency exit slide so he could flee has been arrested.

They say Steven Slater was arrested on charges including criminal mischief and reckless endangerment following Monday’s incident at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Slater faces up to 7 years in prison if convicted, according to WNBC.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police say Slater was working on a JetBlue Airways Corp. flight from Pittsburgh when he got into a heated argument with the passenger about baggage. They say as the plane was landing Slater used the public-address system to berate the passenger. They say he then activated the slide, slid down and went to his car.

The New York Daily News reported that he took over the intercom and called the passenger a 12-letter epithet beginning with m and then told everyone, “I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it.”

The JetBlue Embraer 190 had just arrived at JFK from Pittsburgh.
