New York Daily News reports on the unexpected exit of a Jet Blue flight attendant:
After he was bonked in the head by a bag, Steven Slater stunned passengers by spewing profanity and ranting about quitting as the flight from Pittsburgh pulled up to the gate about noon.
“To the f——-g a—hole who told me to f—k off, it’s been a good 28 years,” Slater, 38, purred, cops said. “I’ve had it. That’s it,” he added, a passenger said.
The mad-as-hell steward grabbed a couple of brewskis and popped one open before activating the emergency exit, witnesses told airport employees.
If you’re gonna go out, might as well be in a blaze of glory. Sliding down a jet’s emergency slide with an open beer plus one for the road definitely qualifies.
