Heroes and Villains

11 08 2010

In the last few days a story have caught my eye and I think it shows the true spirit of Human nature to stick the middle finger up at those who have abused, taken them for granted and just made their life miserable.

The story in question is about Steven Slater, the Jet Blue air attendant or steward for those of us in the UK, who was shouted at by a passenger on landing .  When called a “motherf**ker” and told to “F**k off” he was upset, and presumably having a bad day.

Grabbing the tannoy he made the following announcement  “To the passenger who called me a m—f–er, f— you,” following it up with “I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it.”

If that wasn’t a good enough way to go, what he did next was just inspired.  Grabbing a couple of cans of beer off of the cart he pulled the emergency chute cord setting off the big yellow slide, jumping out to his freedom.

Sadly for his brilliance he was arrested at his home for several crimes, one being Criminal Mischief.  I am sure that he will have the book thrown at him (see what I did there with my legal knowledge), but I have to salute you.

Why doesn’t my office have an escape chute?
