When I heard that flight attendant Steven Slater activated the inflatable slide in order to flee the Jet Blue plane he was working on I thought to myself, “Good God, that man is my hero. That man is AMERICA’S hero.”
According to the New York Daily News:
“To the fucking asshole who told me to fuck 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.
After tossing his two carry-on bags on the slide, he followed them to the tarmac.
