If You’re Going to Get Fired …

you might as well go out in style:

A JetBlue flight attendant apparently upset with an uncooperative passenger on a just-landed flight unleashed a profanity-laden tirade on the public-address system, pulled the emergency-exit chute, slid off the plane and fled Kennedy International Airport, a law enforcement official said.

I’d say that qualifies. Apparently the guy stole a few beers from the plane to take with him on his slide to the unemployment line too. Icing for the cake.

    My hero! I’ve wanted to do that many times. And JetBlue is one of the better carriers.

    And apparently when they went to his house to arrest him, he was “engaged in sexual relations”. I don’t know why the CBS affiliate in NYC felt the need to add that, but I think it kind of adds to the overall awesomeness of the story.

    He topped off a most spectacular “Take this job and shove it” by going home to roger his wife or girlfriend roundly? This fricking guy deserves a TV movie or something.
    Hell give him a talk show too. There are a lot of stupid mothers out there that need to get cussed at over a loadspeaker.

    Heh. Loudspeaker.

    Well a cool gay talk show host then.

    Word has it they used a SWAT team to bring him in.

    …I wish I was surprised by that data!

    If I had any 3D modeling ability…. I’d add the flight crew escape feature to the Embrarer jets on X-Plane in honor of this guy.
