Some stories are even better than an urban myth. Steven Slater, that JetBlue Flight attendant who blew his stack at a passenger (an “I’m mad as hell” moment that will go down in history, (pun intended) was arrested at home, in bed with his boyfriend. First he blew his stack at a passenger, then he went home and blew…well, you get the picture!
via the NY Daily News:
The plane had just landed, but he was ready to take off.
A JetBlue flight attendant blew his top, grabbed some beer and bolted out an emergency slide at Kennedy Airport Monday – then headed home to have sex with his boyfriend.
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.
After tossing his two carry-on bags on the slide, he followed them to the tarmac.
Slater – who actually first started working for airlines 20 years ago, not 28 – then walked to the AirTrain, stripped off his company tie and flung it off as bemused passengers watched.
