Count the Blog Break crew among those who think former JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater could have handled his self-promotion to customer with a little more dignity.
In case you missed it, Slater quit his job on Monday – via the aircraft’s public address system and inflatable exit slide – after a dustup with an uncooperative passenger. He even managed to swipe some beer from the plane’s galley along the way.
The meltdown earned him immediate hero status among many people, particularly fellow flight attendants and those who have fantasized about quitting their job with a bang. Others though wisely caution would-be copycats from pulling off their own great escape. Criminal charges aside, employment experts suggest that Slater’s infamous stunt might land him on many companies’ no-hire list.
What do you think about Steven Slater? Is he a hero or an agitator? Would you want to work with him?
