See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Cathy of Alex and I totally support Steven Slater...

How to leave a job in style!
.

"I think he just had a very small meltdown, and I think he deserved to be able to have that meltdown." - Steve's mom.
.
"I lost patience after a female passenger had an argument with another passenger and then opened the bin door, hitting me on the head without apologizing," Steve said.
.
In his announcement to passengers on the flight out of Pittsburgh, Slater referred to the woman as "the f-----g a--hole that told me to f--k off."
.
He then declared, "I've had it. That's it," witnesses said.
.
"He was trying to do his best in providing safety and you have rudeness and lack of courtesy among the traveling public," Steve's attorney said.
.
And then!  And then!  One flew over the cuckoo's nest.  - Story
.
Now what is more normal than that?
.
And who hasn't gotten fed up and left a job like that, right Cath?  (I actually did once - biggest regret of my life.  Anyway...) 
.
Free Steven Slater!  Free Steven Slater!  Free Steven Slater!  Free Steven Slater!  Free Steven Slater!  Free Steven Slater!




Oh - he got out of jail.  Well drop the charges and give him disability then.  
Steve's boyfriend.  Of all times to be boasting!  Sheesh!

    Steve's BF looks soooo Nathan Lane in that foto. OMG. Drama drama drama. Seriously, that is why I will not fly Southwest Airlines: open seating, rude pushy people and gum smacking 20 something girls with 5 bags and cellphone.

  2. I laughed and laughed when the story broke! They tell you specifically to STAY SEATED AND WAIT TO EMPTY THE OVERHEAD BINS.The passenger was clearly in the wrong.

    And the vision of Steve swooping down the slide with a beer - priceless!

    LarryD: LOLOLOL!!! If I'd been Steve, I'd have done the same thing. I really admire those who serve the public these days -- they eat more s***t than a herd of cows on any given day. God bless them and grant them ineffably unfathomable reservoirs of patience!

  6. Did you hear about that one girl who quit her job by taking a series pictures of herself, holding a dry erase board, detailing her reasons, then emailing them to everyone in the office?

    Apparently, quitting one's job with drama is in vogue. Better that way than shooting the place up.

  9. There's quitting with style and grace..

    And then there's burning bridges....

    When I narrow down resumes for potential interviews I ALWAYS call the previous employer...especially when resume's seem too good to be true..

    Yeah-- I'm THAT bitch :)

    That particular young lady may find it very difficult to get a job in the next few months..I sure wouldn't hire her. The gentleman also..

    Hope they both have well-padded savings accounts..they will need them...you don't get unemployment when you quit.

  10. Oh yes---I must share this..

    I got an awesome compliment at work today..my AF pilots I have been working with these past couple of weeks were having difficulty getting their laptop to connect up to our audio/visual system so that they could run a PowerPoint presentation. I scratched my head, did some thinking, and said "I'll be right back." Went to Radio Shack, got the right cables and adapters, hooked up their laptop and got them going..Presentation now on the big screen through the projector and sound through the house stereo system.

    Their guy in charge--a dreamy-looking tall bonde Major--looked straight into my eyes, smiled his toothy Tom Cruise smile, and said "Wow!! You're SO smart!! We have been fighting with this the past two weeks."

    (This guy also has a Masters in Aeronautical Engineering so he's pretty smart too :)

    Yeah guy--you can tell me I'm smart ANY DAY..." purr.. "

    Now if I was only about 15 years younger..he'd be in REAL trouble ;)

  12. Drama and histrionics. Two of my most favourite things. I can't control my emotions terribly well. My emotional thermostat is out of sync. I could cry now, thinking about it. ;)

    Sorry, I've been scarce but, yeah, you know the work week and all!
