I've been there
So many times in my career I've wanted to do what Steven Slater did.
So. Many. Times.
When I was harassed for not bringing the meals out fast enough.
When I had my foot rolled over by an over sized bag for the fifth time that morning.
When I was dog tired from many hours of being on my feet and the person couldn't be bothered to answer me by looking at me because his laptop/blackberry/whatever is more important.
When I was almost beaten up in the back of a 747 on our way to Tokyo by a drunken passenger.
When I was called bi*ch to my face.
When I was harassed for 12 hours from Tokyo back to Chicago because I informed someone about a safety regulation during boarding and they took it VERY personally.
When I had to arrest someone.
When I had to arrest someone again.
I've been there.
I certainly have.
So, here's to Steven and his future, whatever that may be...
Bravo Steven, the problem was brewing underneath, and you actually had the guts to take it to the next level.
Good luck, and as you can see from the support you have gotten, many of us agree with you.
I love my job, but I'm not a doormat.
That is all.
