    I want to know what the passenger did. It says that they hit or pushed him. Another article says they hit him with luggage. Is the passenger facing charges for assault?

    I think people can empathize with this guy because most of us fantasize about how we would quit our job with a flair of dramatics. This guy looks extremely relieved, from the camera shots on TV, to be unemployed along with his legal troubles.

      Classic. She is pretty hot, but it's just rude to label someone like that in a professional environment.

    That's hysterical!! I got fired "transferred to a dif. school) 1x when I was off my Ritilin (I was expecting) & I told another teacher off who reported me for wasting too much of the 4th grade budget by buying 2 boxes of paperclips! I said, "Well F*** me!" I could've said "F*** you!" but I was being nice! And I usually NEVER use swear words. Just popped out of my mouth in teacher's lounge. Hormones!

    So the debate is on... Is Steven SLater a hero or a jerk?

      Both, I don't think he should have done what he did so it makes him a jerk but I don't blame him. Maybe stuff like this will open up people's eyes though and make them realize that they should be nicer, which makes him a hero too.

      I also see this from both sides... I am sure a lot of people now wish they have emergency slides at their place of work..
      As a flight attendant you are trained to deal with all kinds of situations/passengers... You are trained basic customer support skills but I guess He had one altercation too many..

      Let's see how far his 15 min of fame gets him...
