Flight Attendant Goes Postal (err)

Now, if anyone is going to go out in style, follow the lead of Steven Slater. The 20 plus veteran flight attendant for Jet Blue had enough earlier today after dealing with a rotten customer. After getting hit on the forehead with the overhead compartment by a rude customer, he told the entire plan to “Fuck off” over the loud speaker (I’m sure that’s not in the seat back guide in front of you),  grabbed a few brewskies on the house (they’re expensive anyway), slid down an emergency water slide (as if they ever get any use otherwise), and high tailed the fuck outta there.

How many times did you want to leave work like that? If you say never, you’ve either never been employed or lying. Customers just have a way of getting under the skin of those working to please them because, well, they don’t expect the person to go crazy. I believe it’s something regarding being able to treat someone like crap, and not get punched in the face in return mentality. Someone sees someone else working and automatically things they can get away with 10x more bullshit than someone off the street. I bet you’ll think again before yelling at a person in the field of customer service after this!

Does it hurt people to show a little common courtesy and respect to someone who is otherwise trying to serve you? I mean, it’s not that they WANT you to have a good experience. Let’s face it, they really don’t fucking care about you or your experience, at the end of the day they just WANT a paycheck. No one wants to hear you complain about how horrible your experience was, especially the measly worker who can’t do anything about it, nor do they care for your attitude, either. Where in anyone’s right mind do they think they can get away with treating someone like an utter piece of garbage? I want the name of that person! I bet you they have a shitty customer service job themselves.

Working with people will drive you near close to borderline insane (or, in Steven Slater’s case, literally insane). Everyone has this mentality that the customer is always right. News flash! The big corporations just want you to think that, don’t get all comfortable in your little invisible bubble. In the end, you, your opinion and your experience don’t fucking matter, deal with it and move on.

Is it so hard to be respectful to everyone, regardless if they are in the position to serve you. You’d be fucking crazy to do anything but.  Especially now.

Thanks, Steven Slater, for doing something 99% of the working class dream up of doing every single day.

    This is a sad world we live in! Stop giving this guy the attention. He should be thrown in jail for his reckless behavior!

    Just dealt with a customer today on the phone. Working for customer service over the phone sucks. I guess anonymity + dealing with a customer service rep = excuse to be an asshole.

    Anyway, the customer wanted a $5 maintenance fee on her account returned because “she has a lot of money in the bank and doesn’t deserve such a fee.” Well, bitch, you ain’t that rich if you’re complaining over 5 bucks!

    I want to change the word “good night boss” with “fuck off” I don’t think those passengers paid enough for that flight. They got live entertainment too.
