“To the passenger who called me a (expletive), (expletive) you. I’ve been in the business 28 years. I’ve had it. That’s it.”F you suckers, grab and beer and deploy down the emergency chute for a getaway. Yes, the ultimate meltdown and he's in some serious trouble (and he's got some serious issues), but geez, what a story. Bet the passengers weren't reaching for their bags anymore after that. And imagine the look on this guy's face going down the slide with a beer in his hand. It's all right out of an episode of Seinfeld or a Mel Brooks movie.
Sources said Slater then grabbed some beer from the plane, deployed the inflatable slide, and took off in his car parked in an employee lot.
Reality will probably creep in during the next few days and lawsuits may even fly (pardon the pun), but for now just imagining this is hilarious. It brings to mind slides in general, and the last funniest slide I can recall was when Jerry Falwell slid down the waterslide at Jim Bakker's defunct Heritage amusement park...
Welcome Steve Slater to the comedy slide hall of fame..
