Flight steward swears, uses chute and leaves

If you're a regular commuter via Britain's national or international air-ways, you're probably sick to death of the sight of numerous demonstrations of how to fix your own oxygen mask before attending to others. Air stewards and stewardesses the world over, who have to perform this ritual several times a day, are a stoical bunch. Not so, for one attendant however, whose last day at work involved swearing at a passenger and activating the emergency chute.

Disgruntled JetBlue steward Steven Slater decided to call it a day when a piece of dislodged luggage struck him on the head as passengers prepared to disembark from a flight from Pittsburgh to New York, the Daily Mail reports.

After the incident, Slater said 'To the passenger who called me a mother-f***er, f*** you. I’ve been in this business 28 years. And that’s it, I’m done. Then, pausing only remove his airline tie and to grab himself a beer, he deployed the emergency slide and made his exit'.

However, he was arrested and charged by the New York Port Authority with 'criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and trespassing.'

What a way to win the admiration of a Youtube generation though!
