Here’s the Problem: Quitting

Here’s the Problem:  Two news stories are making the rounds today about two fed-up employees quitting their jobs in unusual ways.  First, ex-flight attendant Steven Slater made a grand exit from  a JetBlue plane yesterday when a passenger pushed him too far.  He pulled the emergency alarm and slipped out via the inflatable shoot (but not before cursing out the aircraft and grabbing a couple beers).  Then, this chick put together a low-tech power point of sorts and told off her stinky breath boss to fuck off.    Both our subjects left their jobs with huge smiles on their faces.  A burden lifted – a new life ahead.

Actual Problem: I had something written about being an adult and how while these acts of irresponsible heroism are entertaining, they’re probably not well thought through.  But fuck that.  The actual problem – my intense jealousy.

  1. I am not amused at these antics at all. It’s not professional and will probably come back to haunt them. But I’m sure the girl, at least, will be offered a job somewhere.

  2. The JetBlue guy I’ll give a pass to because it sounds less premeditated and more “I’m mad as hell and can’t take it anymore”.

    This girl, however, annoys the hell out of me. It’s an arrogant, immature, attention grabbing stunt (if it is indeed real – I’m skeptical). She complains about being objectified but knows damn well she is attractive and clearly doesn’t mind having people look at her. See how many hits this would have gotten if it was an average looking dude.

  3. I think it’s funny as hell. 🙂
