JetBlue Attendant's Emergency Exit
Steven Slater became working-class hero in late 2010 when he had a meltdown during an argument with a passenger on board a JetBlue flight parked at JFK airport. Though there are several versions of the story out there, it essentially goes like this: Slater grabbed a beer from the galley, told the passengers to f*** off via the intercom, popped the emergency slide, glided down to the tarmac, and went home. Not only was he fired, but he faced a litany of criminal charges; he eventually agreed to a plea bargain.
