Congratulations Mr. Slater

I congratulate Stephen Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant, who made an abrupt and unique departure from his plane this week.  I congratulate him not for his specific actions, but more for not taking the angry approach that some seem to be taking lately on their co-workers in the workplace.  Instead of taking a gun to work, he chose a spontaneous exit with a beer in hand.  The angry mob is made up of angry individuals.  It's up to each individual to "deal" with their specific situation in an appropriate manner.  Mr. Slater will be job hunting and might spend some time in the "slammer", but at least there won't be any funerals this week.  And, he brought a chuckle to many.  As Johnny Paycheck famously said "take this job and shove it".
