Slater (the fed up flight attendant) has become an overnight symbol of the fed-up wage slave who's just not going to take it anymore.

Nope, not from what I have read:

He said as he got up to get his bags, the flight attendant swore at the passenger over the intercom, saying the passenger had cursed at him first. He added, "I've been in this business 28 years and I've had it," according to Catelinet's blog.

Prosecutors said Slater, the son of an airline pilot, cursed out an agitated traveler over the plane's intercom Monday before grabbing some beer from the plane’s galley and going down the emergency slide at Kennedy Airport.

Again, you just don't know.



I didn't say I know what will happen, lol. I gave what I believe is a likely scenario.

The op was stating how they had an easier job than her dh.



If you are speaking about me, I did not say that. I said it is reasonable to compare the frustration level of a flight attendant to that of a frequent business traveler.

I checked a couple of sites and they gave 56K as a median income for flight attendants. He's been working awhile, so it doesn't seem impossible for him to have been making in the neighborhood of 50K.

He had a gash on his head? Oooo...temporary insanity caused by a blow to the head. Yeah, the future is looking better for this guy all the time.

The traveler is the customer though. The flight attendant is doing a job.
Why does your husband travel so much? I have a friend who travels a few times a week but I have never heard him complain about the traveling part.

Oh, I am sure that there are talk shows and "news" shows and that sort of circuit who will be happy to pay to talk with the man.

For where he lives, that doesn't sound much but, we don't know what his wife does either.

Nah, I just read the story online. I hope he finds a good, publicity-hungry lawyer who could have a whole lot of fun with this case.
