Well, on the web today I came across two pretty cool stories about people quitting their jobs. The first was a gay flight attendant that apparently had enough:
Steven Slater, who was working on a Jet Blue flight at New York's Kennedy International Airport, was apparently the subject verbal abuse from a passenger who tried to prematurely retrieve his luggage.
As a result, Slater, 38, took to the aircraft's internal intercom where he made a public retort to the passenger, saying something akin to: "To the f***ing a**hole who told me to f**k off, it's been a good 28 years. I've had it. That's it!" – according to a source.
He then activated the plane's emergency slide, grabbed a beer from the beverage cart and alighted the carrier – much to the surprise of the remaining passengers and fellow crew.
Man, that's classic. I love the slide and beer part.
To top it all off, when the cops came to arrest this guy, he was BANGING HIS BOYFRIEND! Must of been the heat of the moment. So, that guy was pretty epic, but this next chick is just as awesome, just not as reckless. I found this story over on The Chive. Her name is Jenny and she quit her job by sending all of her fellow employees an email containing these pics:
That had to be the best email she ever sent. I hope she finds a job soon. As far as this post goes... I QUIT!!!!
Update 8/13/10: The girl quitting her job via email turned out to be a hoax!
