If you were in hibernation during the last 24-hour news cycle, you may have missed the story about Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater, who was mad as hell and wasn't gonna take it anymore. A passenger got up and opened the overhead bin before the plane had come to a complete stop and the seatbelt sign had been turned off. The attendant got up to get the passenger back in his seat, in the process getting clonked on the head by the passenger's falling luggage. Many expletives ensued and the attendant did what anyone would have done. He grabbed a beer from the galley, got on the microphone and told the passengers what he thought of the dope who was out of his seat, unlocked the evacuation slide and took off feet first in one of the grandest exits ever made from a career.
This guy does not need Jet Blue. He needs an agent and some entrepreneurial ideas. He could make more money in the next year as a business person than he made in his 20 years as a flight attendant.
So let's give Steven a head start. What do you think he should do to capitalize on this opportunity? Make "Deploy the Slide!" t-shirts? Speaker circuit? Reality TV show? Let's get creative and hear your ideas!
