We have all been inundated by the in-your-face-reports on the Jet Blue Flight Attendant who lost it when a rude passenger hit him on the head and failed to apologize. This story speaks to the decline of our society on so many levels.
First, we all deal with rude people on a day to day basis. Normally, we either ignore the abuse or we say something to the rude person and walk away. Today, people are resorting to violence. How many people have died in the past year thanks to disgruntled co-workers?
Second, rude people need a wake up call. Walking away from rude behavior is a mistake. Rude people need to hear that they are rude. Point out the behavior and it will most likely stop. Life is too short to be mistreated by anyone.
Third, Steven Slater did not have a "little meltdown", it was a major meltdown that resulted in a criminal act. Someone could have been seriously injured or killed at the moment he hurled the door open and deployed the slide.
Fourth, mainstream media and thousands of fed up Americans are making this guy out to be a hero!!! How exactly did that happen?
Fifth, prosecutors will not throw the book at him for his reckless actions because they do not want the press that this case would bring!!!!!
Sixth, this guy went from obscurity to fame in a matter of seconds. Now, he'll be all over reality TV. Only in America.
