Looks like he had gotten sick of his job before the meltdown!
Our new hero, JetBlue Diva Steven Slater, was allegedly a flight attendant for TWA and then Delta from 1997-2002! According to his resume, he also worked as a Burberry Accessories Shop Manager at Bloomingdale's, and from what we can gather on his Myspace profile, he seems like a pretty normal, well-adjusted guy!
His profile reads:
"Well howdy friends and loved ones! Thanks for stopping by my little piece 'o the web! Chances are I am flying 35, 000 feet somewhere over the rainbow on my way to some semi-fabulous JetBlue Airways destination! Truly, some are better than others. But I am enjoying being back in the skies and seeing them all.
Back flying after five years off the job and having a ball. If I am on the ground, I am probably in my humble home in the 'burbs doing something domestic and trite like vacuuming. Or dining, as I just love to dine. Which leads to the gym, to offset the dining. Big fan of sand and sun, I am often found on the beach or in a park, anywhere I can catch some exercise and a few rays. My airline affiliation allows me amazing travel privileges, and I love to max it out with trips around the world, sometimes on a moment's notice! Let's go!”
He also posts pictures like the one above, which make him more and more obsessed!
This guy is HARDCORE! LOLs!
Slater is due in court September 7th - keep your head up, bb! There's a lot of people who have your back!
