Now either this has to be the best exit from quitting a job or maybe in fact the worst.
You may in fact of already heard about this attendants, um, resignation, but in case not, here is a quick snapshot from the news.
please note he also did not leave before grabbing 2 beers.
So I started thinking, anyone have some Quitting, or even firing situations they can share?
Too Funny In The Heat Of The Moment For Anyone, I suppose if you let something build up enough???????????????????
I saw this on the news this morning!How freaking awesome was that. I say good for him!
Very funny! I guess this is the result of years of pent-up anger...
Yeah and now he faces 7 years in prison for his reaction to an unruly passenger that slammed his head with the door of the overhead compartment.
He could have had that passenger arrested. That would have been a better course of action for him.
I agree and that would be fair, but he'll also be out of a job.
Now that is for certain! lol
Just hope he doesn't become a taxi driver!!!
That would not be good! By the way, want to join the mile high club?
got my boarding pass ready!
seats at back of the plane of course !
Why not right up front in the middle of the aisle?
Cause the back is closer to the washrooms, front laboratory is too obvious and clearly for the stuck up first class people but then again we could fly first class?
Either way I only will take you for a ride in the mile high club over 60,000 feet, we're going International-Europe I suppose, doesn't matter where as long as it's a long long flight.
PS we must go commando!
Oh man! I've been in some scary taxi rides, in Mexico, Brazil, and yes NYC! Funny thing is they aren't angry when they drive that way.
Me and a friend once worked the 3rd shift at a cheese factory. It was a horrible place with machines breaking down, people getting hurt every day and so on.
If you really knew how that fancy cheese is made you would never eat it! High priced bricks of cheese float in a salt brine that tumble down to a table.
Often they fell off into oil and lube under the machines. We just sprayed them off with water and packaged them.
My friend was the top lead person of my crew, and she had enough one night. So at 1:00 AM on our break we both said "see ya" and walked out. There was not enough people to keep the shift running.
I've also walked out on jobs a few other times. Let the damn supervisor do it and see how they like it! I'm so glad I work for myself now.
I worked at a car lot. It was a sunny summer day and I was wearing sunglasses.
The manager came over and told me "You can't wear those glasses on the lot"
I checked for scratches on my face and told him in fact he was wrong I had no problem wearing the glasses.
He told me "Your not allowed to wear glasses unless they are prescription"
I turned around and walked up the street to my car.
The manager yelled "where the F@@@ do you think you are going."
I responded I am going home since I am not going to take the f@@@ing glasses off.
I wish I had a picture of the look on his face.
I actually walked across the street and got hired on the spot. I then used to stand, facing the lot with my glasses on.
I don't understand why everyone is applauding this mans actions. If you want to quit your job, then quit. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to determine when its time to quit a job.
As for the passenger who hit him in the head...I'm sure there are procedures to deal with something like this, and if there isn't then he would have been better off making sure procedures were put in place. I can't say I wouldn't have wanted to meet up with him in a dark alley somewhere, but still. There's a right way to do things and a wrong way. (2 wrongs don't make a right...)
This man also stole from his employer. Oh, sure. It was only 2 beers. Is that what you'd say to someone who stole $2,000? It was only $2,000! Stealing is stealing, no matter how you look at it.
Then he exited the plane by deploying the emergency slide. WTF?? Too impatient to wait for the stairs?
I personally think he should have quit on the spot, by sitting down and refusing to work. Then when the stairs were put in place he could have been the first one off.
There is a great difference between 2 beers and $2000.00. Also I dont think its fair to judge him sine we dont know everything that lead up to this.
I don't believe it's judging him, but holding him accountable for known actions.
Of course he pleaded not guilty, but his actions are not in dispute or won't be. What he will try to do is justify his actions as a result of what was done to him. Unfortunately that's going to prove to be a weak case. He'll probably take a plea, but I agree with Rafini, though I think hie emotions just got the better of him and he couldn't control himself.
i agree. he should have been arrested, which he was, and was unprofessional besides. and now he is trying to become some sort of folk hero? ugh
i would have written a hub about him but decided not to give him the press. the guy is an idiot.
After over 20 years of dealing with people's shit I say - good on him.
Having worked in retail for several years, I've been treated like the scum of the earth more than once, usually when the customer was at fault.
Other people I've worked with have been assaulted, had things thrown at them and worse.
Why is it that if you work in the customer service industry, it's alright to be treated like shit but the second we bite back we get in trouble?
It makes me wonder where you work... I've also worked in retail but had a positive experience almost every day. Sure there were some rude customers and some demanding customers, but honestly? You'll find rude and demanding people everywhere on this planet.
The worst experience I had was when I worked at a thrift store where we donated food, clothing, bedding, beds, and basic furniture - and some of the people we assisted were worse than the rude and demanding customers in a regular department store.
I think it's to do with getting along with others....
i used to be a bank teller when i was going to school. i did that job for two years and let me tell you, people get nasty when you refuse to give them their money, like, say, if they don't have enough to cover a check they are trying to cash and have exhausted their overdraft protection. they think they can just b!tch and moan at you and of course you just have to apologize and not give in, which makes them even madder. there was one older gentleman who was a real jerk. no one wanted to wait on him because he was so mean. one day he came to my window and of course he was really nasty because i wouldn't write his balance in his passbook. tellers are not allowed to write in the customer's passbook. so it was finals week and i had had very little sleep and here was this man who didn't know me screaming at me and calling me names and i just had to take it. that is what you do when you are in the service industry. people can't look cross-eyed at a flight attendant or they will get arrested but this guy can take over the plane's intercom system and use it to rant against his captive passengers? nope, i don't think so....
it was uncalled-for and uncool and i hope he is punished for it. if he gets away with it, we are essentially saying it's ok to mistreat your passengers. i mean, what if you were the passenger, how would you feel then?
We don't hear anything about the passenger getting punished, do we?
Like Alice Cooper says, It's The Little Things'
I know I can't beat that. I'm more the type to silently pack up what's mine, go home at the end of the day, and just disappear off the face of the Earth after that. (and then not answer my phone for a few weeks, of course).
Okay have a good story where my friend should have clearly been fired but wasn't, instead this is the best F**K you I ever heard
My friend is really kind, but one day was having a really frustrating day. Now he drives for the post office for a long time and i understand the term 'going postal' now.
So he's delivering in really hot weather near the airport and an elderly couple, in their 70's said, 'hello son, may you be as so kind to tell us how to get to the airport?'
He responded like an ass, 'fly there and call me when I care how to get anywhere, wherever your from' close to something like that. Bottom line he never helped this kind and lost elderly couple.
An hour went by and he was just waiting for the boss to radio him in, to fire him. No, nothing. Then a few days, nothing, He was in the clear for sure when a few weeks went by and still nothing from this elderly couple. Relieved at this point he didn't spend another minute
thinking about what a jerk he was, cause he really did feel bad?
And then it did come shortly after that and read;
Dear ***** (senior management)
I would like to express our gratitude to your company and want to tell you about a driver of yours.
We were somewhere in Toronto, while visiting, and so lost. Our flight was leaving very soon to Sweden and we certainly were worried.
We asked a driver of yours in a postal truck if he would mind helping us with directions to get to the airport.
I wish I knew his name, but his truck was numbered 52703. It was the middle of summer, we, both in our late 70s, waited for his response.
He ever so kindly, not only told us how long it would take us to arrive there, but actually drove us to the airport as well.
Please, Oh I hope you do reward this worker of yours for his unconditional kindness. We both have never seen anything or rather anyone working, help us out like that.
I beg you to give him this letter with our thanks, and hope you do compensate him accordingly. It would be wonderful to write us in return, to let us know what you do for him, for his kindness.
Sure enough he got a bonus, promotion and became a very valued employee.
LMAO, he still hates himself and feels so guilty. The company would not give my friend their address, he privately wanted to profusely apologize, but they knew the guilt would be much more effective than a letter that would have him fired.
I love that couple and laugh at his guilt still. I hope he 'got it' and seems he did, he will never do that again.
Brilliant couple. BRAVO!
Okay my friend, check this out. I found it because of Twitter, but that's another story, I will definitely tell you later if you wanna hear the sordid details, lol.
