Fuck You, Fuck You, Fuck You, You're Kinda Cool....

and fuck you, I'm out!

Aside from Julio quitting his job flipping burgers in Half Baked, this guy had the second best departure from a place of employment, ever.

Since obviously there is no video footage of the wonderful incident, allow this picture of Steven Slater to suffice.

Slater, a veteran flight attendant of 20 years, finally had enough when a rude and defiant passenger stood up to removed his baggage as their plane had just landed. Slater approached the man and explained he needed to remain seated until it was clear. The man refused and swung his back out of the overhead compartment, striking Slater in the face. When Slater asked for an apology, the man refused and instead began cursing at Slater. This is where it gets good.

Slater retreated and ran for the public address intercom and proceeded to curse the man out. However, that wasn't enough, Slater then released the emergency evacuation door handle and activated the inflatable slide. And in perhaps the most intuitively genius maneuver, Slater grabbed a beer from the beverage cart as he exited. He then ran to the employee parking lot and drove away.

Congratulations Mr. Slater, you may not be able to pay rent next month but at least you stood up for what you believed in. And hey, maybe the authorities will let this one slide.
