(CNN) - At one time or another most people have found themselves in job they loathe, but few would have quit in such spectacular style as flight attendant Steven Slater.
After being inflamed by a passenger's failure to apologise for banging him on the head with a suitcase, authorities say the Jet Blue steward grabbed a beer and triggered an inflatable emergency chute for his dramatic exit from the plane, and employment, at a JFK Airport terminal in New York.
And that was only after he shared a few expletive-filled words with the entire cabin over the intercom. New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly but it delicately when it said it appeared Slater was quitting during his intercom flameout.
