Free Steve Slater

Beer in hand, Steve Slater makes his exit from the Airline Industry.

While mercifully a far less deadly workplace "rampage" than the tragic events in Connecticut last week, we could see more and more of this as "early adopters" of the continuing wave of negative mood pop off, both literally and figuratively. What's more intriguing is that he has rapidly become on online hero. Having worked retail for several years back in the early 1990's, I deeply, deeply sympathize with him. Good luck to him and here's hoping future incidents like this are confined to dramatic exits, maybe computer hacks, but nothing deadly...

I'm confused. How can one trespass at one's workplace while still technically employed and on the job? Are the authorities simply making up charges in order to apprehend this man for losing his temper in public? Hmm. What am I saying. Of course they are. The peons can't be allowed to show their true feelings. It's too much like furniture suddenly developing the capacity to speak. It freaks out the owners. Furniture is for sitting upon.
