JetBlue and Professional Satisfaction

As the world now knows, JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater quit his job last week in the most outlandish way possible: Grabbing a beer and whooshing down the emergency slide to freedom.

What I found interesting about the whole thing was not Slater himself (although he sounds awesome - totally invited to my next birthday party), but rather the reaction the rest of us had. It was immediate, visceral, and overwhelmingly positive. He’s been called a hero.
