Excellent Folk Song Lionizes Folk Hero Steven Slater

by on August 12, 2010

You have to check out The Ballad of Steven Slater, our hero JetBlue flight attendant, who quit in mighty style.

Some memorable lyrics to go with a nicely done acoustic guitar tune and a good voice:

“He flipped a latch, out the hatch, and down the slide, and he drove home to sleep by his boyfriends side.”

And the chorus: “Fuck you, fuck all of you, I’m fucking through with this, yeah, I’ve had it. I’ve been doing this for 20 fucking years. I can’t take it any more. And for the fucking asshole who told me to fuck off…fuck you, that’s it I’m done. Fuck you all.”

It’s not as mean spirited as it sounds there. Just listen to it. It’s good and inspiring.

Here’s a good summary of the entire story,  if you happened to miss what happened.

I know that this song inspires you so much that you need to get a shirt to commemorate this wonderful sticking it to the man. You need the Quit Your Job with Style: Team Slater T Shirt.

– I love when I read your posts and I get a reminder on petrsecpive we all need to take that step back sometimes and recognize the real, good things. It all comes down to a crock of beans anyway.Oh! And I have to say, after following you on pinterest and everything I think we align very well with music taste/celebrity worship such as neil young, bob dylan, robert redford, etc anyway, just thought I had to let you know I love your taste (food and otherwise, haha).
