Why did Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater’s wild job exit last week [insert Paul Simon’s ‘Slip Slidin’ Away’ here] capture the imagination of the entire country? Are you kidding?! Who hasn’t dreamt of leaving a “job from hell” in a really dramatic fashion — especially those who work with the ever-entitled public!
Watch out, be careful and on high alert – it can happen anywhere and anytime…your mood can be poisoned. You can be zipping along enjoying your day and run across a jerky person and WHAM! Instantly you are in a foul mood. Sometimes this lasts for about an hour. Other times it can last days, months or even YEARS. You know you have mood poisoning when “things just aren’t that funny” anymore, criticizing others becomes a sport, and you have an uncanny urge to slap happy people.
