New Entry in Urban Dictionary

Hit the slide: to quit one's job in truly stunning fashion.

I think everyone who has ever hated a job is secretly (or maybe not so secretly) cheering for Steven Slater.  The Washington Post is already predicting that the phrase "hit the slide" will be this generation's "blow this popsicle stand."

Lately I've been really waffling about whether to stay in my current job or look for a new one.  Maybe I should just hit the slide?!


  1. This story cracked me up! My husband used to work for JetBlue so anytime I see a headline about them, I look right away. Hit the slide, LOL!
    Maybe you should just hit the slide girl. Follow in Stephens footsteps. Well, maybe not exactly how he did it but you know what I mean. :)

    *Check out my blog, tag, you're it!

  2. Too funny. Hope you don't hit the slide and end up in jail, though :)
