Tuesday To-Do: Aug. 10

If you’re looking for something uplifting to get you through the rest of the week, get ready to smile.

After being cussed out by a rude passenger and then hit on the head by the guy’s luggage yesterday, a JetBlue flight attendant returned the profanity favor via the plane’s PA system, announced he was quitting, then removed his tie, grabbed a couple of beers, popped one open, activated and slid down the emergency chute, and drove home.

He was later arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief, but was allegedly smiling the whole time. Some think it’s because he went home to have sex.

I say it’s because the man had just made job-quitting history. Wait, I take that back. The man just took job-quitting history, scratched out every name on the trophy, carved his initials into it with a fork, and tossed it down a bottomless well. Nobody, anywhere, will ever top that.

You need to toast this guy tonight. How about doing so while reminiscing a little? Marcy Playground is at George’s this evening and yes, I mean that Marcy Playground. They released a new album last summer, but if you’re lucky, they’ll play “Sex and Candy” over and over again. Tickets are $20.

Not interested in celebrating in Fayetteville? Built to Spill is in Little Rock tonight. Just sayin’.

I’m still a little freaked out by the flight attendant story, so the rest of this to-do list will be in … well … list format.
