United employees accused of popping slides for no good reason

Date: 13 May 2012
Airline: United, flight 1098
Location: Houston, TX

I am outraged that my flight to Houston scheduled to leave at 5:01 after a 4 hour layover was sabatoged by a United employee on the arriving flight, at the gate. A mechanical delay was announced. A United employee whispered that a slide had been deployed, on the A320, at the gate following landing.

I went to the service desk and was told the plane probably would not fly until the next day and was told that this was the third slide deployment at the airport by a United employee. This is outragious, and a terrorist act as the employees are damaging and disabling airplanes.

I was scheduled to land in Lake Charles, LA at 10:55PM Sunday evening for an interview the following morning. I was forced to take a flight to New Orleans, LA which arrived after midnight and drive three hours to Lake Charles, LA arriving 3:30AM Monday morning. These United employees seem to face no consequences of their actions, but look how their actions impacted
... just me. I am outraged and want action taken against United and the terrorists!
