Worst day ending slam of the season

Well Yesterday my day got cut short before lunch. First day that Ive given up that early due to a slam in years.
I was down at the bottom right before the lift line unstrapping area because it was crowded and I was trying to scope out a moron free zone where I could unstrap quickly and skip over to the singles line. Stopped for about 10 seconds when I suddenly saw the tip of a snowboard appear between my feet and then I got a very good look at the ground wearing a backpack shaped like a ToolBag. It wasnt some first day beginner or I would have been much more understanding. It was a guy that was probably 150lbs wearing a XXL jacket ridding a Pickle.
I get back up and he says "what the heck were you doing in my way?" Seriously? I was stopped 10' in front of a giant mob of people that were waiting to get on the lift. Well my knee is bruised up pretty good despite the fact that I was wearing knee pads and my right shoulder doesn't really cooperate very well. Only good that came of this is the bartender gave me a couple free beers. Now a couple days before the EC Meet Im already in rough shape. Of course that just makes me fit in better.

"What the heck were you doing in my way?" ??!??!?!!?

Did you ask him what it's like being the centre of the universe? Seriously, we're pretty down on violence in this forum, but there are times when someone needs their bell rung just to get their attention.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

There was a hilarious incident in the NFL about 15 years ago in which the Pittsburgh Steelers were erroneously penalized for having 12 players on the field. Thanks to the penalty, the other team was able to kick a field goal right before halftime. Steelers coach Bill Cowher froze a TV image of the field at the time the penalty was called; you could easily count the Steelers and see that there were only 11 of them on the field. Cowher printed a photo from the screen shot, and when the half ended, he ran over to the referee, yelled at him, and stuffed the photo into the ref's shirt pocket.

I think you should have taken a copy of the Code of Responsibility, circled the parts about always skiing/riding in control and the downhill person's having the right of way, and firmly placed it into the other gentleman's pocket.

Under the circumstances, I don't think anyone would have blamed you if you choked him out for being a douche.

Please tell me the douchenozzle at least got his pass yanked for that bullshit. I'm pretty understanding on the hill and not much of an advocate for pass snatching except in egregious situations, but the situation you just described certainly qualifies.

Seriously dude??? And what would happen if OP seriously hurt the kid when he was "ringing his bell"? It was obviously just an accident. Or even worse, what if the kid had a gun and pulled it on OP when he confronted him? Better to just get up, turn your cheek, brush yourself off and walk away thankful that no one got seriously hurt.

lol j/k, sound familiar? this thread wouldn't be complete without some mr. mom advice to keep it balanced.

+1 to what donutz said.

Impact damage to the face = problem solved.
And he could have hid a bazooka inside a refrigerator inside his gear so there is no telling what he had on him.
