was i being a dick?

A week or two ago, I was in the terrain park and everytime i would pass these kids they'd start talking s*** to me. I was fine with that, i can deal with those types of people. The next run i went down they were standing on top of this box just staying there and laughng at the line of people behind them waiting to jib it. After about five minutes of that, i started to get really pissed so i came in going pretty fast and decked the first kid's legs and he slipped back and hit his head. After he fell he tripped his friend and he landed on his face and it looked like it hurt. Do you think i was being a dick or they deserved it? They all could barley snowboard and had rental board by the way.

I'm gonna quote the smart style here and say "respect gets respect" personally if you dont wanna get rocked dont stand on boxes or hangout in the landing. Maybe that kid will think twice next time haha.

Sounds like they deserved it. Must have been a funny sight.

My answer is yes.

You purposefully hit someone on the hill. Sure they were being idiots but no behaviour warrants someone purposfully trying to hurt them especially when strapped in. You say they had rentals which tells you they're beginners therefore have much less control on the hill and in turn could have seriously hurt themselves or someone else going down the hill should they tried to move to avoid you or something. In your revenge attempt you could also have hurt someone else since your focus was on them and not the hill.

Have you not heard of the actress Natasha Richardson who hit her head on the bunny run and died from a blood cloat caused by the injury? ANYTHING can happen. Letting out your frustration towards them in a physical way was a stupid and yes dick thing to do.

Grow up.

You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air. I whistled for a cab and when it came near The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare, but I thought, "Nah, forget it. Yo, holmes to Bel-Air!" I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and I yelled to the cabbie, "Yo homes smell ya later!" Looked at my kingdom I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-Air.

What if those kids got seriously or even fatally hurt? Would that have been worth it? If I were the parent of those kids, I'd make sure you pay the consequences... if not by law, by my own law.

Those kids were being dicks and idiots... so what? Try talking to them next time. You'll be surprised at how much a simple cool-headed conversation can accomplish.
