You are right.
I was out of control and Joe K is actually OK. I met up with him in a bar the other day and he is a nice reasonable guy. We had a nice talk up until the point we realized who each other was; I remembered he was the guy who took my pass and he realized that I was the guy that had my new gloves ruined, we laughed, and he even bought me a beer! I now have some understanding how tough it is being a ski patroler, doing what you love to do while trying (vainly) to prevent those conditions which cause accidents. After I bought him a couple wine coolers he even offered to style me out on a phatty cat ride! I can now appreciate how difficult it is to be a ski patroller, to get paid worse than I do at Burger King yet still have to deal with horrible accidents and, yes, unreasonable people, like me. A couple more wine coolers later he was showing me some rad pictures of how those guys PARTY! Wow! You think Joe K is tall now, you should see the pics of him in 5" heels! Damn, how he found a dress that long I'll never know! Sure, I put a bar stool between us after that, but that dude will joke and laugh as long as the wine coolers are flowing! He showed me a pattern of what he was going to wear the next time Cher comes on tour, can't picture him in a vee neck but whatever, he's a cool dude and I have no beef with him at all!!
Rock on, Man!
