    Getting up way-early on yours and your wife's day off...
    driving over 2 hours through nasty freezing rain and snow to go skiing...
    getting dressed to ski in the truck...
    unloading your gear...
    and realizing at that moment...













































    ...you left the ski poles on the shelf.
    In the basement.
    At home.
    2+ hours away.

    We were gonna ask about renting just poles, and I was kinda hoping they'd just say "take 'em" since there weren't more than 20 cars in the parking lot, but we ended up taking that as the final sign that skiing today just was not to be. Wife wasn't feeling real well, we were both tired, weather for the drive home later in the afternoon was gonna be iffy... so we said F-it and went back home & took a nap. Our tickets are still good for weekdays through the rest of the season, so all we lost was a tank of gas.

    Leaving the poles at home is about as bad as leaving them at the mountain... which I've also done (last year). Thankfully the rentals staff grabbed them before some other asshat, and I was able to recover them later.

    worst skiing experience ever (of this nature) was coming out of the chalet only to find a pair of ski's matching mine (with different bindings) beside where mine had been left.


    some asshat hopped into my ski's insted of his thinking they were his.

    I waited at the racks outside the chalet for 3 hours for that idiot to show up, and still had to point out the mistake.
