Poor guy.

Considering that is very flat terrain, he kind of went to the side slip a little early.  But, he never let go of the handles, so job well done

 

I laughed, but that sucks, too...you volunteer to help hapless skiers off the mountain and they thank you by posting humiliating videos of your missteps.  Thanks, Ungrateful, lady...next time walk your snowboard and your sad sorry butt off the hill yourself.   We'll get someone to make a funny video of your travails.  We can call it "Not so hot snowboarder lady wobbles and rolls down hill...Ha, ha!"

 

Note to self: don't let patients film you while running toboggan.

Yeah, but you can't flirt with a cute pt if you're facing forward.  wink.gif

I could be wrong here, but I think that took place at PCMR and that the patrol is pro there.  But in any event, I think the customers have a reasonable expectation that they can get hauled down an easy slope like that without the patroller falling on his ass.  I loved the look the pt gave the camera at 0:44.  She was all like "uh oh."

Classify this as "You can't make this stuff up!"

There was less reaction to this than I thought there would be.  I was kind expecting a certain amount of schadenfreude.

Although it seems that someone from epic tweeted it about a dozen times. Was that you, TC? wink.gif

That was me, every time I tweeted it it was getting 15-20 clicks so I kept posting it. It finally slowed down to bout 10 so I yanked it from the rotation. Didn't want to completely overdo it.

Right, "social media manager" - I should have figured that out.

To be fair though Tricia does cover for me when I'm away/busy or when she finds something worth posting that I miss.

Schadenfreude is a good word for the emotion that this evokes.  Of course, only the Germans would have a specific word for that particular joy that one feels at someone else's misfortune!  So, I guess I don't feel Schadenfreude - I'm just happy that it wasn't me on that video.  I have taken similar wipeouts when I wasn't paying attention - but fortunately A) wasn't in the handles, and B) wasn't on video.  Liam saw me do something pretty similar on sweep one night a couple years ago.smile.gif

It took a while but I'm catching up.  LOL.

 

Nice one Bob.  How many beers is that going to cost this poor guy?

I don't know if there's enough beer in the world for that one.  I would think there's going to be a nickname involved as well.

You shouldn't see Schadenfreude as one word, it's a compound word. 

 

Example

die Waschmaschine/ washing machine)

Poor fellow!  Note to self: Best to not publicly humiliate people whose intention is to help you (even if they do fall down in the process).
