I admit I LOL'ed.

In other news: middle aged man shares lift and immediately tries to establish pecking order by asking, "so what do you do?"

"Are you making fun of me?"

 

was what the [old] skier said before he picked up that snowboarder [young whippersnapper] and threw him off the chairlift!  :)

Of course, I know you're not a snowboarder.  

 

And neither guy was old.

This is my pick ..... being a cranky old man.

 

Seriously  - makes no difference if it's one plank or two, young or old; if you're a serious jerk, the hairy eye ball's comin' your way.

I rushed onto a plane once from Amsterdam to Toronto..7 hours..and as soon as I sat down, old guy beside me asked what school I went to.  Public high school obviously..but I was an aspiring engineer and thought I was doing ok.  Well he interrupted me and proceeded to tell me about his son who went to St. Andrews College (very expensive private high school) where he was the captain of the hockey team and the ski team...on and on..the plane finally took off, he shuffled into the first class lounge even though he was in coach (probably BS'd his way in there too..) and I didn't see him until 15 mins before landing, so drunk he couldn't remember our conversation.  Poor guy had no idea how close he came to suffocation...

Blond gets on a plane to Las Vegas-- and sits down in first class with a coach ticket. Flight attendant comes up to her and says Miss, you cant sit there it's first class, you have to pay extra to sit there and someone else is already assigned to that seat. She says--I don't care, I'm here to have a good time and I'm not moving. Head flight attendant comes over and gives her the same talk--with the same results. Finally pilot comes over, talks to her for a minute and she gets up and moves back to coach. The flight attendants ask the pilot--What did you tell her? I told her this part of the plane is going to Chicago. (Told to me by my blond wife).
