He lacks ambition and he'll go no where in life. Kids these days.

Post his picture on all the bulletin boards at school.

Yeah!! What they ^^ said.

I never missed a ski day at UVM. I did have to stop and puke on the side of the road a few times and was glad there were no BAC checks at 6:30 am. Come to think of it, back then, BAC checks didn't exist if you had VT plates.

You can tell that I'm a parent of a few kids who are nearing their 20's .. :

What I hear you saying is that .... I lost my license cause of that DUI and now I have to depend on my equally messed up buds ... ??

well, as they say: if you want something done, do it yourself.

i found someone willing to lend a car, and i drove alone to sugarbush. had a great day, talked to some nice folks, and skied some great runs! now my legs are in pain! my friend was jealous..."you should've woken me up" he said. ha. now i just have to wait until after thanksgiving break to get back on the slopes... just a few more days!

+1 if you want something done....

Bummer man...I also have a couple friends like that. I learned a while ago that it's hard to depend on anyone under the age of 30. (Ironically i'm 23 lol)

I never try to wake anyone any up, I tell them the night before what time I am leaving and just go.

1. sounds like you need to save up and buy some wheels.

2. "I never try to wake anyone any up, I tell them the night before what time I am leaving and just go."

Word to that.

I have a list of about 30 work folks and then 15 misc. non-work friends that all claim to ski or board.

I routinely send out an "Urgent" email detailing my ski plans for a particular week (usually this is sent out every Tuesday notifying the list that I'm headed to Tahoe and if anybody wants to roll they're more than welcome to join me and crash at my cabin).

In 3 years of having the list a grand total of 5 people have taken me up on the offer.

I just send the list out regardless, never expecting anybody to go. If somebody pipes up, cool.

The funny thing is that last season most of these folks wouldn't go because they kept hearing how sh@tty the conditions were. They were all blown away that I got 40 days in because of this. I kept telling 'em, would you rather sit around San Francisco in the rain or hit the slopes for fair to midland riding, at the very least getting out of the City for a weekend.

Go figure.

Tell 'em and attempt to fire them up enough to rally. If they don't rally, screw 'em.



Besides, your friend should be core enough to get hammered and still get up the next morning in time for first chair.

I second hating college kids, and I also hate all the shitty college cars. My seasons opener was ruined by a broken truck, a friend ditching, and then a broken jeep that resulted in a turn around, and two quarts of transmission fluid. three ride failures. *sigh* when I can afford my own car....
