Years ago, I was at Killington, and taking a group lesson. We were in the lift queue, with one other person and myself at the head of the line, all ready to hop onto a double chair. When our turn came, we slid out to the pickup point.
Unfortunately, the person behind us in line slipped out too early, and the chair scooped them up, and before the liftie could stop it, it scooped us up as well. So now we had three people on a double chair. Not good. I was sitting on the other guy's lap and so I decided to jump. My buddy (i.e., my original lift partner) also jumped. One of us must have hit the third person on our way down, as we dislodged him as well. All three of us wound up in a big heap. Pretty much everyone in the lift line had fallen over laughing.
Once we finally got to the top, our instructor just looked at us and said "well, we were going to go over such-and-such, but I think a review of how to board a lift might be in order here."
