these people..... oh I can hardly think straight, I know it's stupid to get pissed on the internet but
You started out pissed, calling them idiotic, ridiculous, irresponsible, AND stupid in the first post.
In other words you came across as what you stated at the beginning, "a totally random jerk".
How did you expect someone to react to that?
It's one thing to start nicely pointing out the error of their ways and then becoming agitated as they give stupid answers, but another entirely to start out on the name-calling offensive.
OK, that's pretty entertaining. Now the owner/instructor/whatever person and that Montana girl are fighting between themselves because o/i/w told people to lay off Montana and Montana rather rudely told her to stop standing up for her. It was funny last night, now it's even better.
Lucky Acres is a great name for them, though. They're lucky nobody has gotten killed on their acres yet! And they'll be even luckier if anyone actually learns to ride correctly from their "instruction!"
I find that the older I get the less I care. There is so much stupid in the world and I'm capable of fixing only a teeny-tiny little bit of it. I save my effort for those I care about and those I can help. For the rest, well they're on their own.
Yeah, it's the oldies who care less but rant more about the Important Stuff. Maybe I'm limiting others' right to slap on a TBI so that there's enough money in the insurance pool for me to slap on adult diapers some day?
You did come off very confrontational and it definitely could have been approached better, but those girls sound like they are 12 years old anyways. I know it's frustrating, but you're not going to get through their apparently very thick skulls when their argument is "I have been riding there for months and haven't been hurt yet!". Yes, months honey, you must know everything now huh?
Montana Hill: I'm not 12! I'm 15!!
A helmet saved my life.
2015 goal: learn to ride like TheHorseProblem, er, a barn rat!
lmao she got me there! But it hardly compares with her latest words of wisdom
"If I got an injury I wouldn't use my parents insurance I wouldn't even go to the doctor . I would get up and get over it if I die o well who cares that doesn't affect taxes or insurance so stay out of our business"
I'm sure her parents are sthuper proud of that attitude. I imagine she's just a peach to deal with in person
