maybe my sarcasm meter is broken, but I think your comment is serious. Is it? If it is, then I am disgusted. He didn't do the right thing. He stole a pair of skis. Then, when his friend got busted and they had him on video tape AND the police were going to show up at his house, he returned them.
Why would Whistler want to have this possible happen again? They have thousands of clients that ski there every year. I ban the kid in a second. As a business owner, they want their environment as safe as possible. I dunno. Maybe I just see the value of discipline differently. I think it will be a much better life lesson and he won't do it again than had he been let off.
sick dude, can't wait to see the next thread talking about some1 who crossed an ugly guy with a green sandbox on the hill.
Forgiveness is bullshit with things like this. The fucker intentionally stole some kids skis, which are probably one of his most valuable possessions. It's so fucking wrong that the person who did it clearly is a complete asshole/fuckhead and won't turn into some super nice kid if you do nothing about it. Press charges and see if he can get like a 1 year ban only. Getting banned from Whistler isn't that much of a deal, unless you live there. It's fucking theft, and should be punished.
Glad you got your skis back man, but don't forget what this kid did in the first place, giving them back doesn't make it even close to right.
