True Story....I was leading the right facing corner at Moores a bunch of years ago. I was inthe crux curtain and it was thin. I was vaguely aware that there were cars stopping on the bridge and people saying things about how crazy we were. The next thing I know I hear a very obnoxious drunken male voice coming from a car window shout "I hope you fucking FALL and DIE!!!!". Tires screeched and the engine raced and they were gone. The voice was definitely a grown man, not a teenager or young adult.

I wasn't exactly mad or upset, but the oddness of it really made me lose concentration and I almost had to hang on a screw just to bring myself back to what I was doing. I remember topping out with some good moss sticks and mumbling to myself...."oh yeah..well I hope you eat a lot of greasy potato chips watching Nascar and have a massive coronary in your livingroom"

RR

Seriously though, who does that?

RR, maybe it was that insurance salesman you blew off about the term life policy he was trying to sell you. Maybe.

I've seen that type of hostility from non-climbers on the interwebs. Whenever you see a news report of a climbing accident in conventional media, there is often some sort of a negative remark similar to the one you describe. Climbing is seen by some as a useless activity costing tax-payers money and loved ones an emotional distress.

he was probably just pissed that you were the reason he was backed up in traffic trying to get home... the fact that you were climbing ice was probably irrelevant?

I don't really think the foul-mouthed motorist who yelled at Rob was motivated by fiscal responsibility. Nor, I suspect, was he a distraught relative of Rob's.

I suspect he was merely a beered-up a$$hole of sub-average intelligence who didn't like seeing that someone enjoys a physical aactivity that he is not capable of.

A = The guy was drunk (most likely on heinekens and Yagger bombs)
B = He was from 'Longailend' NY

Most likly this is the guy....

That's a pretty funny monologue you posted, Smike. It seems though that this thread morphed from ticklist to tickedofflist.
