The following happened today while I was skiing. I had just passed a slow sign going rather fast (but in complete control + there was nobody on the hill) and had reached the bottom. I was waiting for my friends when this random old guy with a very angry voice comes comes over and starts screaming at me.

Him: You better hope to god you don't hit anybody going that fast you little asshole
Me: Just because I was going fast dosen't mean I am going to hit somebody.
Him: Bullshit, you have no idea what you're doing out there.
Me: Whatever (as I try to ignore him)
Him: Maybe if you had more than an 8th grade education and actually knew the meaning of the word slow.
Me (as my friends are showing up): If you are just learning the meaning of slow in 8th grade you have bigger problems.
Him (as we are getting ready to board the lift): I'm going to tell the ski patrol about you little bastards.
Me: Fuck you.

Anyone else ever have any interesting experiences with old people who think that it is their job to control the world.

That may be true, but if he has a problem with something he should at least present it in a calm, respectful, and mature manner. If that had been the case then he would have recieved an apology. Especially when the problem has absolutly nothing to do with him.

The first time I went snowboarding I was going down the beginner's slope really really fast, as I had absolutely no idea how to slow down, and I ran into this old guy on skis, knocking him over. He cussed me out because I got his pants wet and he didn't bring any to change into.

The second time I went snowboarding, I hit this, like, ten year old kid at full speed and literally flipped over him before rolling halfway down the hill. He bursted out crying and a bunch of adults came running over. My (now ex) girlfriend was there, too...

I don't snowboard anymore...

Well, you see, when there is a sign that says something, it is normally there not so you can do the opposite of what it says, but so that nobody gets hurt and it protects everybody. So you were in complete control, things can change in a second. That old guy had every right to tell you off. What if you were speeding down a suburban road and a sign indicated to slow down?
And then theres the part where your an antagonistic prick, and heres the problem - you think your in control of f*cking everything, and you think you know better than anyone who obviously is trying to do the right thing for everybody.
Grow up.

No, by approching me and cussing me out.

I would have been completly respectful if he had said something along the lines of.

"You should really slow down, somebody could get hurt like that."

I couldn't agree more with this, but again it's not that he told me to slow down, it's the way he told me to do it.

if you followed the actual rules of the slope, this entire thing would have never happened. you wouldn't be here bitching about some old guy, who had the right, yelling at you. and i would be off studying for a quiz at college tomorrow.

Yeah, I'll agree that old people are more knowledgeable than us, but I can definatly see where this guy is comming from. I work part time at a grocery store and I get rather pissed off at the majority of the old farts that inhabit the area and blame all the store's problems on me. For isntance, if an item isnt ringing up at the right price then its somehow my fault that it was programmed into the system, the sale signs from last week are still up, yada yada. It's funny that the majority of the old people out there know much more than the average young person, but have the respect and the patience of a hormone-driven adolesant.
