A woman was preparing for a hiking trip with her boyfriend Jack, his brother Tyler, and their friend Paula. The group was excited for a day in the great outdoors, but little did they know that the men would be scared into learning a valuable lesson due to their own actions.
Choosing an Easier Trail
The woman, Jack, and Tyler were all experienced hikers, but Paula was less accustomed to the activity. To accommodate her, the woman suggested a less strenuous, flatter trail for their adventure.
Unexpected Differences in Pacing
Initially, the group all hiked at a normal pace. However, Jack and Tyler began to hike faster, leaving Paula and the woman behind. This deviation from the initial plan frustrated the woman, as she knew that staying together was essential for wilderness safety.
Concerned about the group’s safety, the woman caught up with Jack and asked the men to stick together with her and Paula. However, Jack complained that they were too slow and that the trail was too easy for the men.
Hatching a Plan
Exhausted and needing a break, the woman and Paula decided to stop and discuss the situation. “Paula joked that we should stop chasing and let them wonder”, remembered the woman. “I suggested we just hang out at the viewpoint until the guys noticed, or found us on the way back down.”
A Moment of Relaxation
Paula and the woman had an excellent time at the viewpoint eating their lunch, relaxing, and laughing together. Unbeknownst to them, the guys were hurrying back to the viewpoint, thinking Paula and the woman were in distress.
Hearing the Men
The women heard the men before they could see them, as they were sprinting and frantically calling out their names. The woman attempted to shout “Over here!”, but she had a bad case of the giggles, contorting the words into what the men thought sounded like a cry for help.
The Confusing Response
Upon arrival, the men became increasingly concerned as they mistook the women’s laughter for distressed crying. When the woman explained that they were fine and just laughing, Tyler became furious.
“Tyler got really mad at us”, the woman explained. “After we didn’t show up for an hour they decided to turn back to look for us instead of summiting. He was furious that we just stopped to relax without telling them.”
The Irony of Communication
The woman explained how she responded to Tyler’s anger. “I was like, ‘I thought we split up like y’all were off doing your own thing all day’ and my boyfriend raised his voice at me telling me that you don’t split up a group without communication.” The women couldn’t help bursting into laughter again, as this was exactly what they had been saying all this time.
Resentment on the Hike
The hike continued, but now with an air of resentment. The guys were upset, believing their summit had been ruined by ‘bad vibes’. The women were feeling similarly about the men, claiming that none of this would have happened if they’d all simply stuck together.
Telling Her Story
The woman headed online to tell her story, asking the internet who they felt was in the right. Everyone believed the men had been asking for it. “You told Jack and Tyler repeatedly what the issue was”, one commenter pointed out. “They ignored, so you and Paula finally gave up trying to win a losing game.”
Adjust for the Weakest
Many people brought up a well-known rule in the world of hiking. “You adjust your route to fit the weakest hiker, not the strongest”, expressed a fellow hiker. “Instead, they chose to abandon you and Paula over and over again.”
A Dangerous Lesson
It was clear that everyone agreed with the woman and Paula that the men had been taught a valuable lesson. “They didn’t consider yours or Paula’s needs for a single minute”, another commenter wrote. “If a real incident happened to you, you’d be screwed because THEY messed up. And you’re more likely to mess up trying to keep up with a pace you can’t maintain.”
