Re: [-SK-] Does your DZ try to guilt you if you have a cutaway?

It was only the three of us and the pilot spotted and opened the door when he decided we should jump

You are responsible for the spot, not the pilot.

Had an out of sequence opening (pretty sure the lines were improperly stowed) and line twists several times over that I couldn't kick out of.

So your container opened before you deployed the PC?

I'm just trying to figure out what the deal was.

A DZO of a small 182 DZ might be a bit upset if a main was chopped at 5k regardless of the reason due to the cost of replacing the main, d-bag, risers and PC (and cutaway handle/reserve handle on occasion). That is a significant amount of money for an operation that is probably razor thin to begin with. However, it isn't worth getting killed over. Is it possible that he was upset due to other factors? Altitude the cutaway happened, for example?
