Odd Language #79: Somebody Tripped

I saw a job recently on a job board for a “Tripping Counsellor”.

The issue: The full title was “Tripping Counsellor – Hiking or Canoeing” which makes it fairly plain that the title should have been “Trip Counsellor”.

I do not think that the YMCA is looking for someone to help out with tripping whether that is making someone stumble or stoned.
