LOL, that was funny as hell. Unless someone here was one of the pilots, in which case it's not laughing matter. ;-)So don't retract the flaps on rollout, huh? I'll have to remember that. I always do it in case I need to take off again right away, but I guess I should stop...

It's also standard for a short field landing in a Cessna. Raising the flaps puts more weight on the wheels so you can apply more brakes with out sliding/skidding
