I know we all hate to lose a disc, and it always seems to be that one disc you use the most. But what is even worse,is when you are playing on the course, and there at the hole is a fellow disc golfer using your disc you lost the week before. I don't know about anyone here but when I get a new disc, I put on my email, name and phone, hoping that if I lose it, someone will have the courtesy to try and contact me to return it. But the other day, as I am waiting for the foursome in front of me to play, another golfer pulled out of his bag a disc that looked very familiar. He turned to one of the others in his group and even bragged about finding it and not calling the name because when loses a disc no one ever calls him, so why should he do it. I walked over, being polite as I possibly can, said, please return that disc to the rightful owner, ME! He was shocked, asked to see some id, and then said, "I fished it out of a tree so the disc stays with me. If you don't have the equipment to retrieve it, then why are you out here?" When I tried to reason with him, he looked at me, and then launched it into the middle of the lake. He laughed and said, fetch boy, fetch! Being the person I am, I turned and walked away. I know most disc golfers are not like him, but if have someone's disc sitting in your bag, and it has ID on it, please try and return it. If you don't give it a try, then you might as well, go to the nearest store and steal one. It is basically the same.
Oh and by the way, even though I wanted to beat the crap out of the guy, he got what he deserved. He lost 3 discs that day and failed to qualify for day two of the tournament.
