Today I was out playing a round with two other guys. It was a beautiful fall day here in Sarasota. A little while into the round, as the three of us were about to putt, We hear a driver plop down behind us, someone shouting out "all clear" and a little kid shouting "heads up fellas". So we finish that hole, chalking it up to ignorance. A few holes later, as one of the other two guys in my group was taking a moment to scope out how he wanted to make his approach shot, another shout "Hey do you need a reason" After a brief verbal back and forth, we encouraged the schmucks to go ahead and play on through. In the process, the kid who was with the group picked up one of our guy's drivers from where it laid ( remember the A-Holes decided to take up their little beef right after we had driven). He asked if it was any of our's I asked the kid of it was his, he said no, I said "then you should probably put it right back where you found it". His dad, or older brother or whoever, told him, "Don't do that, you got in trouble for that earlier". I am a step father myself & I take the little one's manners seriously. You can't really blame the kid for his ignorance but It's a little sad seeing the example that guy was setting for the kid. Had their group called out and asked if we minded if they play on through once we had all made our putts, it would have been way better received by the three of us and there wouldn't have been any conflict or hard feelings. I guess in some cases ego and self importance win out over treating others with respect.WTF?
