Default Is it so wrong?

I was playing Bradford Park, NC this last Sunday with 4 other friends. Every tee pad was full for the next 10 holes with ppl playing in between people waiting. Hole 3 a pair comes up to us. We have been waiting at the tee pad for about 5-7 minutes for the group in front of us to finish the hole. Once we started throwing our disc; the pair behind us yelled at us "since we aren't going to be nice"..... They will go figure it out and trotted to the next hole. (Which was also swamped with people)

Is it so bad that people assume that we didn't let them play through just because we have 5 and they have 2? We would have had to wait for them on this for that hole as well as every hold there after.

I would have let them play through, even if they weren't going to get too far

Always seems quicker when a two some is doing the waiting in front of you than a four of fivesome.

No, not really. You don't have to let them play through even if you are the only group there besides them... If I were in a group of two coming up on you, I wouldn't even think to ask at a crowded course... if you were playing fast, I wouldn't think to ask either... if you are slow, then I would.

Asking implies that the answer could be no or yes. I'm guessing they asked... you never said they did or didn't.

They never asked; they sat behind us for maybe 20 seconds before the group ahead of us finally finished. (about 6 minutes we have been waiting)

They should have read the room a little better and been able to tell that you were waiting on someone who was waiting on someone and so on. you aren't wrong to not let them pass as it would just stack 2 more people in front of you. If I find myself in that situation I generally suggest we join since we will be together the rest of the round anyway. I have made some friends like that that I still regularly play.

You should have at least acknowledged their presence and pointed out the crowded course situation (some people really don't notice). If they still asked to play through I would have let them go in a passive aggressive manner. I'd rather have another 5-some behind me than a couple of impatient jerks.

No problem...other than now having to add 2 more people ahead of you to play through. My solution when the course is that packed? Find another course or do some field work.

Passive-aggressive people like that really irritate me: people that don't have the ability to ask for what they want but throw a comment over their shoulder when they don't get it.

If I were in the 2-some, yes I would want to play through even though I would have another group to play through ahead of me. I would get through eventually and I wouldn't want to sit behind 5-somes for 3 hours. I don't think their desire to play through was unreasonable but their execution was dumb.
