When I go into the green mud swamp for discs I always leave the inked ones there because I know they will be back to find it later and I don't steal. I always put my number on the ones that aren't inked so that after I sell them and they are lost again , they will be returned to me.

Yeah, that guy is an ass, although he may have thought you were trying to scam him too - still....
Glad you got your disc back though.

I've never ran in to someone who has found my disc and was throwing it. I wish I have, cause I've lost a few discs that I loved and have never gotten calls. Even though it's almost impossible for someone to have not found it, cause people wade through the water here all the time as its only about 3 feet deep, but its wide. So if it ends up right in the middle it's difficult to see. Anyway, if someone DOES call me back, I throw em a couple bucks cause they could of easily takin it to PIAS and gotten $2 or $3 by selling it, depending on if it's a DX/Pro or Champ/Star. Agree with every one else.. I would of not given that guy a nickle.. let alone $5. Sounds like a giant doucher.

Who knows how long the guy had your disc. Was it long? I'm looking at this from all sides. That guy could have found it, called but you didn't answer and now it's his favorite disc. Meanwhile you didn't try hard enough to find it, and once you leave the course, you have given up on finding that disc and abandoned it. public park, a fifteen dollar piece of plastic that is probably already replaced. There's no reason to take it from him if it wasn't stolen from your bag or from the hole you are playing. I have found a few discs. No names but I didn't use that mold so people I join rounds with will tell me they like that disc or their friend throws those, then I'll let them have it because I'm notgonna use it. i've boughtdiscs with ink from local homeless just to get them back to the owner, and I just ask that they pay what I had to pay the transient. If the guy looked down on his luck, and you took his disc away from him, that sounds kinda messed up, regardless that it use to be yours. But I don't know your whole story.

If the guy bought it instead of finding it he would know it was a scam. I don't have any discs in my bag and the chances of someone randomly guessing it was found is pretty slim.

Agreed on the guy being an ass. I have no problem with someone keeping an inked disc. I find enough unmarked discs and to me it all evens out in the end, but to ask someone for something when you know it was theirs is just being a baby. I think anyone, myself included, would expect it back if it randomly found its way back to them like that. Kind of a cool karma sort of thing. That guy has some bad juju coming his way lol.

I just find this to be completly unacceptable behavior. If your name is not on it-- your loss. If it's inked- you can leave it or make an attempt to call. Someone who plays DG should know this. Having the stones to ask for a replacement and or money! You must be kidding me.
Exactly what he said
