Pet Peeves

I haven't been playing very long and Lord knows there's very little about me or my game worth bragging about, but I'm nothing if not considerate.

DG is a great game....and one worth enjoying. I have no qualms whatever about guys on the course taking their time to get every shot right, make every put count, and work their tails off to make their game tip-top. Be you. Do what you do, brother, and tweak that game into a National Championship.

However....

What I absolutely HATE is dudes who have NO consideration for other people. For example, today I was playing The Castle with three of my buddies. We were a foursome and apparently the twosome in front of us started on the back 9. Slow on 10....okay. Might be a bad hole. But no! We're waiting at 11 and they're literally 25 feet in front of the tee-box throwing TWO DISCS EACH. No "Hey, y'all go ahead" or, "Feel free to play through." Just looked back (no courtesy wave even) and then WENT TO FIND THEIR DISCS. Didn't even know where they threw them.

This went on until 17. My foursome waited on every single hole for those two doucherockets. Finally on 17 we're waiting. After five minutes one of them walks out of the woods and says, "You can play through...we're looking for a disc."

As I walked up to my drive I saw the douche who didn't have a beard mad-dogging us seeming to expect us to offer to help find his boyfriend's disc. Nothin' doin', son. F#@! yo couch. Walked on like the Man in Black and birdied that bad boy like it was my job.

I guess the point to this post that I took the scenic route to is that I hate inconsiderate people. If you're slow and people are constantly waiting on you, let 'em play through. Doesn't matter if they have more people....if they're playing faster, stand aside and let 'em go.

That's my pet peeve: Inconsiderance. And yes, I just made that word up. What's yours?

Yes! A pet peeves thread!

I miss Prerube.

A huge pet peeve of mine is being thrown on, especially without yelling "fore."

Hahaha. Well said, sir. Were they new players, by chance? Maybe they didn't know to let you play through?

Being thrown on or seeing someone mistreating a course puts you on my naughty list.

Pretty common issue we all are forced to deal with. Lots of patience, some good sportsmanship and a healthy dose of friendly communication seems to solve nearly all these type deals. Once in a great while you will come across an honest to goodness knucklehead, but hey they are all around, right? When this happens, employ the"acknowledge and move along" philosophy. If they are really dbags, you are not going to reach them anyway. We are all out for a good time, my take is try to help everyone achieve that goal.

I'm sure many people will agree but...
When people say they can throw WAY farther than they actually can.

Funny you say that.

One of the guys in my group threw on the group in front of us at #1. It was his third time playing ever and, with the basket a few hundred feet ahead with more trees in the way to make an incident not only improbable but downright unbelievable, we told him to throw. Being a softball-playing, homerun-hitting machine, he's got some power....we just didn't figure he'd get as lucky as he did. Handicap-parked that B five feet from the basket whilst the group in front was still putting. His bad. I claim no responsibility. I don't even know that guy.

At any rate, props to the guy in front playing with his wife and daughter for throwing up the field-goal-good arms and acting harder than Clinton's Johnson in the Oval Office. We apologized for our rudeness, as we should have. Playing into people without permission is douche-y.

Don't know. It's possible, I guess. I just figured that letting faster groups play through was common knowledge. But then, I'm in the Navy; "common" sense isn't so common.

I refuse to keep peeves as pets, they just don't have the redeeming qualities that cats and dogs do.
