KARMA

So over th 4th of July I lost a prized Mantis - you know, one of those big Z stamps. The way I lost it was well...embarrassing. You see I was at George Wilson on #18 which is a gigantic downhill shot on a 600'+ hole so naturally with no one behind me I had to throw at least 5 or 6 drives. And I lost count which results in me forgetting my Mantis out in the tall-ish grass and not realizing until a few days later.

Yesterday, I was out at Lake Township where a group of huckers playing a round and I of course notice one of them hucking a disc A LOT like my Mantis so the conversation went like this:

"Hey man, mind if I take a look at that disc?"
"No dude, here you go."
"Hmmm, do you know who that is?" (pointing to my name and phone number CLEARLY written on the disc)
"Uhhhhh...no I don't."
"Yeah, that's me."
"Oh ok. Cool man. Yeah. There you go. So yeah, I just found it laying on the ground over there on hole two."

If he's telling the truth then that means there were at least 2 huckers that had their hands on my disc with nary a single phone call. Whatevs....

I waited for him to throw a fit but he didn't. Not exactly worth getting into a fist fight over plastic so I was going to let him have it if he did get worked up over it. I know I came across as a jerk but I don't care. Got my disc back. Just sharing so you all know that what comes around sometimes goes around.

It's always nice to get discs back. Did you at least offer him one in return?

I doubt he "just found it over there on hole 2". I'm betting he's had it for a couple days and didn't want to say so.

ive had a similar situation, but to make it worse the guys like 7 y/o son was actually the one using it. So after I confronted the dad about it and he didn't argue much I ran back to my car and grabbed another putter and gave it to them. If it wasn't the kid using it I probably wouldn't have given them another disc but I won't do that to a kid.

Yeah... I confronted a guy with a disc of mine (my name and number also clearly visible on it) that I lost just two days earlier. He tried telling me he bought it at PIAS "a few weeks ago". I called him out on his BS right away.

Similar situation happened to me but it was a DX Valk so it was much easier to say "just keep it".

I have returned about 25 disc where the owner had never been to the course or state I found the disc in. the disc chunkers would rather through a found rare disc than their own pro d garbage over water.

Same here, I thought maybe the disc was called Karma.
