Fast forward to hole 13, one of the guys finds the teebird, announced it and put it in his bag. 10 minutes later i see the guy who lost the disc, now playing another round and i call out to him that we found it. Man, I'll never forget the death stare the guy who found it gave me until he realized there was no way out and conceded that he had to give it back and acted cool about it. Awkward silence for the rest of the round made me kinda feel a bit guilty until they drove away immediately after 18. I'd do it again 10 times out of 10. What's with people?
I likely would have said something to them like "around here people don't keep discs that don't belong to them".

As penance you must throw a roller-only round.

The player that lines up a shot with 10 pump fakes always directly on a line between him and the basket (ie never where you would want your contact point to be.) Then finally throws and does nothing like he just lined up. Why? Why did you do that? Why? It's like nails down a blackboard to me, it hurts my soul.

The player that lines up a 10', putt for 30 seconds then misses, why didn't you just pick it up and throw it in? Hmmm? ....oh yeh...that's me that does that... I've no idea why, I just like to torture myself I suppose, try and persuade myself I will make it this time for 30 seconds before missing.

A lot of the rest of the above i've probably been guilty of, i'm pretty sure I hold the disc on the teebox as a story stick way more often than the people I play with would like....

This criticism is not necessarily limited to 'chuckers'. I remember quite distinctly playing a tournament many years ago, when my group was waiting to tee on a hole, when a former world champion nearly 400' feet away on a hole a few back of ours, shouted loudly to our group 'get the f*ck out of my line' when lining up his putt (he was not joking)...incidentally, this was my first and only round I have ever played with Climo, who was a part of that (our) group...Climo shot an effortless -9 (par 54) and I dare say he appeared a little bored with the game that day...

Roller-only rounds are great until you try to putt out on #1.
