What is everybody's feelings on finding a disc, taking it to PIAS for the credit and then calling the owner to let them know their disc is safely at PIAS and they should go get it?

Perfect!

I actually lost my beat X Comet recently on a hole I didn't think I could ever lose a disc on. Had no hope that it would show up but I found it a few days later at the local shop used bin. I happily paid the $3 that the shop paid for it.

I asked the dude at the shop if he knew the douchebag that traded it and he said he was a semi regular. Yeah the dude is a douche, but it's pretty small potatoes in the grand scheme. I felt no desire to fight him.

I should update this. I STILL do not ink any of my discs. BUT....haha, I do care. I lost an important one in a tournament last month (in a pond) It would have been retrievable but I was playing so I had to move on. Thankfully I was able to put out some feelers online and a dude did find my disc. I got it back and was grateful. I typically look for my own discs relentlessly . I will look until I find it. And if I don't find it. I'll come back (probably) haha - I once lost a really nice driver by bombing a hyzer uphill. but it didn't beat the last treeand got knocked down in a treeline. I looked for an hour, no luck. So I went back the next day - looked and looked---eventually I found it up in a tree only like 60 ft from the pin. I played the rest of the hole out and got my par. Yeah I WILL find my disc, but if I don't its because its underwater or it was a REALLLLLY hard find. We have a local Lost and Found facebook group and its always worth checking - otherwise I'll cry a lil bit then find a replacement.

still no ink brahhhh

I'm not a fan. Our local PIAS began understanding values of discs. If you lost your CE thrower and it wound up there it would cost $50 to spring it.

I feel like your original question was a setup.



Augustus Gloop: Would you like some chocolate?

Charlie Bucket: Sure!

Augustus Gloop: Then you should have brought some.

I can't tell if you're being serious or not. If you are then you're just going out of your way to be an a-hole.

Would he be less of an a-hole if he just kept the disc?

No, but a quick text is way less effort.
