26. At the golf course today... 2 things...

1. Had a single jump in front of us between us (a twosome) and a twosome, then a 3-some and then a 4-some. Nowhere to go but this guy decided we were playing too slowly. He'd JUST caught us. He passed us and was stuck between us, the twosome ahead of us and the rest of them so I decided to call him on his inconsiderate nonsense. I drove up to him. He tried to drive away from me, but there was nowhere to go. I drove right up to him and let him know that I knew that as a single he was playing faster than we were, and that we had planned to let him play through on the 9th as we really had nothing pressing and were more than happy to let faster players play through. This guy started yelling at me quoting golf rules, etc... telling me how slow we were playing etc. He had LITERALLY JUST caught up to us. He had no idea why we were playing as slow as we were... the course was crowded and we were biding our time behind all of the players ahead of us. This guy was frothing at the mouth angry. I let him know that he was wrong for what he had done. He wouldn't hear it. Somehow, he played the front again and caught us again on the back 9. He'd claimed that he was only going to play 9, but somehow he'd played the front again, then the back and caught us again. I let the guys in the clubhouse know that he was probably terrorizing the whole course. I'm absolutely certain that we weren't the only players that he did what he did to.

2. In the clubhouse on the turn, I went in to get a couple of beers. A fellow was at the counter buying a round and getting a basket of shag balls for the practice tee. I walked behind him and kept my distance. He said "Come on up young fellow (I'm 56), You don't have to worry about me.". I said "That's alright... social distancing and everything". My mask on. He laughed and said "I'm out here every day. Nobody has gotten corona-virus from me". I said "That's alright, I've got several people up north who have gotten it and I don't want to take a chance. I don't care if you care or not, I'd rather just keep my distance." His response... "We do things differently in the south.". Keep in mind, I've lived in the south for 33 years. Longer than I lived up north (23 years). I responded "Yeah! I've noticed." I upset that guy and the guy behind the counter. I said "I'm tired of people politicizing consideration. I'm sick of everyone being so angry, and that I'm just not going to be angry." They were noticeably pissed.

It's a f'd up world we're living in folks. I told my wife that I'm tired of letting the children get away from their childishness. I will no longer allow any of them to get away with things. I will call them on everything.
