Thanks Man I have always said what I thought no holds barred. Kinda got into semi hot water at Church the other week where I run sound. We do Facebook Live. That is a separate operation. The sound comes out of my board to the computer and that is on those guys end. Well some of the know it alls criticized me on FB said there was not much volume she could not hear. I explained what went on but she kept on me. Finally I told her if she wanted to hear better then maybe she get off her Fat Francis and attend church or turn her hearing aid up. Also told her if she thought she could do better she could have my job I would stay at home and listen to Jimmy Swaggart. Of course a lot of the members stood up for me. The Pastor tongue in cheek laughing talked to me. Said he would have a talk with her. One of the members did point out on FB the fact with a broken back I climbed the 20 steps to the balcony and 6 more to the booth. I kinda had some remorse thinking she may have been disabled or something. One of the members told me in person she had no disability that she was too lazy to get up dress and come to church in person. I darn near quit over the whole deal because I do not get paid one red hot cent for doing that job. But on the bright side when I was first hurt it took me 20 minutes to get to my perch now only takes 5 minutes or so and it gets less painful each week.

We had a party up at the race car shop that night with a bon fire and all----- Now not all of us were consuming alcohol because we were Volunteer Firemen and you know New years Eve drunks and accidents. What really stuck out was the fact it was the ONLY New Years Eve as a firefighter first responder I did not run a accident call. In fact no calls in the whole county that night.

It’s amazing how much complaining people do when you’re volunteering. I walked away from a volunteer gig I was doing because of a few whiners, project fell apart short time later because nobody wanted to do all the work.

Many years ago I was on the Board of Directors at our Club. I would get calls at night, people complaining about menu selections or women complaining about the quality of toilet paper in the ladies room.  And we had an active Club Manager. I couldn't imagine what it'd be like if it was all volunteer.

Speaking of ladders...  

We have an atomic clock mounted on the wall above the doorway from kitchen to living room.  

IMG_1349.jpeg.7b4681fdca508cdaf3935196e0c2956a.jpeg

It keeps perfect time with the clock in Boulder, CO.  Well, it did until yesterday.  For some reason the time "jumped" 4 hours backward; maybe 8 hours forward, IDK.  It's still keeping perfect time other than that.  Time to get the ladder!!

Maybe it remembered what 2020 was like and then decided to skip 2021 and jump to 2022.

Went into the local Dicks this weekend, killing time while wife and Daughter were in Hobby Lobby. Happened to see a Cobra SZ with the Hzrds Yellow Smoke shaft for $399.00 (the club I'm thinking about upgrading to), so I asked if I could Give it a few hits in their Bay.. I was told they charge $20 an hour, if I wanted to pay $20 I could... WTH.. I get charging for me to bring clubs in and hit.. but testing a club out for a potential sale.. I just said no thanks and left.. 

Am I missing something? I have always been able to give a club a few hits if I'm looking. Never have I even been charged if I just said I want to try it.. Not that I'm a big Dicks Shopper since the golf area is one of the smallest around. Had a ton of balls and very few clubs...

Never heard that one before from DSG. I tried out something recently and they were more than helpful with what I was interested in and also made suggestions and it was free. I would send an email to corporate and complain.

Agreed. That's some BS. I never had a problem hitting clubs at my local DSG, even when the folks working that department had no idea about anything golf-related. I'd say that warrants an email to complain, for sure.

Exactly what I was going to suggest---- Which I do not do business with DSG anyhow---- The one down here has crappy service and an equally crappy attitude---- A friend of mine down the road has an independent shop and I patronize him or my home course Pro Shop

Man that’s just plain dumb on their part.  How many clubs get sold because people try and like...never going to happen if you charge just to get in the bay with it.

I'm going to guess it was a misinformed employee that thought all hitting bay use is $20 and not just if you bring in your own clubs.

I'd agree. In situations like that I talk to the manager vs. sending a note to corporate. More personal and doesn't become one of thousands of emails.
