Got Problems?

hence the whole point of my contension. But by raising the issue I'm being disrespectful and lack integrity, so what do I know. 🤷‍♂️

I have found there is a new"bad" attitude in the local seen. Not sure if there are a lot of people dealing with personal issues, or just a really unwanted swing in the game. I would call for a meeting with the individual to have a chance to talk it through. If he puts it down, I'd bring up to the club. If this doesn't resolve the issue, I'd look for a new place to play.

What's wierd about this guy is that he's in his 70's, and we actually play together sometimes on Tuesday nights in our weekly league, so I saw him Tuesday night and he was cordial and we were actually joking about different things. Then I get his email Thursday night.

 

As for the local course getting involved, it's a public course run by the city muni, and this guy has been playing there for many years, and I am the new guy, and have only been a "member" less than a year, so ultimately I don't see the point of getting the golf club involved in what I consider juvenile semantics. And honestly, what would the golf course offer to a situation like this where it's just petty bickering about nothing?

 

I stayed home this morning, watching Ryder Cup. Maybe I'll go out to breakfast with the wife on Saturday mornings now and play at a different time by myself. But I'm not going out of my way to patronize this guy's petty BS. Life's too short, so we're moving on. Our league is off until next March, so we'll see how that goes next year. I'm on the committee of the league, so I kind of have to be there. But if it gets contentious I'll simply resign from the committee and be done with that as well.

 

Personally, I don't do confrontation. I'm getting too old to let little stuff bother me, so if this guy wants to carry a grudge, that's on him.

Yep. It's gotten to the point that I'm ready to move-on from this company. Boss is a complete ass, company has no idea where they're going, and I've had enough of 12-15 nights out per-week. It's just not worth it anymore. Praying for a change.

Had an offer yesterday to interview with another company, but it's too big of a hit on the base.

Ugh. If only coaching and teaching could pay the bills.

They all have the same plot, local boy now is a big shot finance guy in NY. Is somehow given the assignment to go to an under performing family store from his hometown and make a aggressive bid to buy it and turn it into a big chain. All before Christmas Eve.

 

Meantime his high school sweet heart is now a single mother and managing the store trying to keep it affloat. Mr bigshit is going to lay people off.

 

They butt heads but ultimately he is won over by the town holiday spirit and decides to quit his job and use all his skill in helping turn around the local store while also joining the comittee for decorating town center for the Christmas Eve tree lighting.

 

The girls young son is taken with him and they get engaged and a year later have their own baby as the store is thriving.

 

Yep. Seen that plot many times. Yet I keep watching with her. Ha. I'm such a sap!!

what Hallmark movies are you watching? The women are all coming off some relationship that didn't work out and they need to travel to some town in Vermont with 50 people where they inherited something and end up falling in love with the quaint little town. And in the midst of this town is some single dude that looks like Matthew Macaunaghey that works in a barn riding horses in his mid 30s and is still a virgin because he's lived there all his life and has never done anywhere. Meanwhile he has nothing in common with her but somehow they fall in love while the boyfriend from the city comes calling after she's fallen in love with stable boy.

 

There's never any poverty, crime or even a car accident and everyone's life is perfect and their idea of a party involves tea and cookies that grandma made. 🤮🤮🤮

Had my irons and hybrid re-shafted at Golf Galaxy and went to pick them up. Shafts look great, but they "forgot" to trim the lengths and all the irons are missing their ferrules…!😖Fortunately they trimmed the shafts before I left with them, but none of us noticed the lack of parts...I only noticed their absence when I began to install the grips late last night...😫Now off on another trip to have them done right...

Waited a few hours B4 I responded.

I'm actually pretty serious for a change. I spent the last 30 years (50 years employed) I'm running a company for a family that owned but couldn't manage it. In effect I had 4 bosses that didn't know squat. When business and economic conditions were good never saw them. If there was a downturn it was hell all they wanted was there profits and they fought over them.

I loved running the company it was a blast, employees were mostly great.

After a while the “family” just beat me down and I couldn't wait to get out. Last five years were hell on wheels but I stuck it out.

Anyway do what's best for you and foremost your family.

I wanted to retire 4-5 years earlier but health insurance got in the way.

Good luck on your future. Think it out.

So last Saturday we have an 8:00 am tee time.  I show up at 7:30 am and the guy who makes the tee time had already tee'd off with another member of the group, "who has health issues and plays slow."  I go off with another member of the group about 10 minutes after I get there.

 

Normal Tuesday email goes out about next Saturday's tee time, which is 7:51 am.  He asks everyone to respond who is playing, so my response goes like this, "I'll show up if you promise to keep the tee time you told us to show up for, and not tee off 45 minutes before said tee time just because you could."

 

We go back and forth a few more times on email, and his last email to me was, to put it bluntly, "you lack respect and integrity for the members of this group.  You are still welcome to come next Saturday, but you need to show the group respect."

 

I won't respond, because to sum up his last email, it was essentially an "F you" email to me.

 

I find it interesting how I lack respect and integrity when I show up 30 minutes early for a tee time that someone else made, but the guy teeing off 45 minutes early is doing the right thing.

 

Like I told my wife, I don't need this crap.  I play golf to enjoy it, and not to be accused of lacking integrity and respect for the above mentioned reasons.  Unbelievable.

Is this an email between you and him? Or Is this a group email? The people in charge of setting up the Saturday games are usually a committee and not just one person. It seems like you could ask the group why the tee times given in the email aren’t the actual times to show up. We sometimes have groups where someone doesn’t show up, and a guy or 2 will get moved around, but we don’t leave other guys from that group hanging either, we try to get everyone in a group when there are open spots since someone doesn’t show up. I think the bigger problem is the guys who say there going, and then don’t show up. We have those too.

The group has about 6 people in it. We’ve never had more than 4 show up. There is no committee. It’s one guy making a tee time and sending out an email.

Just factor in that when I say I will be there for something I show up, and show up with plenty of time to spare before the actual time.

I’m a man of my word. What I say I mean, and what I mean, I do. So when someone (essentially) lies to me by either not showing up or taking off early, way before the appointment, it pisses me off.

I have the same pet peeve about people who are habitually late for things. I had another friend who you could never count on to actually show up on time for a tee time. It didn’t matter what time, or where, but he always had an excuse for why he was running late. The problem with running your life like this is that while you assume it’s no big deal, me and everyone else who showed up on time to play golf, you made wait. Essentially, you think your time is more valuable than mine.

I see it in all sorts of places. Work, school, church, golf, wherever. People that are tardy never apologize and just think their behavior is acceptable. I disagree and I take offense by it. It’s rude and pisses me off. Same goes for the situation here. I show up 30 minutes early and you are already gone? I don’t think so. It’s unacceptable in my book. Apparently this guy disagrees and even said to me he’d do it again.

Now you know why I am pissed off and didn’t play golf last Saturday.

I’ve been watching this conversation. From everything said I believe he owes you an apology. This gentleman is responsible for the group no matter he should have waited until correct tee time.
I run 3-4 groups a week. I send out an email asking who wants to play, they reply if they are going to participate, no answer no play. When tee time is posted I send another email notifying all who replied time & place. Easy, not really I still have problems.
