Don’t Be That Guy

Recommended Posts

People take advantage of the fact that they're working and are probably a lot less likely to call them out than someone in the general public. Makes it even more inappropriate, if that's even possible. I don't care if the cart girl is 17 or 35, or if the guy is 75 or 20. Just be a good person, the bar really isn't that high on this one

It used to be harmless before the modern day wonder drug !  Now we have these senior citizen want to be Don Juan.  Not thinking that harm might come one's way, when bending the way of the Nature meant it to be.  They must have been deprived when they were younger !

Sorry, it is just comical when people don't behave like their age group.  Acting silly/stupid does not give one's youth back.

i swear, a little money in their pockets and these guys think they can say anything they want to women

Look at all the good examples we have in recent days from the rich and powerful.  Once they have more zeros behind a number shown on their back account.... they thought they are Gods.  How fast will they falling down to the dust from the high and mighty.

t a minimum I’d have a hard time inviting them back to my club, even with a loaded tournament. 

Someone should have a little private talk with the Don Juan.  I wonder why people behave differently than at their office or at home ?  Would it be okay to hit on a guest at their house party, in front of their friends and family ?   Maybe that's the word, their family was not present.  There was no consequences for their behavior.  

We will be "guests" to the golf courses whether we're equity members or a daily fee player.  Don't abuse the privilege .

Absolute garbage. I've thankfully never had to deal with any of that from my playing partners, but I have twice at the gym had words with men in their 50's/60's about their eyes and my then teenaged daughter. Disgusting. 

I don't care what your age is. Be respectful and don't be a d-bag. Is that so difficult?

Fully understood how you feel as I'm a parent.  However, there is no way to stop someone from "eyeing"  ?  It's a built in magnesium for human to extend our existence.   Every healthy male have "eyeballs" attractive opposite sex no matter of their age group.  Being older or younger has nothing to do with this behavior.  Unless one walks around the gym with blindfolds, one couldn't help to look at the scenery, right ?  As long as one is not staring with eyeballs popping out of their sockets !  

It is totally different between "eyeballing" and the actual inappropriate  language/action taken.

His daughters are teenagers!!! There’s no acceptable amount of “eyeballing” in any shape or form that is acceptable in any way.  The fact that you think that is just being a guy is out of line.

I might catch some pushback here for being a party Kill. 
 

But I was talking to one of our young beverage cart drivers today.   Shes 22 the nicest and sweetest young woman you can meet.  Snd yes she is an attractive blonde.  But doesn’t flaunt her looks in the way she dresses or acts. 
 

As I usually do I asked her how the group was she worked   It was a 128 person fundraiser for a boating club.   She kind rolled her eyes and said.  It was Ok   At first I thought maybe low tips as it’s is a bunch of guys who when they come into the bar are notoriously (frugal).  
I said, oh poor tippers huh?   She said well that was expected.  I then asked   Did they behave themselves at least.  She said it depends on what you mean behave and laughed.   By now I was a bit worried   I said   Nobody put there hands on you or anything did they.    She said, well yeah, just a few creepy hugs that they Insisted on and lingered a bit too long. 
I apologized and said I would speak to the leader of the group.  She said, well yeah thats who it was.   But don’t worry. I know it comes with the territory.   But the comments were getting tiresome and by the end of the day more over the line.

One example she gave me was a guy—-in his 70’s or so, holding out a hand of dollar bills and said, you get one of these for each button that comes undone 🤦

I’m thinking.  Really grandpa a whole dollar.  What do you think this is Senior Day at the strip Club. 
 

She said there were more of those and guys taking pictures as she was getting drinks out of the cart (bending over) 

I mean really guys. I get it. I certainly don’t mind being waited on by a pretty woman with a nice personality.   But never take it beyond just being friendly and classy to her and most of all thanking her for being out there with some drinks.

Can’t these #**%^+ realize they probably have granddaughters like her.   Shes just trying to do her job make a little money before she goes back to school. 
 

I know younger guys in their 20’s can be out of line aswell.  But at least they are the same age and the creepiness factor isn’t as high.

So just don’t be that guy!  Please! 

 

 

Just just appalling. I would uninvite that group to all future events. And as to Mr. Dollar Bill Guy - escort him off the property - regardless of where his's at in the game.

This has nothing to do with their financial status. This is a rich and elite group.  They are a bunch of locals who grew up together.  Many of them are as far from Rich and Powerful as one can be.

I talked to my wife about the situation she said this exact thing, you’re at work and surrounded by men it’s tough to call them out as a woman

Never saw this reply to my post because thank you mute feature, but appreciate you Rob for calling this appalling mindset out. Just further solidifies why the mute feature is such a valuable tool on a forum such as this. Keeps you from having to read absolute trash.

You probably could, and you had never ever looked at the opposite gender in an interested way ?

The outfit they wear in the gym today will probably qualify as something else just 50 years ago.  Have your kids wear something that's more traditional would help.  Or daddy should build a private gym at home.🙃

Yes, as the study of group behavior could probably explain some of these out of line action.  Some dogs will be perfectly fine by itself but when grouped together, they'll exhibit aggressive behavior.  We are, after all, one of the species of the animal kingdoms.

If the basic needs were not met ( shelter and food ) , there would be low priority on the other desires.  These guys in the group obviously do okay, to join a local tournament for party time.  Obviously not serious golf tournament, to say the least.

The only pushback you get from me is singling out the seniors for being creepy.    Being in the same age group doesn't make it any better.  It's just plain wrong, regardless.  Just don't do it!  

Heck I’m 32 and single yet the only thing that has ever crossed my mind was she’s cute and back to my round I went never said anything never even thought of saying something to a cart girl. I just don’t get why anyone would do this I just feel like you lack ethics for doing this!

No but I’m also a respectable person, snapping pictures and making comments that are clearly unsolicited?  Yea no
