>You’re entering a world of pain

>Sometimes a story comes along that show us why stereotypes are there in the first place. While stereotypes are never 100% perfect, they rarely evolve out of thin air either.

A golfer has a slow-play argument with the threesome in front of him. It continues for several holes, and spills into the parking lot at the course. The complaining golfer pulls a gun and tells them “If I feel threatened, I am morally obligated to destroy you.” The guy is 73 years old.

It would happen in Texas.

I’m sure it had something to do with Vietnam somehow, at least in his demented mind. The man in the black pajamas. A worthy (#&$)@(#&$ adversary.

Moral of the story: Let the guy play through next time. Life’s too short.
