Thank God somebody understands what I'm talking about!
Yes! And you get it too! The amount tendered SHOULD NOT matter, just what is left in the till that is the store's "take"! This is just the "anal" nature of American business these days! They spend dollars chasing pennies!
I shot a 92 at the home course on Friday, could have been sub 90 but I had some bad breaks on one par 5 hole. Biggest improvement was off the tee, I hit the fairway 55% and my misses (except one) weren't penalty type misses, so I was able to hit decent 2nd shots. My index is trending down slowly but I'll be happy as long as it keeps heading lower.
I call them participation trophy parents. They want their kids involved in sports but don't want them to deal with any of the harshness and reality of competitive sports.
Statements like "I think she had enough penalty strokes on that hole" is their mentality. Let's break the rules so poor Jane doesn't feel bad and her score is so bad we can't go home and brag to our family and friends on how great she did.
Participation trophy parents do a disservice to their own kids and others who have to deal with their tantrums and poor sportsmanship.
