Why don't people just relax and worry about themselves, live and let live, not assume they know better, and just carry on with their day?  Basically picking on mefree here ... what is the entire point of this thread?  To start a flame war against people WE THINK may not be handicapped and are using handicap placards anyway?  Why?  We don't know them.  We don't know they aren't handicap.  And to top it off, we do know that they aren't bothering us.

 

And on the flip side, if they, in fact, are not handicap, then again, what's the point of the thread?  They're a$$holes, and 100% of people who aren't them would agree with you that they're a$$holes, so why waste everybody's time getting riled up and talking about a$$holes?

 

Anyways, sorry about the rant (just get a little bummed by the quantity of "lets bitch about other people" threads on here) and off my soapbox now.

 

I'm glad you said that, it's what I was thinking.If I didn't already play golf and was exposed to only what I've read on these forums sometimes, I'm not sure it would sound like fun.

Judging from the recent replies, I'm guessing GolfingDad and WhySoSerious might agree with me.  In answer to the OP's question, the handicapped guy is the one who lets himself be annoyed by the actions of others on the course.  I'm guilty, and I'm guessing I'm not alone.  I've been known to rant about people who don't rake their bunkers, drive the cart the length of the fairway on 90-degree days, or take 20 minutes looking for a lost ball.  Sadly, I've sometimes let it turn a relaxing round into a stressful day.  It's posts like this that help remind me to let my handicap go.  No telling how many strokes that stress has cost me over the years.  :-)

I see that just about 1/2 of the threads in this forum are pretty silly.   This one isn't any sillier than others.  In fact, if you go down the list of topics in the forum, it's a laugh and I laugh with them.   It's more fun that way.

I apologize to those who took this the wrong way- I didn't mean it to be a rant or to offend anyone.  I simply thought it was funny that the fastest I saw anyone run to a cart all season was to a cart parked in a very awkward position with a handicap flag.  Our group laughed about it and it didn't ruin anyone's day.  I was thinking others might find it amusing also.
