Oh yea, gotta love it when a friend has to have the latest and greatest and gives you that 1/2 or 1 season old gear.
I get new sleeves of golf balls all the time as everyone at work just hands them to me because that's not the brand they play or they don't need anymore.
I have 2 stand bags I got for free that were pretty much new. Oh, I don't like Taylor Made or I don't play Titleist! I'll take em!
I also get nice golf shirts all the time as well. Can't remember the last time I bought a Polo shirt.
I guess I do pretty good on the freebie golf side.
I always liked to think that the voting for elections, referandums etc. in the UK was pretty straight forward. In its basic form, for a general election lets say, we simply go to the polling station (provided the voter is registered) and are given a piece of paper with the names of the Parties or candidates running in the election, put a cross in the box next to the one you want to vote for and pop it in the ballot box.
I think it's the fairest way of doing it. If you get the most votes you win. Yes, there is more that goes on in the back ground but in laymans terms thats it really.
We did have issues with regards to Brexit, with people admitting they voted to leave the EU because, in their own words, "we didnt think it would actually happen".
In the case of Brexit the system fell down somewhat because the larger percentage of the leave vote were the "older" generation and many of the "remain" were the younger (think a report said group were the under 25's), student voters and only about 70 or so percent (dont quote me on that may be a little less) actually turned out to vote, again because they didnt think "leave" would win so they didnt bother. We are still moaning about it now (we Brits are good at moaning)
Its a simple voting system but only works when people can be bothered to go and vote, even though you can do it on-line!
Now, if we had the US style voting god know what would happen as i have no idea how you guys cope, it seems so confusing
