I’ve been trying to get out on the golf course a little more lately. After all, it is summertime! The weather has not been cooperating in the warmth department, but I’ve managed a few dry, if not chilly days out there. But, I’ve noticed that the etiquette of my gal buddies has been declining. They talk too much. And they talk incessantly. Good golf etiquette means that if someone is getting ready to take a shot, then you stop your conversation until that person hits the ball. It’s not happening, ladies. There are some of my partners that just cannot stop talking. I can stand over the ball forever waiting for quiet, and they just don’t get the hint or they keep talking in a loud whisper. So, I guess it’s up to me to change the way I deal with the distraction. I like these women, and love the socialization (and exercise) that happens during a golf game. But, it’s getting so I dread meeting up with certain ones of the group. I haven’t quite figured how to deal with it. If I ask for quiet too many times, then I will be considered a ‘you-know-what’ ‘b’ word. Can’t have that. If I let it continue to ruin my golf game, then the game will become less attractive to me and I will more than likely stay away more. So, the dilemma is there. I haven’t figured it out yet. Unfortunately, this is one problem I don’t think BTD can solve.
