    Is it okay to call my neighbor a pet peeve? She cant pay her utility bills yet somehow finds money to travel all the way to Africa for some Burning Man event.

    Nothing bothers me more than when Im trying to demo clubs at a golf store and some young up and comer sales clerk starts offering swing tips when all I want to do is try the frickin club out.

    The other day Im at Golftown in Edmonton. I have a couple of hours to kill so I try some of the F9 series. About half way through, a new sales kid comes and asks how its going. As I keep swinging hes becoming more involved.

    Towards the end of the demoing he asks so what are you working on? So I tell him and he starts scoffing. I tell him Ive done 2 winters at Golftec and I have a really good idea of what I need to work on. He laughs. And then it begins. He tells me that golf is simple, its all about 3 fingers on my lead hand and my centre of gravity. He then gives me a website to go to fix my swing. I was so pissed off, I politely told him Im done my session and left.

    I cannot stand when these guys come to me with their methods and unsolicited swing advice. F#&k off.

    Sorry for the rant.

    Thats my pet peeve.

    Same thing has happened to me. I always enjoy golf talk but at a certain point I'm not too shy to tell them to "go away please".

    I had one guy that really got under my skin so I told him we should play heads up, he chooses the course and I'll pay. All of a sudden he was injured.

    That’s my pet peeve.
    Had a similar interaction with the "golf associate" at my local GofTown. I asked him if he had any double sided tape as I am getting ready to re-grip my clubs, he said that they did not have any on hand and that I should check with Home Depot or any other hardware store. He then politely excused himself as he said that he had a club fitting to do. I am interested to know what clubs he "fit" with the unsuspecting purchaser?
