Back in the day........
people usually identified the social ettiquette and how to deport themselves in public. The same "I don't see a problem" ethic of today is usually why we have threads such as "I don't see a problem with tiger spitting on the green" or "I don't see a problem wearing jeans on the course" or "I don't see a problem using a cell phone on the course".
The main problem IS you don't see. Todays society is so wrapped up in their own personal bubble that they have no clue or respect for their surroundings or the people that come within it. They have no idea of what they may or may not be doing my cause harm or upset the feelings of others.
So the next time you park you car sideways between two parking spaces, kick the seat of the person in front of you on the plane, break wind in a restaurant, vomit over a waitress in a bar or just shoot somebody for cash, spare thought for the other people who may not share your opinion of "I don't see a problem with it". Are we clear - or do we really need to dumb it down further?
It's a mark of respect and etiquette - similar to not walking on a players line, talking during someones swing, not raking a bunker, not repairing your pitchmark, not replacing your divots. You get the picture. Problem?
I don't SEE... that's funny...
That litany of infractions you listed involve 'victims'. Those actions have an effect on someone else's end result
I understand etiquette and I am quite considerate. However, I don't see how not removing one's cap somehow 'hurts' someone else. Besides making someone [size="4"]I[/size] don't know think [size="4"]I'm[/size] classless.
I guess that sentence just about sums it up for me.
