I'm striping drives to the back of the rage on the fly and this older gentleman walks up to me and asks me how I hit the ball like that. He was about 70 years old. He observes me hitting and asks if he could hit my driver. I politely said no.
Sounds like you enjoy being proud of yourself.
Putting aside the passive (active?) brag part of the post, I will never understand people who think it's okay to go up to a complete stranger and ask to hit their driver.
Would you say to a stranger, "Hey nice phone, can I try calling someone on it?" or "Hey nice car, can I drive it?" or "Hey nice wife, can I...," well you get the idea.
thats the thing 30 plus years ago when cell phones first came about, i had one for work. I was a contractor salesman for Lowes and did outside sales. I had people ask me could they call their girlfriend or their mom to just talk on a cell phone. you had to tell them, they charge by the min. Finally I used to say, it would be 5 bucks to use my phone.
Just shows how modern technology has changed. And there were driving range hacks way back then. i had a 71 Grand Sport Buick with a 455 in it when i was in high school and college. I used to get asked all the time could someone drive it. And of course "swingers" been around centuries.
Exactly right. When I was a freshman in high school I got a pair of the original Nike Air basketball shoes. They were $90 at the time (1983 - I still remember my mother's apoplectic reaction at the store when we bought them). One of my teammates wore the same shoe size as me, and kept badgering me to let him wear them so he could try them out. I relented and let him wear them for one game....and he sprained his ankle. He never asked again.
