    Always Right, Even When Shooting Down A Helicopter

    | Finland | Top

    (At the golf course where I work, it’s been a very a hot day and an older man unfortunately has a stroke/heart attack in the middle of the range. The course is at a remote location, so a medical helicopter is called in and lands in the middle of the range. Another golfer comes over, obviously upset.)

    Golfer: “It’s my tee! I want to take my shot but the helicopter is blocking it.”

    Me: “Sir, there’s a medical emergency on the range so you’ll have to wait for a little while.”

    Golfer: “But it’s my shot! I pay good money to play here and it’s my shot!”

    Me: “Sir, someone may be dying over there. Please have some patience. It shouldn’t take long until they lift off.”

    Golfer: “If they get hit, it’s their own fault.”

    (The man then pulls a club out and before I can stop him, he swings and hits the helicopter.)

    Me: “Sir! For God’s sake, stop!”

    Golfer: “It’s my tee! They can just blame themselves for being in the way. I don’t have time for this!”

    (I ended up reporting him to the caddie master and range supervisors. His license was revoked and was banned from playing there ever again. Thankfully, the helicopter was not damaged and the patient was saved.)
