Last time it was Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit. This time it’s Dean Barnett of Hugh Hewitt’s Townhall.com column that Delta Airlines decided wasn’t worth spit. As I mentioned when Reynold’s post came up, the airlines should be starting to understand that they need to start handling customer service better. The “big boys” are going to start looking like small boys soon if they don’t.
One of the new expenses of my time that I’ve been working on is the game of golf. I started last year and have made enough progress that I can reliably play with clients and not besmirch my company’s name. (So far.) Up here in Connecticut while on vacation, I decided I was definitely going to get in a game so I hit the local par-3 course.
Now, a par-3 course is pretty much what it sounds like. The holes are all designed and ranged to be done in 3 strokes per hole. That makes for a much faster round of golf than on a full-size course and it allows for most of us to concentrate on the short-to-midrange game. I only pulled out my driver twice today.
Which is not to be confused as having done really well. I scored a 90. On any of the other courses I’ve played that would be worth a bottle of Dom Perignon, 1990. Being a par-3 course, however, shooting par would give you a score of (18 holes x 3) 54. A 90 is just a tad over that. It’s not the worst you can do (that’s a 108) but it shows a need for a lotta work.
Still, like the man said, a bad day golfing is better than a good day at work. Me? I’ll take that 90, any time.
