Well, I hope they go light on the old feller..............I've felt that way myself, at times.

    Old dude is lucky he did not catch a bullet. Swinging a golf club at someone's head is deadly force, and he is lucky no one deadly forced back at him.

    83 and still playing golf, good for him. Wonder if it was a nine iron, like Tiger!!

    Good grief, what an ****. He deserves some really hard punishment, regardless of his age.

    I get them "Prize" offers in the mail with fake keys that say if they fit you win a free car all the time..................or scratch off unbelievable discounts.........anything to lure you in fer a test drive. But I don't expect to really "Win" anything and they go straight into the trash.

    Old guy was pissed he didn't win a prize.............he should have learned by now at his age there ain't no such thing as a free lunch, always some strings attached to try and sell you something.

    Then again, car salesmen....................

    If the twit salesman had been less involved videoing on his cellbrainphone he might have seen that club coming at his noggin. :rotflmao:
    Seriously, fools whip out that cell phone to video something and not pay attention to what's happening around them. Darwin finding a new way to take out the unfit?

    I doubt the salesman was negligent in taping, I think he was probably covering his ass in case he got sued for false promises.

    The old guy won't get any time; at 83, what are you going to do to him? If he'd been 20, let him do some time, but at 83 he won't be rehabilitated. Punishment is being 83 and mentally unhinged. Some small jail time, probably. He's crazy with old age.

    When I clicked on the video, the newscast was preceded, LOL, by a Toyota commercial. You can't make this stuff up.

    Politicians/TV Preachers/Ins Salesmen/Car Salesmen.....................about all in the same boat.............there are some exceptions, but few a far between for me.

    From a fiscal standpoint, if you incarcerate an 83 YOA individual, you're looking at some severe maintenance costs...medicine, etc. Which is why he won't get much if any jail time. Unless he really creamed the salesman and left an ear hanging off.

    That could probably be said about over half the sales force at any stealership- - - - - - -there's a huge turnover at most places.

    Having bought a new truck in 2005 and get my current one serviced in the same dealership I get these offers in the mail all the time from them. I don't see why the sales guy has to be hit with a car and clubbed into submission, just because he was the one to give the less-than-satisfactory prize to the old fart with a golf club. It's like clubbing the sales clerk at the convenience store for selling you a $5 million lottery ticket that lost or turned into a $5 winner. I don't think being 83 excuses his behavior.
