I don't know about you but I hate people who talk loudly about any given subject, they are most annoying, and Pee me off to distraction.
I was sitting in the Doctors surgery waiting room yesterday, and these two chaps came in, and seats themselves (I will come back to this in a minute).
They were talking LOUDLY about a subject (Sport) I hate with a passion, and every one I have ever known who plays this sport is arrogant to the Nth degree, and they look down their noses at everyone else that doesn't partake in this idiotic sport, and that sport is the dreaded GOLF "Shivers".

They were talking as though it was a new sport, and every one should play it, they were talking about something called "Birdies", Albatrosses, and the like.
At first I thought they had shot these birds down with their Golf balls, but I got the picture after a while.
I can't for the life of me understand what anybody sees in that game, I mean they go out in all weathers (I think just to escape the wife).
I mean there is hundreds of Golfers die each year by playing in a lighting storm, or being hit by golf balls or dying of a heart attack, it's a VERY dangerous sport.

Anyway these two chaps were getting on my nerves that much I just had to say something, I looked them straight in the eye,and I said.
"Excuse me gentlemen but I don't want to hear about your handicap, or your swing, and it's my guess that other people don't either, so will you shut the hell up, and give us some peace" I was greeted by applause from the rest that were waiting there.

There two fat faces were a picture, and one of them stood up, and went to the reception desk to complain, and was greeted by a firm telling off by the receptionist, who I might add was a right old Harpy, and subsequently told that they must come up to desk to register for their appointments (I said I would come back this).
The rest of the waiting room guffawed, and he sat down with a red face, and there was a deathly silence from those two after that.
People go to a doctors surgery because they are ill, and they don't want to listen to a couple of old farts talking loudly about an idiotic sport do they?
I love it when a plan comes together, and it would seem that the rest of the waiting room didn't like Golf either.
So for those ATS users that has a love of this sport, and persist on talking loudly among people that have no interest in the sport, think again?.

Tony

Nice rant, and you tell the story well. Kudos to you for telling the loudmouths where to go. Would love to have seen that myself.

I've played golf a few times, and the only enjoyment I recall getting out of it was driving around in the cart and getting drunk. All the same, no need to talk about it loudly around others who could not care less. Same goes for any subject.

I understand this is a rant, however,
golf is a challenging "spot" and it's somewhat fun as it requires the honing of skill.

I don't really care about sports. An embarrassing story, I was waiting for a bus and a guy asked me about a press conference with a coach for our college football team. I reply, "oh, we getting rid of him?" since we had a bad season and he replies, "no, we are hiring him." I attempt to save face by saying that I wasn't very into football... a few minutes later I realized I was wearing a college football shirt.... w/e laundry day.

As I understand it, sports are good for small talk among guys. I'm sorry that their voices annoyed you...

I think you were incredibly rude to say something like that to a pair of people who were talking in public. It doesn't matter whether you "only did it because they were rude" or whatever excuse you're going to pull out, two wrongs don't make a right and you should lead by example.

Imagine the reverse situation, you're talking loudly (inadvertently) about something you love with a friend, it could be your kids, your job, your car, whatever, and somebody tells you to shut up. How would you feel?

If you see those men at the surgery again you should apologise and hope that they are nicer people than you.

I think your reaction was a little too extreme
I mean I hate loud people too but they must be screaming their lungs out for me to actually think of doing something
like that woman who got kicked out from a train

I hate rude people.. but I despise arrogant people..

So they were old? maybe they were a little deaf and talked loud to help them hear.
Sorry OP I forgot It is illegal to talk to a pal out loud.
It's not like they were in a cinema was it?
Oh and everyone clapped? ok I believe you...

I agree. I don't always realize how loud I am talking.

They weren't in public. They were in a doctors waiting room. A small space were almost everyone waiting has some kind of health problem. It is called using your brain, empathy and common sense to speak quietly in such an environment.
Unfortunately a lot of people lack those basic skills and I think the OP was very much within her right to tell them to shut up.
Some on this thread seem to think that everyone has a given right to do whatever they like, wherever they are. Well in a civilised society there are no laws against this but common decency would tell you that sometimes you can't do what you like.
It is this mindset that causes so much anger.
Restraint and politeness in the right places however create a pleasant place to live for everyone.
Those two were stupid and selfish and obviously have been brought up this way.
Everyone who tries to find an excuse for behaviour like that is just as clueless and adds to an uncomfortable society .

In other words, the world would be a much better place if everyone just listened to you.

In general, what you said is narrow minded and self centred as the rest of the people in the world don't exist for your comfort. We aren't here to make sure you are happy and calm throughout your life - if you find yourself in a situation you are uncomfortable with, that's unfortunate, but to embarrass other people in the way the OP of this thread did is downright despicable. Not to mention you're just shifting the uncomfortable situation from you to them.

In this specific instance, what you said is narrow minded and self centred as those people were in a GP waiting room, maybe talking about golf took their mind off the crippling burden of their multiple terminal diseases, maybe they were partially deaf, maybe they were just having fun. Who knows? All I know is that the OP embarrassed and upset two people he or she didn't know in public to save himself or herself 5 minutes of overhearing inane chatter.

As an aside, I don't think any adult in the world (except hermits) can claim to have never pissed someone off, intentionally or not.

Hi Hecate666 I suppose we have a lot of ignorant people on here but you i agree with. The motto of this forum is "Deny ignorance" judging by half the replies i have had people should go, and learn about ignorance.
I reiterate "It was a doctors surgery waiting room, and it's full of ill people"

In a Doctors surgery waiting room YES, and they weren't deaf, and they were about 50, and believe it or not they didn't wear hearing aids. Everyone did applaud, i don't lie, i pride myself on my honesty. Maybe i'm too honest for people, and people shy away from honesty these days.

So you've never ever ever accidentally done something you didn't mean to? Your entire life has been a compendium of perfectly considered actions and nothing else? You've never knocked over someone's drink? You've never let out a gasp of pain when you stub your toe in a library? You've never been with a group of friends and walked single file without realising along the pavement? You've never posted an inane or mundane facebook comment or tweet? You've never had any electronic devices on in your house loud enough for your neighbours to hear? You've never engaged someone in a conversation they clearly weren't interested in? You've never let your attention wander on a bus and stared at someone without noticing? You've never laughed at something you remembered in the vicinity of someone with low self-esteem and made them think you were laughing at them? You've never spent more than 5 seconds looking for your money when in a queue in a shop? I could go on and on all day, but I'll leave it there.

As for the deny ignorance comment you made, I fail to see how that phrase applies here. Please explain.

Edit: people being ill doesn't mean they suddenly need insulation from the world. If I couldn't handle overhearing a conversation when I was ill I think I'd be more than physically ill.

You also seem to be forgetting the fact that these people must have been ill as well, unless they just wandered in to the waiting room to talk loudly and piss you off.
