Postby Grip » Tue Mar 28, 2017 5:49 pm

Heeding the call: peeing? Punished: by law enforcement? By humans?

The call: a biological need? Or desire? An animal call? A human call?

Punished: fired? Fined? Jailed? Physically hurt? Chastised? Disciplinary action taken? Material loss? Loss of position or status?

Time period relevant? Location relevant?

Call of nature: eating? Drinking? Sleeping? Using the bathroom? Er...reproduction?

Was he disciplined by whoever he worked for? Did he cause financial loss? Or could have? Did he put himself or others in danger?

So you said no to Galfisk's "peeing" but yes to using the bathroom...so does that mean a number two, then? Is the difference there relevant? Because of the amount of time involved?

Does his job involve being at a particular location? A location that he leaves for a time? Does he cause inconvenience or confusion by being absent?

Or an individual sport? If so, some track & field event? swimming? cycling? skiing?

Was he supposed to sub for another player, but he missed it?

So a man was golfing in a tournament, but suddenly needed to use the bathroom, so he got in a golf cart, which was against the rules for a player to do during the tournament, and drove to the clubhouse to relieve himself. In so doing, he was penalized with some additional strokes added to his score. Missing anything?

***** SPOILER *****

Scott Laycock was penalized two shots in the Sony Open for accepting a ride in a cart to the nearest bathroom. Nature called for him on the second tee and the nearest bathroom was a hike away. Laycock didn't think he would make it in time, so he took a golf cart ride to the area. Players are not permitted to ride in carts during tournament rounds unless it's an "emergency." Since Scott did not have diarrhea, the tour official decided that Scott's predicament didn't qualify as one and penalized him. "That did give me diarrhea," Laycock joked afterward.
