    Teed off man uses golf club in clash over manners
    ETFALMOUTH, Mass. A man faces assault charges after allegedly striking another man with a golf club in an argument over manners. Police told the Cape Cod Times that a 50-year-old man leaving a gas station in town on Monday morning held the door open for a 38-year-old man.

    Police said the 38-year-old man did not thank the other man, who responded by uttering a sarcastic "thank you."

    The two men got into an argument before the 38-year-old went to his car to get a golf club, which he allegedly used to strike the victim several times in the stomach and legs. Police said the victim suffered minor injuries.

    The 38-year-old man pleaded not guilty to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in Falmouth District Court on Tuesday and was ordered to stay away from the other man.

    Good thing this moron didn't have a gun,I hope he realises if you beat the crap out of somebody you hold the door for it kinda takes away from the good deed

    From what I read, the older guy held the door for the younger guy, who then beat the crap out of him for his trouble.

    Must have been looking for a fight. Too bad the beaten guy didn't have a gun - then it would be one less BG with an attitude.

    First off, when are we going to get even COMPETENT journalists around. The "moron" isn't even the one who held the door!
    Though I love the Mass slant on this, trying to tie every bit of violence to guns. "see, if we had less gun control this would have been worse!!" Give me a break!

    That deal at the bottom was my 2 cents,I misread the story,The 38 year old needs to get put away for a couple years I bet he gets a big dose of anger management in prison when he becomes somebody Girlfriend

    I usually assume the "thank you" was just an oversight by them and tell them "You're Welcome" and continue on about my business.

    It's funny, when I hold a door for a man, I dont usually expect a thank you. I seem to be more upset when a woman seems to think she was entitled to the door being held and won't even look at me.

    When the officer said how many times did you hit him? The 38 year old said, "4, 5 times.. put me down for a 4"

    Indeed, although I do have a slight "what?" in my head when someone just walks right through my open door without so much as a nod, I don't really care. I'd rather that if I open the door for someone behind me, for example, that they'll do the same for the person behind them.

    To me, "paying it forward" makes me happier than a spoken thanks.
