Scene from the range

"We don't have any rifle lanes right you, there's a waiting list."

"We'll just shoot pistols.  When a rifle lane opens up, will you hold it for us?"

"Can't do that."

"Why not?"

"Because I can't hold a lane for you while you're shooting when someone else is waiting for one already."

"We'll come right out."

"Cannot do that."

"Why not?"

Through mind runs 'Because we're busy, people are waiting, you want me to not only hold a lane for you but LEAVE THE COUNTER AND GO GET YOU AND SCREW THE OTHER PEOPLE?'

I didn't, but I have never been closer to saying "BECAUSE I BLOODY SAID SO."

These are the same type people who come in with three people and state "We need three lanes" and get pissy when you tell them they can't have them.  Apparently "Because A: there aren't that many lanes free in the same bay and B: when it's this busy I can't give a group your size multiple lanes" cannot penetrate the shell of "I want it!" in their heads.

This is why I never shoot at indoor ranges. Too many goobers, Too many bullshit "rulers". I have 3000 acres to play on. No goobers there.
