Thread: You hear Retreat playing, so what do you do?

    Default You hear Retreat playing, so what do you do?

    You're playing golf on a course adjacent to the base and you hear the music loud and clear.

    Do you play the "I'm a UC-Berkeley grad, leave me alone" card, or do you stop what you're doing an face the music?

    Do you pretend the group on the hole behind you are Muslim extremists who would be "offended," so you keep moving, or do you stop and face the music?

    Always seemed awkward to hear the music, but not be "technically" on base to act.

    Definitely an awkward situation, would be similar to walking by a baseball stadium and hearing the national anthem playing. Call me a commie bastard, but if I'm not in the "venue" the music is playing for (i.e., the base or baseball stadium), then I'm going with pressing on with what you're doing.

He should sweep the street so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. "

    I still stop what I'm doing.

    Me, I would face the music and render appropriate honors.

    Because its a golf cart on a golf course. Not a main road with heavy traffic.
