How do I get these golf clubs out of the living room?
We live in a very compact, urban condominium, and we have no basement, attic, or garage.
A few years ago, my father-in-law offered Paul his set of golf clubs. Without discussing the matter with me, Paul accepted and brought the clubs home. Because we have no place to store such things, Paul plopped them in our living room.
Paul doesn’t golf. None of his friends golf. Since landing in the living room, this set of golf clubs has never been touched or moved. The clubs are covered with dust, and they look ridiculous; they stick out like a sore thumb in a small, but otherwise nice, room. I’ve had to live with this situation for several years.
I know that this is a sentimental thing. Paul loves his father deeply and is proud to have something that once meant so much to him.
Paul and I have talked, countless times, about what to do with these unused golf clubs and their inappropriate “storage” location. Paul gets passive-aggressive and does nothing, whatsoever, to fix the problem.
I’m getting very tempted to take the golf clubs to our city’s refuse center and just leave them there. But, I know that this would be the wrong thing to do.
