I also "love to hate" the overuse of these: "like", "went missing", and "looking to". We are really getting lazy in our use of the English language.

72 is a huge number. Either

72 is a huge number. Either some one can't count or the company has [filtered word] poor mangement. Missing......in this case that's not the proper word to use!

So these guys would break in

So these guys would break in every night and keep spacing the carts further apart so they wouldn't notice. 72 (yeah par as MadSnapper said) was the limit? That's how you explain it to the tax man.

You wouldn't miss them if you

You wouldn't miss them if you had terrible accounting procedures, no separation of duties and easily forged paperwork.

I wonder how many golf carts

I wonder how many golf carts they usually keep in stock to make it possible for 72 of them to be overlooked until the inventory was made?

It would be pretty difficult

It would be pretty difficult to make off with 72 golf carts in one haul. Someone knew what was going on.

If you'd like to hide 72 golf

If you'd like to hide 72 golf cars from me, just place them near the green, I'll never find them.

This is a bunch of BS.

This is a bunch of BS. Obviously an owner who has no clue as to what is going on at his business OR an owner who is hiding 72 golf carts somewhere waiting on an insurance payment.
