Description: Golf - A Hole Behind
A man had to go to a strange town to be a guest speaker at a business
meeting. When he arrived at the motel, he found that he had a lot of time
left before his meeting started. Being an avid golfer, he asked the clerk
where the nearest golf course was located.
While playing the front nine, he was going over his speech in his mind
and became confused as to where he was on the course. Looking around, he
saw a lady playing ahead of him. He walked up to her, told her about his
upcoming meeting, the speech he was about to make, his confusion on the
course and politely asked her if she knew which hole he was playing. She
replied: "I'm on the 7th hole and you are a hole behind me.....so you
must be on the 6th hole." He thanked her and continued with his game.
On the back nine the same thing happened. Once again he approached her
with the same request. She said: "I'm on the 14th hole.....you are a hole
behind me, so you must be on the 13th hole." He again thanked her and
returned to his game.
He finished his round and went into the clubhouse where he saw the very
same lady sitting at the bar. He asked the bartender if he knew her. The
bartender indicated that she was a saleslady and as a club member, she
played the course quite often. He approached her and said: "Let me buy
you a drink to show my appreciation for your help on the course today. I
understand that you're a saleslady and I'm in sales as well. What do you
sell?" She replied: "If I told you, you would only laugh." "No I will
not,", he said and insisted that she tell him what she sold. "Well if you
must know", she answered, I sell Tampax." With that, he fell on the floor
and laughed so hard he almost lost his breath. She said: "See, I told you
that you'd laugh." "That's not what I'm laughing at", he replied, I'm a
toilet paper salesman so I'm still behind you!"
