Humor for the Golf Competitor
Fifteen Minutes Late
Four lawyers in a law firm lived and died for their Saturday morning round
of golf. It was their favorite moment of the week. Then one of the lawyers
was transferred to an office in another city. It wasn.t quite the same
Then a new woman lawyer joined their law firm. One day she overheard the
remaining three talking about their golf round at the coffee table. Curious,
she spoke up, .You know, I used to play on my golf team in college and I was
pretty good. Would you mind if I joined you next week?.
The three lawyers looked at each other. They were hesitant. Not one of them
wanted to say yes, but she had them on the spot. Finally one man said it
would be okay, but they would be starting pretty early at 6:30 a.m. He
figured the early tee-time would discourage her immediately. The woman said
this might be a problem and asked if she could possibly be up to 15 minutes
They rolled their eyes but said this would be okay. She smiled and said,
Good, then I'll be there either at 6:30 or 6:45..
She showed up right at 6:30 and wound up beating all three of them with an
eye-opening two-under-par round. She was a fun and pleasant person the
entire round. The guys were impressed! Back in the clubhouse they
congratulated her and happily invited her back the next week. She smiled and
said, Sure, I'll be here at 6:30 or 6:45..
The next week she again showed up at 6:30 Saturday morning. Only this time,
she played left-handed. The three lawyers were incredulous as she still
managed to beat them with an even-par round despite playing with her left
By now the guys were totally amazed, but wondered if she was just trying to
make them look bad by beating them left-handed. They couldn.t figure her
out. She was again very pleasant and didn.t seem to be showing them up, but
each man began to harbor a burning desire to beat her!
The third week they all had their game faces on. But this week she was 15
minutes late! This had the guys irritable because each was determined to
play the best round of golf of his life to beat her. As they waited for her;
they figured her late arrival was some petty gamesmanship on her part.
Finally she showed up. This week the lady lawyer played right-handed which
was a good thing since she narrowly beat all three of them. However, she was
so gracious and so complimentary of their strong play, it was hard to hold a
grudge against her. This woman was a riddle no one could figure out! Back in
the clubhouse she had all three guys shaking their heads at her ability.
They had a couple of beers after their round, which helped the conversation
loosen up. Finally, one of the men could contain his curiosity no longer. He
asked her point blank, How do you decide if you're going to golf
right-handed or left-handed?
The lady blushed and grinned. She said, .That.s easy. When my dad taught me
to play golf, I learned I was ambidextrous; I've always had fun switching
back and forth. Then when I met my husband in college and we got married, I
discovered he always sleeps in the nude. From then on I developed a silly
habit. Right before I left in the morning for golf practice, I would pull
the covers off him. If his you-know-what was pointing to the right, I golfed
right-handed; if it was pointed to the left, I golfed left-handed. All the
girls on the team thought this was hysterical.
Astonished at this bizarre information, one of the guys shot back, .But what
if it's pointed straight up in the air?
She said, Then I.m fifteen minutes late..
