A man, while playing on the
front nine of a complicated golf course, 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, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what 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 went back to his golf. On the back nine the same thing
happened; and he approached her again 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."
Once again he thanked her and returned to his play.
He finished his round and went to the clubhouse where he saw the same lady
sitting at the end of the bar. He asked the bartender if he knew the lady. The
bartender said that she was a sales lady and played the course often.
He approached her and said, "Let me buy you a drink in appreciation for your
help. I understand that you are in the sales profession. I'm in sales, also.
What do you sell?"
She replied, "If I tell you, you'll laugh." "No, I won't."
"Well, if you must know," she answered, "I work for Tampax."
With that, he laughed so hard he almost lost his breath. She said, "See I knew
you would laugh."
"That's not what I'm laughing at," he replied. "I'm a salesman for Preparation
H, so I'm still a hole behind you!"
