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. 'I'm on the 7th hole,' she replied,
'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.
'I'm on number 14, and you're still a hole behind, 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're in the sales
profession. I'm in sales also. What do you sell?'
'I'll tell you, but you're going to laugh,' she replied.
'No, I won't.'
'Well, if you must know,' she answered, 'I work for Tampax.'
With that, he laughed so hard he lost his balance and fell off the
'See,' she said. 'I knew you'd 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.'
