include a Woman
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 without him. 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 am. 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 late. 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 2-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 off-hand. 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 him up,
but each man began to harbor a burning desire to beat her!
In 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 keep 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 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 have always had fun switching back and
forth. Then when I met my husband in college and 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 were
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."
