Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Saturday, July 12

Holy impatience, Batman!

A priest, a psychologist, and an efficiency expert are playing a round of golf when they become caught behind a VERY slow twosome, who, despite a caddy, are taking all day to line up their shots and four-putting every green. By the eighth hole, the three are complaining loudly about the slow play ahead of them.

"Holy Mary," exclaims the priest, "I pray that those two should take some lessons before they play again."

The psychologist comments, "I swear there are people that like to play golf slowly."

And the efficiency expert says, "I really did not expect to spend this much time playing a round of golf."

One more hole and they have HAD it with slow play: so the psychologist goes to the caddy and demands that they be allowed to play through. The caddy agrees, explaining that the two golfers are blind, that both are retired firemen who lost their eyesight saving people in a fire (which explains their slow play), and could the three please not complain so loudly.

The priest is mortified. "Here I am a man of the cloth, and I have been complaining about the slow play of two blind men."

The psychologist is also mortified. "Here I am, a man trained to help others with their problems, and I have been complaining about the slow play of two blind men."

The efficiency expert ponders the situation for a few moments. Finally he goes back to the caddy: "Listen, the next time, could they play at night?"
