A MAN playing on a new golf course got confused as to what hole he was on, but he noticed a lady playing ahead of him and walked up to ask her if she knew.

“Well, I’m on the seventh hole, and you’re a hole behind me, so you must be on the sixth hole,” she replied.

The man thanked her and went back to his game.

But later, on the back nine, he again became uncertain about what hole he was on, and approached the lady again to ask her.

“I’m on the 14th,” she said, “so since you’re a hole behind me, you must be on the 13th.”

The man thanked her again and finished his round without further incident.

Back at the clubhouse, he noticed the lady who’d helped him sitting at the bar. “Let me buy you a drink to thank you for your help earlier,” he offered.

She accepted, and they were soon chatting away about what they each did for a living. It turned out they were both in sales. The man asked the lady what she sold.

“If I told you,” she replied, “you would only laugh.”

“No I wouldn’t, I swear,” the man said.

“Well,” the lady replied, “I sell tampons.”

With that, the man fell about laughing.

“See! I knew you would laugh.”

“That’s not what I’m laughing at,” the man replied.

“It’s just that I’m a toilet paper salesman – so it looks like I’m still one hole behind you!”
