10 Minutes Late
There was a man named George who got a new job. His fellow employees always met for a round of golf every Saturday morning. So they asked George to join them at 10:00 on Saturday. George replied that he would love to but that he may be 10 minutes late.
On Saturday morning, George was there at exactly 10:00. He golfed right handed and won the round.
Next Saturday rolled around, and George said that he would be there, but he may be 10 minutes late again. Again, he showed up right on time, golfed left handed, and won the round. This continued for the next few weeks, with George always saying that he may be 10 minutes late, and then always winning the round, golfing either left or right handed.
The other employees were getting tired of this, and decided to ask him what the deal was. They said, ”George, every Saturday you say you may be ten minutes late but you never are. Then you show up and golf either right handed or left handed, and always win. What is up with that?”
George replied, ”Well, I am a very superstitious kind of guy. Every Saturday when I wake up, I look over at my wife. If she is sleeping on her left side, I golf left handed. If she is sleeping on her right side, I golf right handed.”
”Well,” one of the employees questioned, ”What happens if she is laying on her back?”
George replied, ”Then I am 10 minutes late.”
