A man goes to a public golf course. He approaches the man behind the counter in
the pro shop and says, "I would like 18 holes of golf and a caddie."
The man behind the counter says, "The 18 holes of golf is no problem, but all of
the caddies are out on the course. What I will do for you is this: We just
received 8 brand new robot golf caddies. If you're willing to take one with you
out on the course and come back and tell me how well it works, your round of
golf is on me today."
The golfer obviously accepted the man's offer. He approached the first tee,
looked at the fairway and said to himself, "I think my driver will do the job."
The robot caddie turned to the man and said, "No sir.. Use your 3 wood. A driver
is far too much club for this hole." Hesitantly, the golfer pulled out his 3
wood, made good contact with the ball, and the ball landed about 10 feet to the
right front of the hole on the green.
The golfer, delighted, turned to the robot and thanked him for his assistance.
As the golfer pulled out his putter he said, "I think this green is gonna break
left to right." The robot then again spoke up and said, "No sir. I do believe
this green will break right to left."
Thinking about the last time the robot corrected his prediction, he decided
again to listen to the machine.. He made his putt and birdied the hole thanks to
the robot and his advice. But his luck didn't end there. His entire game was the
best game he ever played, thanks to the assistance of the new robot golf caddie.
Upon returning to the clubhouse, the man behind the counter asked, "How was your
The golfer stated, "It was, by far, the BEST game I ever played. Thank
you very much for letting me take one of your robots. See you next week."
A week passed, and excited, the golfer returned to the pro shop. Upon entering,
he turned to the man behind the counter and said, "I would like 18 holes of golf
and one of those robot golf caddies, please."
The gentleman from behind the counter turned to the man and said, "Well the 18
holes is no problem. However, we had to get rid of the robots. We had too many
"COMPLAINTS? Who in the heck could've complained about those robots? They were
The man sighed and said, "Well, it wasn't their performance. It was that they
were made of shiny silver metal, and the sun reflecting off them was blinding to
other golfers on the fair way."
The golfer said, "So then why didn't you just paint them black?"
The man nodded sadly and replied, "We did. Then four of 'em didn't show up for
work, two filed for welfare, one of them robbed the pro shop, and the other
thinks he's the President."
