A Standing Bet
Two lawyers, Jon and Chuck, head out for their usual 9 holes of golf.
Jon offers Chuck a bet. "Let's say we bet $50."
Chuck agrees and they're off.
After the 8th hole, Chuck is ahead by one stroke, but cuts his ball into
the rough on the 9th. "Help me find my ball. Look over there," he said
After a few minutes, neither have any luck and a lost ball carries a two
stroke penalty, so Chuck pulls a ball from his pocket and tosses it to
the ground. "I've found my ball!" he announces.
Jon looks at him. "After all of the years we've been partners and
playing together, you'd cheat me out of a lousy 50 dollars?"
"What do you mean, cheat? I found my ball sitting right there!"
"And you're a liar, too!" Jon said. "I'll have you know I've been
STANDING on your ball for the last five minutes!"
