Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse.
The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract’s sick-leave provisions.
One morning at the bargaining table, the company’s chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, “This man,” he announced, “called in sick yesterday!” There, on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score.
A union negotiator broke the silence in the room. “Wow,” he said. “Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn’t been sick!”

Ha!!! Yeah sickness really plays havoc with sports performance
It does indeed Tony. 🙂
He does make a good point. Might have a higher score – LOL.
You just never know Rhonda. 🙂
I have a friend who is an avid golfer… scratch golfer. I can only imagine one thing that would keep him off the course, and it ain't sick – they have to close the course. Bless his heart.
big hugs from foggy, soggy south jawjah xoxo
Yep, I know a few avid golfers too. 🙂
Hi Sandee!!! Sorry for my absence. I am looking forward to your laughs again 🙂 like this one.

You were busy and we all know that. It's all good. 🙂

I can't play golf because of the snow but soon. Have a great Tuesday Sandee. Say hi to Zane for me. See ya.
I know how you love to play golf Paul. 🙂
Have a great day!
Yes it is my friend. 🙂
Roche' says he's sick too. The little bugger says everything he reads. What a pistol. He wants soup and ginger ale. He says he's staying in bed all day too.
I'm sure he missed you while you were on your cruise. I didn't hear about him so I'm guessing he hung out with some hot guy. 🙂
A brilliant union negotiator. 🙂
And quick on his feet too. 🙂
That golfer will go on disability next week.
You might have a valid point here. 🙂
Very quick thinking. 🙂
Those union guys really stick together. Good one.
Big hugs, honey…
They sure do honey. Big hugs back. 🙂
Heeheehee! Maybe if he's dying, he'll win a Masters!
Perhaps you're right. 🙂
This is one for my husband. His score is actually getting better with practice. Now he wants me to start playing.
I know a lot of married folks that play golf together all the time. 🙂

What's sick leave? …..lol
I'm sorry you don't have sick leave Ann. It comes in handy if you use it properly. 🙂
MOL! I need a negotiator like that!
It was hard getting a photo of Isabella yawning because she doesn't yawn much since she's so well rested! 🙂 Angel yawns a lot though! Hope you're having a great day! Scritches to Little Bit!
We all need a negotiator like that.
That makes sense about Isabella. She does nap a lot. 🙂
Ha ha ha! BAM! In their faces!
Yep, that's pretty much how it went. 🙂
Priceless Sandy. xo Catherine
Yep, he's a smart one and then some. 🙂
Golf was probably prescribed by his doctor to cure his depression.
You could be right about this Binky. 🙂
