Four golfing buddies head out to the country club to play a round of golf one early bright Sunday morning. One is detained in the clubhouse, and the other three are discussing their grown children while walking to the first tee.
“My son Bill,” says one, “has made quite a name for himself as a contractor in the home-building industry. He began as a carpenter, but he now owns his own design and construction firm. He’s so successful in fact, that in the last year, he was able to give a good friend a brand new home as a gift.”
The second man, not to be out-done, tells how his son began his career as a car salesman, but now owns a multi-line auto dealership. “George is so successful in fact, that in the last six months, he gave his friend two brand new cars as a gift.”
The third man’s son, Albert, has worked his way up through a stock brokerage firm, and in the last few weeks, has given a good friend a large stock portfolio as a gift.
As the fourth man finally arrives, from the clubhouse, at the tee, another tells him that they have been discussing their offspring’s successes and then proceeds to ask what line of work his son is in.
“To tell you the truth, I’m not very pleased with how my son turned out,” he replies. “For 15 years, Frank’s been a hairdresser, and I’ve just recently discovered he’s gay. On the bright side however, he must be good at what he does because his last three boyfriends have given him a brand new house, two cars, and a big pile of stock certificates.”
