A man goes to a public golf course. He approaches the man in the pro shop and says, "I would like 18 holes of golf and a caddie, please."
The man says, "The golf is no problem, but all the caddies are taken at present. Here's what I can do for you: We just received 8 brand new robot caddies. If you're willing to try one out on the course and tell me how it works out, your round of golf will be free."
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." But the robot caddie said, "No sir. Use your 3 wood. A driver is too much for this hole."
Reluctantly, the golfer used his 3 wood, and the ball landed about 10 feet from the hole.
The golfer, delighted, turned to the robot and thanked him for his assistance.
As the golfer pulled out his putter he said, "I think the putt will break left to right."
The robot again spoke up, "No sir. I do believe this green will break right to left."
Thinking about the last time the robot corrected him, he decided to listen to the machine. He made his putt and birdied the hole. But his luck didn't end there. His entire game wasthe best he ever played, thanks to the assistance of the new robot golf caddie.
On his return to the clubhouse, the man behind the counter asked, "How was it ?"
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 the excited golfer returned to the pro shop. He said, "I would like 18 holes of golf and one of those robot golf caddies, please."
The man behind the counter said, "Well the 18 holes is no problem. However, we had to get rid of the robots. We had too many complaints."
"COMPLAINTS? Who could've complained about those robots? Mine was incredible"
The man sighed and said, "Well, it wasn't their performance. It was that they were made of shiny metal, and the sun reflecting off them was blinding other golfers on the fairway."
The golfer said, "So then why didn't you just paint them black?"
The man nodded sadly and replied, "We did, sir. 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."
