A man had two of the best tickets for the Augusta Masters.
As he sits down, another man comes along and asks if anyone is sitting inthe seat next to him.
”No”, he says, ”the seat is empty.”
”This is incredible!” said the man, ”who in their right mind would have a seat like this, the biggest golfing event of the whole world, and not use it?”
He says, ”Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife always would come with me, but she passed away. This is the first Masters we haven’t been to together since we got married.”
”Oh… I’m sorry to hear that. That’s terrible. I guess you couldn’t
find someone else?.. a friend or relative or even a neighbour to take the seat?”
The man shakes his head…
….”No. They’re all at the funeral.
