A pastor, a doctor, a lawyer and an engineer were playing golf. The foursome, who were very low-handicapped players, were playing on their normal golf course. Unusually, the play was very slow and the players began to get frustrated. By the tenth hole, they began firing their tee shots at the foursome ahead of them, who were constantly in the woods and were the root cause of the slow play.
Finally, the good foursome finished their round, coming in just under eight hours. After spotting the slow group in the clubhouse, they went right after them. The club pro saw this spectacle and pulled aside the guys. He said, "Didn't you know that the foursome ahead of you are all *blind*; they're taking part in a special event."
After hearing this, the foursome immediately had a change of heart. The pastor said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight." The doctor said, "Good idea. And I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist buddy and see if there's anything he can do for them." The lawyer said "I'll bet someone was negligent, I'll represent all four in court.
The club pro considered their new statements a great improvement. He turning to the fourth member, said, "And what are you going to do for them?"
The engineer, still noticeably upset, retorted, "Nothing, they could have played last night!"
