We had gathered for another round of strateegery for one of our newer clients, First Security Bank. It was the usual pre-meeting chit chat, when one of the FSB’s told this great story about a friend, playing golf in the south.
The friend was out on a course with some buddies when one of them hit their ball into the tall grass. “Just forget about it!” “Oh, I can find it!” “Better watch out for the snakes!” “They won’t bother me!”
As the guy headed into the grass, the practical joker of the group reached into his pocket, pulled out a container of Tic Tacs and began rattling them.
You never saw eyes so wide or a guy move so fast. Needless to say, he was the only one not laughing hysterically.
But from now on, whenever I head out on a golf course, I will always make sure I have some Tic Tacs packed away in my golf bag.
You just never know when you might need ’em.
