The was a man named George who got a new job. His fellow employees always met for a pool every Saturday for some cheap sets. They asked George to meet them at 10:00 Saturday morning. George replied that he would love to meet them, but he may be 10 minutes late.

On Saturday morning George was there at exactly 10:00. He played pool right handed and won the sets.

Next Saturday rolls around, and George says that he will be there, but he may be 10 minutes late again. He shows up right on time, plays pool left handed, and wins the sets. This continues for the next few weeks, with George always saying that he may be 10 minutes late, and then always winning the pool games and the cash, either left or right handed.

The other employees are getting tired of this, and decided to ask him what the deal was. They said, ''George, every Saturday you say you may be ten minutes late. You never are. Then you show up and play with either right hand or left hand, and always win. What is up with that?''

George replies, ''Well, I am a very superstitious kind of guy. Every Saturday when I wake up, I look over at my wife. If she is sleeping on her left side, I play left handed. If she is sleeping on her right side, I play right handed.''

''Well,'' one of the employees questioned, ''What happens if she is laying on her back?'' George replies, ''Then I am 10 minutes late.''
