There was once a man, playing alone, and he walked up to the tee and asked the foursome in front of him if he could possibly play through. The problem was that this single was deaf, and he couldn't talk. He ended up writing the request on a piece of paper and gave it to the foursome, at which one of the golfers tore the paper up and laughed in his face.
About the seventh hole, the deaf man was getting irritated with the slow play by the others and decided he was fed up with it. The foursome was just about to hit their second shots, when all of a sudden a ball flew by their heads almost hitting the man who tore up the paper.
They all looked back and all they could see was the deaf man holding up four fingers.
