What does 3 holes in the ground mean?

I was reading the other day and stumbled across this saying. Something about a man walked into his partners work place and when she wasn't there he was upset and left. Obviously, I need to tell you that he is in love with his partner. Her two friends were sitting there and when they said she wasn't there he walked out. The lady said "Three holes in the ground" and the man she was sitting with just laughed and nodded.

    The word "well" as in a well for water.You say it 3 times,so you have 3 holes in the ground.
