Three contractors

Post  Jakartan on Sun Oct 14, 2007 3:24 pm

Three contractors, one from India, another from Germany and the third from England, are bidding to repair the White House fence. A senior White House official takes them to see the fence.

The English contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring. Then he says, "The job will cost $900 . . . $400 for materials, $400 for labour and $100 profit for me."

The German contractor also does some measuring and then says, "I can do this job for $700 . . . $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Indian contractor doesn't measure anything, but then he whispers something to the official : " $2,700."

The official is surprised and then says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high price?"

"Easy," the Indian explains, "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Germany to do the work!"

Guess who got the contract........................!!

I bet the Indian contractor got the project.
That's a very funny joke. Thanks, Jakartan.
