Team Work – very nice

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in D.C. One from Bangladesh, another from India and the third, from China.

They go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The Bangladesh contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. “Well”, he says, “I figure the job will run about $900. <$400 for materials, $400 for my team and $100 profit for me>”.

The Chinese contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700. <$300 for materials, $300 for my team and $100 profit for me>”.

The Indian contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$2,700.”

The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure

The Indian contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from China to fix the fence.”
“Done!” replies the government official.

    Unfortunately this happens in the middle East in our countries and not in the White House.

    This is done Universally in all countries & there are no saints> Only Indians are targetted & exposed because this Democratic Country is exposed by the own press

    This is not an Indian, he is Lebanese and the Chinese man is Syrian. I knew them very well 😉
